Hey folks - couple of AE release items
seeing the same thing...its a hit or miss on different DTS/Dolby HD (most work great actually!! TKS for your work!!)
--Using the nightly from the yesterday and the day before
--Looks like warstomper and i have a ~similar~ setup (Realtek HDMI Output (ATI HDMI Audio)) Radeon HD 5450 with Realtek on MB (not used)
(at work crawlin board before posting issue...i can get you the logs later if needed)
So guys i think i figured out the HD audio/jitter thing or atleast how to avoid it. You all seem to have a similar setup as me...MB w/ (realtek) audio onboard and still enabled AND a (ATI HD XXXX) HTPC video card.
In this setup, the HTPC card either uses passthrough audio from your onboard sound ~or~ its applying the wrong driver to the card's audio. Either way, it works for all the basic stuff but not so well on the HD audio. Result - seems that AE is using the core in some of the cases and in other cases it is trying to convert it to something even lower...when it converts lower-->jitter
-Disable onboard audio in the bios (which we should have done in the first place ;-) )
-Go into the device manager and delete the sound devices you currently have (ex: Realtek HDMI Output (ATI HDMI Audio)) and make sure that it deletes the drivers too...check in the box i believe.
-While still in the device manager right click the computer name at the top of the list and scan for hardware changes. It will find it as a whole bunch of M$ stuff at first then settle down after a min or two to a generic M$ hdmi card....this is very important if it still says that its an Realtek device or some else that isn't MS or your HTPC card you didn't delete the drivers)
-Reinstall/update your HTPC video card drivers/software (ie Catalyst) to the latest ver
-Make sure it found the *sound* portion of your card in device manager
-Reconfigure the HDMI for your card for either 5.1 or 7.1 (or whatever) in sound->playback->configure
-While still in sound, goto the properties for the HDMI then the advanced tab
---You can test 24/192...but with my Onkyo 606B and ATI HD5450 it just plays everything out of front left/right
---i had to back it down to 24/96 before 7.1 went to the correct channels/speakers
NOW...go forth and enjoy all the AWESOME work that DDDamian and gnif (and MANY others on the AE project) have done!!!
