    I set up a new Onyko HT-S3300b AVR over the weekend and so far everything appears to be working great, except that I have this one minor irritation that I can't seem to find a solution to.

    When I play any video file (.MKV, .AVI) the audio doesn't start playing for about 5 seconds into the video. Note that once it does start to play, it's not out of sync, I'm not getting any jutters, and I can skip forward and backward without the audio dropping out again - but it's irritating that I consistently can't get that first 5 seconds of audio.

    Originally I had this set up to output PCM via DirectSound over an HDMI cable, but I've now set up bitstreaming per the instructions here: http://www.gollyjer.com/2011/02/quick-guide-how-to-bitstream-audio-in.html. The problem persists in both modes. After the delay, the sound fades in fairly quickly.

    I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the accursed HDCP handshake I've heard about, and if so, what I can do about it.

    EDIT: Oh, and the HDMI is going through my video card, a Radeon 6870, for clarification.

    EDIT #2: It turns out it does this on seek as well.

    Are you using a Windows "N" version or similar? Those versions are missing the Windows Media stuff, which need to be installed separately. The call which fails above is related to the Enhanced Video Renderer (EVR) which doesn't seem to find required filters

    That seems likely. I tried the h264 ts cutter (found here) and it sort of works with HEVC/x265. The Preview has problems decoding the image, but if you know the area where to cut you can find a place. I had to change the settings (as a dialogbox suggested) to I-Frames as Cut-In-Points and All-Frames as Cut-Out-Points or else the...
