    Ac3 + dts passthrough

    First of all, thanks a lot for this great codec pack!



    Im having a really weird issue.
    When I leave my HTPC on idle for about 2 hours (main menu), when try to play a MKV with DTS or AC3 audio, I have a codec failure.
    If I close the Media Portal and open it, everything works fine until it stays on idle for about 2 hours.

    I run Vista x86 + SAF + AC3Filter with DTS and AC3 Passtrough. All the standby options are disabled on windows.

    Any ideas?

    OK, I'm now using UNlocked SAF, but I still don't think I am getting DXVA, as when I watch live HD Tv it's very jittery and CPU usage is up over 60%.
    My onboard graphics is ATI HD3200, and using Vista x86. Similar motherboard downstairs (different brand, same chipset) is fine, does DXVA on HD TV with PDVD7 Codec installed.

    Upstairs I am trying SAF as that didn't work, and I've got the PDVD9 option selected in TV config. I've also got the option to use hardware acceleration selected in the DirectShow bit. But it still doesn't seem to work...

    Attached is my graph - it seems to be using the correct codec? But I don't know how to tell if dxva is used. Do I need to do something to activate it for the PDVD9 side? I remember the actual PDVD software had a tickbox for turning it on and off so perhaps that setting needs activating some other way? Or is the problem going to be something else?

    Thanks for any pointers!

    Yes... I think one thing I might try is playing back the recording on the other PC - perhaps it's slow recording which is where the jitter comes from... I think it was playing back BD rips OK so it's just live tv giving trouble - perhaps I have an IO bottleneck recording the TS to disk?

    Cyberlink Audio Decoder - this is not part of SAF, i bet this one causing your problem.

    Hi Hoborg, I tried using Beta 17 to get WMV from gametrailers working but no luck :(

    You wrote in another thread that standard OS Codecs are used to decode WMV (Windows 7 in my case), but this does not seem to be the case here (please see graph)

    What's the problem? The audio or the video part?
