I have the past few days been trying to find out what my next new mediacentre gfx should be.

Currently my setup is as follows:

amd 64x2 3800+
2 gb ddr2.
gf7200GS

it plays 720p fine without any problems, but it has some (quite alot) difficulties with 1080p (surprise?).

That is why i want to upgrade, but at the same time i want to secure it for the future - so which nvidia gfx's has hd audio passthrough ?

I have failed to get the information myself, it just doesent show up any of the places that i have been searching.

Hope you can help

Henrik

As far as I know, none of the current Nvidia cards support bitstreaming of HD audio formats (ie TruHD), which is the advantage of the current ATI cards (5xxx). Both cards however can decode to 8 channel LPCM, which is lossless and theoretically the exact same quality. The difference lies in whether the computer decodes or your receiver does. For a good breakdown of current cards and their capabilities check:

During the entire last 10+ years using MP with an Hauppauge HVR-2250 tuner, I've never had any problem at all recording any 2 clear QAM channels simultaneously -- until last July. Last July, my cable company decided to 'reorganize' their channels. This included, for the first time, placing two HD channels in the same frequency band at...

Hi technoweary Don't get me wrong the MP AR is the recommended renderer for everything except TV and normally works very well but in my case I ran into a problem with it when using the Skype plugin, the connection to the audio device (my AVR) was lost but worked fine when I set it for the Direct Sound device. I do need to investigate...

RESOLVED - Turns out that anything with an Intel chip since about 2009 has what seems to be an OS subsytem called Intel Management Engine. This led me to update my BIOS and hey presto my recordings are now working without video breakup. The last Intel ME update was around April, and that's about the time I first noticed issues...
