Re: Which audio codec should I use? (Bad sound in MP, VLC OK) Solved it! Changed the Asus D2x config center to use PCM and not DTS or DDL. Doing this I could setup ffdshow to use DDL and DTS. Then I enabled the ffdshow filter inside mediaportal. When it is setup this way, the enconding in done on the amplifier and NOT on HTPC.

Re: MP Does not output movies as PCM ? You might be right. I am woundering why I cannot see the PCM signal on the reciever when playing video files inside mediaportal. It seems to be that it handles the DTS/DD signal, which it should not. The reciever should do this job. When I play Blu-Rays (from PS3) or DVDs from a normal DVD...

No, only SAF 6.14 WIP. Now that I've figured out that I have to use ReClock anyway to get proper sound from 5.1 AAC files, I think I'm gonna drop SAF again and go back to LAFV with ReClock.

Did some testing again and frankly speaking, I hardly hear any difference between DSD vs PCM. Must have been the receiver's listening modes interfering back then. Or smoked too much. I shouldn't be able to hear it at 42, but DSD seems slightly more crisp/dynamic but that's it. I hooked up a pair of JMlab speakers for this purpose, in...

I have found the answer. The extension .flv given by the downloaded system used ( RealPlayer) with the h264 video codec and the aac/aac+ audio codec confuses the codec mediaportal has to use. If i only change the extension from .flv to .m4a without any transcodification it works all well. Thanks Jordi
