It doesn't seem that the issues are related to Windows installation.

I downloaded and installed the intel management software, but it didn't work.
I think I'm going to reinstall windows and start from scratch. I feel like I've fiddled with the software too much now and it's worse than before.
Is there another OS I can use that'll work for sure with XBMC to bitstream. Otherwise, I'll just reinstall and try to just download the bare essentials.
This is insane, I opted for high end processor because I didn't want any issues.
I'm also worried its a handshake issue, but my problem lies in the 'Compatible Formats' section of 'playback device'.
Since you are using Intel HD3000 iGPU, you need to precisely do as below to playback blu-ray in 1080P and bitstreaming HD audio fluently-
1. Connects: HTPC-->AVR-->HDTV via HDMI cables (set AVR to pass-thru video)
2. Install the latest Intel driver from here- Check your system for the latest updates
3. Select Intel High Definition audio output in Windows 7 control panel/hardware and sound/sound/playback
4. Select "Audio output device WASAPI: "Onkyo TX-SR606" (Intel High Definition......)" in XBMC settings/system/audio output
5. Disable DXVA2 and everything else in XBMC settings/video/playback
6. Enable "Use a fullscreen window rather than true fullscreen" in XBMC settings/system/video output
7. Try to playback BD with HD audio
-If you are still having problem after you done all the above, you can try Realtek HD audio codecs "High Definition Audio Codecs".....
If you need more info on how to bitstream using XBMC, you can check out this thread- Windows How to Bitstreaming using XBMC.........

Please see my latest reply above....
I'm also having trouble getting my bitstreaming working on an ASRock H77M-ITX using i3-3220T. I tried loading the Intel Management Engine from the ASRock website, and also the Intel site. I've also went to the intel driver detect page and it says I'm up to date. What concerns me is that I do not have any device that says "Intel High Definition Audio".
I have these in my device manager:
Intel HD Graphics date 10/17/2012 version 126.96.36.19975
Realtek High Definition Audio 10/18/2011 version 188.8.131.5282 - Realtek Semiconductor Corp. - location 0
High Definition Audio Device 11/19/2010 version 6.1.7601.17514 - Microsoft - location 3

Prior to updating my Realtek drivers, I've noticed that both my TV and AVR show up as audio output devices. Is this behavior normal? I think if both the TV and AVR are on, the TV shows up as an audio device. I would need to do some more testing to verify. Just reboot with TV off, and I suspect the Yamaha will show up as output.
This is an upgrade from a previous system. I used Sysprep to strip out hardware info (yes, i know a clean install is better for a MB swap), but I have spent so much time getting everything working perfectly, I wanted to avoid a fresh install if at all possible.
Could there be some specific setting in my Bios that needs to be set? I'm willing to try a fresh install, but would rather spend a little more time troubleshooting before I go that route.
Here's my original post over at avsforum. No replies to that one yet
