Hi everyone.
I've set up a system with an i3 Haswell Nuc connected to a Pioneer VSX510 AVR. I'm running the latest OpenElec nightly and I have installed the latest Intel bios.
It works fine overall except for one thing : in 1080p 50 or 60hz, although it plays Dolby Digital and DTS sound works fine via passthrough, other formats such as MP3, flac, wav don't work in 1080p. I don't have the system sounds either. When I switch to 720p or 1080 24p it works fine.
I'm not sure if it comes from the receiver, the NUC, Linux, OpenElec or XBMC, and I haven't read a similar problem like this before in the thread.
Any clue ?
Thanks

Known bug in some Pioneer receivers in combination with intel gpus. Set your Audio output to Fixed and resample to 48 khz.

My i5 Haswell is working well, doing everything I want it to do. Am I doing something wrong?
