After much jigging and poking I have got MKV's and DVD ISO's to make use of either ffdshow or AC3 in 5.1 surround sound (Dolby Digital I think) but for some reason, I've not been able to get AVI's to work in surround despite the AVI I'm testing in particularly coming from the Microsoft website and definitely having 5.1.

If I play the clip in Windows Media Player 11 I get regular 2 channel sound as with MP however if I use Media Player classic my amp automatically detects a Dolby Digital 3/2.1 signal and plays as it should.

Obviously one way of fixing the issue is just to use an external player but I would rather not do that so I'm hoping someone here will be able to help!

A bit of background info is that the system is an Aopen MP45-DR running Vista 64bit which is fully up-to-date with a new install of MP an the following codecs installed; AC3, ffdshow and Combined Community Codec Pack.

Cheers

    put money on it being wmv, enable the play wmv within internal player option under the video player options.

    Also in ffdshows audio config, you will see wma support is disabled, try enabling and see if that makes a difference.

    I've already played with the tick box for the WMV bit within MP to no sucess, I'll have a closer look at ffdshows later.

    Additionally. Unchecking the TRUE-HD bitstreaming option in LAV settings allows mediaportal to play the TRUE HD audio, but without ATMOS being recognized.

    Hi and thanks for the quick reply. I tried option 1 but it wouldn't let me navigate to the Ext HDD where the files reside. I have used option 2 and have attached the log created. The first file played did not work but the 2nd did. I hope this is more helpful. Thanks again.
