Running the latest version (Eden+patch) installed and I've noticed that when playing either DD, DTS or DTS-HD files on the codec info screen the missed counter goes up rapidly - by around 10 per second. Is this expected behaviour or is this indicative of a problem?

**Just reverted to Final Eden and behaviour appears the same as in the patched version, so ignore the above. Looks to be unrelated to the patch itself.

Do you have sync playback to display enabled?
I have that "problem" for months now. If I enable the sync option the missed counter starts racing up (but playback seems fine).
This started months ago with the nightlies for me so way before any HD audio patch...

Yes I do have sync playback to display enabled. Since my post I have tried a few more files and thus far I've not been able to spot any issues apart from that number rocketing up!

Thanks for confirming it isn't just me Smile

With 30fps WMV files, the fps counter of the OSD fluctuates between 22 and 33 fps and with 25fps WMVs it's between 22 and 27fps. The drop:xx counter doesn't show any dropped frames but there are a lot of skips and jumps in the picture.
Does vanilla Eden exhibit the same behavior? Neither am I an expert in the video processing part of XBMC nor did I dare to touch it.

It's not necessary at all - I've thrown it in for a snappier UI experience. Delete it if you don't like it.

Which seems to be collected without debug logging enabled, thus missing the interesting info. At least I can't see an error initializing audio output.

May be the advancedsettings.xml that I've thrown in for convenience causes havoc on your setup. You may delete it.

With a hardware setup like yours, jumping straight to a non-standard release with additional demands on the subtleties and intricaties of HDMI might be too big a step in the first place. Your hardware and the drivers involved here need to be solid enough to setup and maintain a HD-audio channel between XBMC and your attached AVRs. There are quite some tips in this forum in this regard.

I don´t have sync to display enabled.
Tested with true-hd, dts-ma and no problem at all.
Did a run with some dvd iso when my daughter sat in the sofa and no problem with that.

Thx again Smile

Hey Daniela - awesome you did the 11.0 build and added goodies Smile Haven't tried yet as I'm finally putting together a better server setup, but hope to soon. Only have one DTS-wav to test, most have been decoded to m/c PCM and flac'd for song seperation and metadata embedding, but can test with that and grab some more.

Glad you kept at it Wink

No, it doesn't happen with Eden downloaded from the official site. I did some more tests and I tend to believe that the problem happens with 'non-standard' audio streams i.e. flac or WMA.
I tested a WMV with DTS sound and it run smoothly but another movie with flac sound had the same problems.

All the files I tested run smoothly with DDDamian's patched RC2

Awesome Patch!! Anybody wants to setup a DL mirror? The Dropbox link isn't working anymore (too much traffic).

I really want to download and install this patch and get it all up and running asap Smile

Thanks in advance.

Interesting! Do you happen to have a sample for me to bite and chew on?
