You can now limit the bandwidth of high-def streams so that you'll be able to play the dts-core when your hardware doesn't support the high bandwidth requirement of dts-hd.
In ~/.xbmc/userdata add the maxpassthroughbandwidth to limit bandwidth to suitable rate for your system.
768000 is the default setting
Values to try: 48000, 192000 and 192001
48000 should always work, but will alway limit you to dts-core. 192000 and 192001 (they are equivalent in bandwidth by have different channel/frequency mappings) may work and will pass-through dts-hd. There are some dts-hd videos that will exceed this bandwidth and cause distortion.
Ok I will give it a try tonight but afaik my hw should support it, it's a core i3 (not sandy bridge the previous one).
