When using LAV, i can also play the sound etc, but i cannot really check if it's bitstreaming TrueHD; to be honest, my receiver doesn't have the fancy light that i want It only became clear to me when i saw FFdshow's popup that it was outputting the signal als PCM 5.1. Since LAV doesn't have a system tray icon when playing, i cannot really test if it is TrueHD untouched, or PCM that it's producing.

Plus the fact, that im still a bit confused on this:



Every1 has TrueHD etc enlisted as a codec, wether they manage to bitstream or not.
Im really starting to doubt my receiver at this point.
From the above dialog box you posted it's indicating that the soundcard is only capable of bitstreaming traditional Dolby Digital 5.1/6.1 and DTS 5.1/6.1. This is not a receiver issue unfortunately, I would contact gigabyte support and find out from them if they know if in fact your board does in fact bitstream HD audio format's, my guess is they've locked it down so it can't.

Hi m8,

i double checked:

Realtek ALC882/ALC889/ALC892/ALC899 supports the streaming of the new lossless multichanel codecs like Dolby True HD and DTS HD and actually they are 8-channel onboard high definition audio codecs, which are widely used by the Intel high definition audio controllers, ASRock motherboards, Asus notebooks and Dell laptops. With Realtek ALC882/ALC889/ALC892/ALC899 HD Audio Driver R2.59 updated, you are able to experience the sound fantasy brought by Realtek products.

Realtek ALC882/ALC889/ALC892/ALC899 7.1+2 Channel High Definition Audio codecs can use this HD Audio codecs driver R2.59 without any problems. It will fix any audio sound problems of your laptop, desktop computers


So it should be able to do so...

The chip itself does support it, however Gigabyte can and will choose to disable the feature, like I've said my Gigabyte board supports 8ch PCM, however Gigabyte chose to limit it to 2channel and no driver or bios update will fix it. And they admitted to it and it's well documented. So I would not be the least bit surprised if they've pulled a similar stunt with your board.

I'm never even seen 32 bit audio.. Highest I've seen is 24/192. Anyways my HDMI out was repeating channels and giving me 3.1 so I googled. Thought my drivers were up to date but nope.

Get the HDMI one (3rd down) and report back? It fixed my issues.

@JeremyFR;
Indeed, the chipset / mobo doesn't support the sound codec. However, i wasn't smart enough to realize that since i've got an AMD Liano A8, the sound is actually being processed by the CPU / APU...

Anyway, problem solved:

The Samsung receiver didn't support passthrough -.-
Got me an Onkyo 509, and everything is as it should be.

True HD hurray!

Thx all for thinking along with me.

Kind regards,
Kami.

Glad to hear you got it figured out, I just got my HTPC back up and running yesterday after the power supply in my old case died, so got to experience my first Dolby True, and DTS MA last night on my new Yamaha RX-A800, now to get my 2 satellites hooked up that I just picked up for full 7.2 goodness (yes I'm running dual subs and its amazing compared to just one hehe)
