    According to Intel your VGA does support DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD bitsreaming and according to Yamaha website your AVR supports the following formats:

    Dolby TrueHD
    Yes
    Dolby Digital Plus Yes
    DTS-HD Master Audio Yes

    So taking this into account go to LAV Audio configuration and check under "Bitstreaming (S/PDIF, HDMI)":
    Dolby Digital (AC-3) --> CHECK
    Dolby Digital Plus (E-AC3) --> CHECK
    Dolby TrueHD --> CHECK
    DTS --> CHECK
    DTS-HD --> CHECK

    After that is done go to MP Codecs configuration and there change your Audio Renderer to "Direct Sound (INTEL HDMI Audio)"

    P.S. Since i don't use intel vga i am not sure how intel calls their HDMI Audio Device.

    When that is done play a video file which u know has one of these codecs for audio.

    If everything is done properly ur AVR should report which codec ur file has.

    If you dont like the results u can always switch back to ur initial setup by un-checking everything under bitstreaming options in LavAudio settings and then changing the audio renderer to MP Audio Renderer.

    @aspik. In answer to your questions.

    My avr is pioneer lx-sc87. It's last year's model and is probably one of the top of the line pioneer home receivers. It supports video pass through.

    I bought the gefen because of the htpc issues i outlined above. In addition i bought it to solve the problem where you have to turn things on in a certain order. I tried all the other solutions to this problem including the hdmi cable pin mod but nothing was reliable. The gefen solved ask these problems and is 100% stable.

    I'm very happy with the purchase, although it is not a cheap solution it costs maybe 100usd (i forget exactly how much).

    Got a Denon AVR here and if i turn off the AVR while my HTPC is on then next time i turn on again the AVR i got like 80% chance of getting picture back properly or a 20% chance of either getting a black screen or a screen that is having corrupt colours.
