Soundcards and Soundsystems (1 Viewer)

Discussions about Soundcards and Soundsystems in here
As far as I know, in audio codecs like ffdshow / ac3filter you can select DTS / Dolby / AC3 passthrough, so samplerate and bitrate will be identical as present in the source. There are also settings which makes it possible to always reencode the audio so samplerate and bitrate can be selected, however that would in theory introduce...

I don't use it due to the sound from my LCD being pretty terrible, but I have tried passthrough (using my Yamaha RX-V1065) before. Basically, from memory, the problem is that your TV can't decode it. Unfortunately if you want to get the sound working in passthrough mode, you'll need to set ffdshow to transcode AC3 to something else.

got it thanks. Installed the shark007 codec pack and set ffdshow to your settings. The passthrough option on the realtek killed the sound though. I changed output under mixer to "same as input"- and left the realtek setting to output digital audio source. 5.1 on DVD's - yay!!!

AW: no MP3 playback possible after installing a new soundcard Hi, i had the same problem and it could be solved if you switch your sounddevices in mepo from directsound to (in my case!) speakers (asus xonar d1) audio device and also disable asus gx in the config panel of your soundcard.

Hello, I've conected my amplifier via coaxial to TV SPDIF out and the TV via hdmi (of ATI graphics) to the PC. I use ffdshow with passthrough options.

Hi guys, thanks for you answers - I have fixed it now - I was being rather dumb.:oops: Having HDMI audio enabled via the NVIDIA driver DOES prevent PC volume control - but the NVIDIA driver DOES allow you to disable audio - thus re-enabling the analogue sound device and enabling volume control.

Thanks for the reply and the insight! Since I don't have any speakers connected in my 'equipment' room I've never been bothered by viewing a video w/o sound.

I think you can't do anything about it, except re-encode all your 44,1khz material to 48khz or the other way around through software. Many people do this, because software makes a better job in resampling. Well, your soundcard does it on the fly, so what do you expect..... For players like MPC to be able to switch the output-rate...

The problem is that S/PDIF only has enough bandwidth to carryeither stereo decoded audio or a DD/DTS bitstream. If you want to have multi-channel decoded audio or the HD formats (TrueHD/DTS-HD MA) then you need a HDMI connection and a setup that will allow you to send LPCM over HDMI. (some HDMI connections only add an S/PDIF...

Hi, wouldn't use a car amp. The power supply u would need would be expensive and big (230V DC->12V AC, >15A). Unfortunately I don't have concrete ideas. Maybe you can check out some mini AV systems and use the amp of this system? Cheers henning

S/PDIF will pass Dolby Digital and DTS, but none of the high-resolution audio formats on Blu-Ray (Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD High Resolution, and DTS-HD Master Audio). But, without a high-end receiver or amp and solid speaker setup, you won't hear much of a difference between them.
