... Do you think it's worth experimenting with
in the advancedsettings?

@ix400 - I do not think so, I believe AE is failing to determine that the sink is open in the correct format on your system.

gnif - you are short on sleep - Memphiz is OSx lol - but I got the ping
he keeps getting a sink flagged for restart msg - often prefixed by:
ix400 - can you disable stereo upmix in your gui setttings under System>Audio Output? see if that's borking it.
EDIT: tried on mine - stereo upmix wasn't causing an issue, nor should it on passthrough, just noticed it on and it's still a little raw. Still digging.
EDIT2: you say it happens with the file copied locally as well?

I will do some more tests with locally stored files tomorrow.

i have a problem with switching hdmi devices. switching off tv and start music with android phone for just listening music causes a windows error. i often get these error after resuming from s3 when i start htpc at first and then amp and tv. with right start order it works. in xbmc.log i found
ERROR: CAEsinkWASAPI::AddPackets: Endpoint buffer timed out
ERROR: CAEsinkWASAPI::AddPackets: GetBuffer failed due to AUDCLNT_E_DEVICE_INVALIDATED
same problem after resume tv standby.

@nimo - yes, we need to add code to react if you shut off a device - AUDCLNT_E_DEVICE_INVALIDATED means the device is no longer available, whether turned off or unplugged. Right now we just log the error until you change the output device.
It's on the list
HDMI is supposed to handshake properly, and doesn't - unfortunately that's a manufacturer issue. All we can do is fall back to another device - we can't force anything to do a handshake again.

Damian and Gnif,
I did a little more research. Here the results:
1. I tried to directly play high bit rate DTS-MA tracks from the SSD on which Win7 is installed. Works without any flaws, no buffering.
2. Playing the same files from my NAS causes buffering.
3. Testing with other high bit rate files, containing regular DTS or AC3, also results in buffering during playback.
4. Sometimes, for no obvious reason, it starts working without buffering.
As a non AE test build for cross testings I used Daniella's second latest build, which can play all files from my NAS without any buffering issues.
Hence, to me it looks like a "Frodo-NAS-access-performace"-issue that hasn't been present in the final Eden builds.

as you may have noticed, I've released a HD audio patched build derived from current master which should be pretty much on par with AE when it comes to XBMC's codebase. I've done that to provide a testing sidekick to AE. If you happen to see similar issues on both builds then there's a good chance that it's origin is in base XBMC code.

Hi guys and girl great work hdmi switching problem is sorted for me but i now have no audio in tv series what are mp3? cheers for any advice
RE: [Windows] AudioEngine testers - Windows platform only - TRaSH - 2012-04-28 10:34
i did a few test with the latest build,
seems that the issues i had are solved.
DTS-HD MA 5.1
also i'm able to choose in the system-settings "use exclusive mode"
somehow that wasn't possible for me with the old version.
will do some more testing later this day.
for now i must say it works great
