Bitstream HD audio? Using nightlies - AbMagFab - 2011-11-25 18:37
I've almost got everything worked out now. The last piece is getting HD audio working. I tried on an Ubuntu box to no avail, so I've been trying a Windows 7 (Ultimate) box for the last couple of days.
It's got a Radeon 6300 in it (ZBox nano AD10), so it's capable of HD audio bit streaming.
It's hooked up to a Denon 1909, which can play HD audio.
In Windows, it says that the audio driver is capable of DTS-HD and Dolby True HD.
In XBMC, I've picked the WSAPI driver, but I've also tried the DirectSound drivers.
Everything results in max 48k compressed audio, or for TrueHD it says that it's getting multichannel (which might be uncompressed, I can't tell just yet).
I'm using the XBMC Windows nightlies from the XBMC site.
(FWIW, HD audio was working fine on the PCH, so I know the source files are right, but I've grown to dislike the PCH and I love XBMC.)
Thanks in advance for any help!

I'm downloading now, but that looks like a complete build of XBMC. I need to use pre-Eden (BD ISO support).
How do I merge pre-Eden with whatever is supporting HD audio in the rar file?

Just be prepared for really finicky audio with all the pre-Eden nightlies that play HD audio with the audio engine. The only things I've found that were good were the pre-Eden DSPlayer version or using a regular pre-Eden build with MPC HC. Both of those versions are perfect for me, no glitches whatsoever.

It actually just worked. This Is pretty awesome
But I have a couple of issues:
1) I can no longer set deinterlacing on anything. It's set to off, but I need it set to Auto at a minimum. I need to set this on my SD material.
2) DTS-HD MA has periodic audio dropouts. I configured it just like the screen shots, and tried exclusive on as well, and tried turning off audio sync, but still steady audio drop outs on DTS HD MA (about every minute or so).
3) It doesn't support the "-d" parameter, which allows for a delayed startup. This is critical in Windows as it just minimizes without a good 60 second delay on auto-login.

Good luck. I have about the most overpowered HTPC in the history of the world and high end A/V equipment. I couldn't get it glitch free with a perfect picture until I switched to using MPC HC as an external player for all my HD audio files.

Will it play BD ISOs? Got a pointer to how to integrate with XBMC?
Or should I just give up and go back to the sluggish UI of Popcorn Hour?

you can try to set power option to "high performance or balance" in control panel and set avr to pass-through video
