Tried one more thing, that is the Lord Of The Rings Extended Edition with DTS-ES

Unfortunately, it totally screws up my Onkyo 609 receiver. Lots of clicking and switching. Seems
like it can't lock on to the right format and keeps switching modes.

BTW, the latest XBMC with the Audio Engine (the 20120405 build) works flawlessly.

Hi, can you show me which build exactly you mean? I couldn't find it somehow.
I'm using the Onkyo 609 too and I would love to have HD audio working correctly.
Thank you.

Thank you.

If you go here:

https://github.com/DDDamian/xbmc/downloads

you'll find all recent XBMC builds implementing audio bitstreaming.

With my setup so far:

- DanielaE's patch works ok, except for DTS-ES (lots of stuttering, receiver which can't lock on to the right format)
- The AudioEngine stuff works ok for DTS-ES, but some other movies with DTS don't work ok (lots of stuttering, audio and video)

Is it me or does it look like all the people having problems are using an Onkyo receiver?

My Onkyo HT-RC270 work fine.....and I don't think that AVR is the issue.

It could be related to patches, because they said it works fine with AE. Unfotunately, I don't have Lord of the Rings Extended Edition with DTS-ES to try it on my HTPC.....

If nobody does it sooner, I will upload a clip of LOTR and Star Wars both with DTS-ES tonight.

Somewhere a few pages back you'll find a short clip of Star Wars, but this results in no sound on my TX-NR609. I have a MKV BD rip, which results in stuttering (modes changes on the receiver, brief few secs of audio and video which is skipping like hell).

As I mentioned before, both movies play fine on AE (AudioEngine), but I've other problems with AE. Lots of movies with DTS (plain DTS) result in similar effects, while the HD formats and DTS-ES play ok.

I confirm that there is a problem with DTS-ES. I had mixed results:
Se7en, Collector's Edition DVD
Code:
Audio #7
ID                                       : 189 (0xBD)-142 (0x8E)
Format                                   : DTS

Format profile                           : ES
Muxing mode                              : DVD-Video
Duration                                 : 416ms
Bit rate mode                            : Constant
Bit rate                                 : 755 Kbps

Channel positions                        : Front: L C R, Side: L R, Back: C, LFE / Front: L C R, Side: L R, LFE

Bit depth                                : 16 bits
Compression mode                         : Lossy
Stream size                              : 38.3 KiB (0%)

Video plays in fast forward and I get no sound. On the OSD I see this: Audio: dca, 0 channels

LotR-The Return of the King, Extended DVD
Code:
Audio #7

The movie plays fine and the OSD reports audio type and channels correctly. The AVR locks the signal as DTS-ES 6.1.

System
ATI5450 connected to Onkyo TX-SR507 via HDMI

Let me know if you need a log.

No, but getting HD audio from XBMC doesn't mean that we have to sacrifice all other non-HD audio types Smile

.mkv: video, but no audio

.m2ts: video, no audio. Video stops after 10 secs (the 20th Century Fox logo)

My receiver is an Onkyo TX-NR609.

HTPC has been based on a Llano A3650 with A75 chipset. Output device set to Directsound: AMD HDMI. Didn't try WASAPI. Should that matter at all ?

@loekf - absolutely it matters, Use WASAPI for passthrough, not DirectSound. DirectSound uses system mixers which essentially prevent passthrough. Make sure your Windows settings are set for WASAPI exclusive mode as well.

System: XBMC HTPC with HDMI WASAPI & AudioEngine - Denon AVR-3808CI - Denon DVD-5900 Universal Player - Denon DCM-27 CD-Changer
- Sony BDP-S580 Blu-Ray - X-Box 360 - Android tablet wireless remote - 7.1 Streem/Axiom/Velodyne Surround System
If I have been able to help feel free to add to my reputation +/- below - thanks!
