Does you have a newer version, because from this link http://www.2shared.com/file/AyTBC-XM/xbmc_hd_audio.html file is from August 5 and sometime when I stops a movie, xbmc is freezingI thought that you understood. There is no other version of XBMC with DTS-HD and TrueHD other than the version in my link. I linked it in August, but it's the July version of Pre-Eden.
Are all your drivers up to date? You can try to change the power option in control panel to "high performance".

ptaylor999 Wrote:Hi Bluray. It's me again.Sorry to read all your troubles. If I remember you correctly, you have Pioneer AVR, right? I believe that it have something to with Pre-Eden and Pioneer. Everyone with Pioneer AVR have the same problem as you when playback DTS-HD, but with other AVR seems to be fine.
ptaylor999 Wrote:... I'm going to try a new approach. I'm soon going to reinstall windows from scratch, including wiping my C drive. My plan is to start fresh with the goal of making your plan work. I want to ONLY install what is absolutely necessary to achieve this goal. Currently I have every audio and video codec and filter under the sun installed as I was a noobie and was trying different things. It's a bit of a mess. I have since determined exactly how I want my movies to play and what format I want to use. The plan is to have a 100% .iso movie library that plays through your version of XBMC. But I have some questions:When in doubt, it might be the best idea to wipe it clean. If you use this PC for HPTC only, I'm recommending to turn off all the auto update option and turn off all the auto play options.
ptaylor999 Wrote:- I'm running an Intel HD Audio setup (Core i5). Will I need to install any filters or extra codecs in addition to the Intel HD drivers to get HD audio to play from XBMC as per your plan? I don't feel I need the Realtek drivers as my Intel drivers should cover it. Any advice here?I'm not familiar with Intel iGPU, but you can always update the latest driver from their website.
ptaylor999 Wrote:- Will your xbmc_hd_audio mount iso files? Or do I still need Virtual Clone?If you follow my guide, you don't need it.
ptaylor999 Wrote:So, just so we're clear, my initial plan is to reinstall Windows 7 Ultimate, install the Intel Drivers, install XBMC Dharma 10.1, and then run XBMC from the xbmc_hd_audio folder, as per your instructions. Simple and straight forward. Am I missing anything?Instead of install Dharma 10.1, you can do as I did in post #344.

Oh....i never used pre-eden. I always used dharma 10.1 or nightly biulds in one folder and your hd-audio-version in another folder. Will try now to use pre-eden from'your link.

ah, changed nothing

Thanks for your tips on getting true-hd and dts-ma working until official eden comes out!
I had a question about the step of installing either Dharma 10.1 or as you said in post 344, you can install the eden version you posted.
Is there any reason why I can't install the official nightlies instead of the one you linked to? As long as I launch xbmc from the hd audio folder?

elecga Wrote:Hey bluray,i don't see why not, but i never test it with nightlies. i know for sure it works with dharma 10.1 and post 344.
you can try it with nightlies. if doesn't work, you can always try the other two versions in my posts.

Thanks a lot for this excellent guide bluray!
I had no problems setting it up and finally I got the DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD lights to shine up on my Onkyo 606. Big thanks!
I'm using a nightly build of XBMC by the way.

First I want to say "thank you" for the outlook on the potential future of xbmc.
Are there any plans from your side to update to a more recent nightly pre-eden version? I ask as some updates were incorporated in the latest pre-eden that seem very necessary to me (e.g. working wheather or some skins that need a pre-eden version later than yours)
