What it is odd is I play Blu Ray movies w/ DD and DTS w/ PDVD8, I play OTA ATSC TV w/ DD w/ my Hauppage TV Tuner, I play DVD's w/ DD and DTS w/ VLC set to waveout the same as I do w/ XP (dual boot)Create a Restore point First
I'm asumming you using the Creative for sound.
Here's alink to the latest drivers, but there is no Windows 7 drivers, you'll have to try the Vista drivers.
2 ZS Platinum&subCatName=Audigy&CatName=Sound+Blaster
A Vista driver for the TV tuner can be located here:
Yes I am using spdif out, but I am using the rca coaxial varietyIf you're getting DD and DTS, you must be using a optical connection, correct.
What Blue-ray player appears in Windows Media Center?
I've never had luck with VLC outing in DD or DTS.
Is this a manufacturer built PC?
lmao thx, yeah I got it connected to a 105w pr channel 7.1 channel Yamaha receiver, but I use pre-outs to power amps, a 200w pr channel Adcom power amp running the mains, and a 325w pr channel Adcom power amp running the (2x) dual 15" subs, the center and rears run off the receiverIt's to bad there wasn't a way for your Power DVD 8 to appear in Media Center.
I have an HP Ultimate and it came bundled with a Cyberlink program called Blue-ray HD DVDPlay but it's only specific to HP's
That;s what pops up when I use Media Center.
Do you have this connected up to your Home Theater receiver?
Thanks for the tip about VLC, I'll give that a try. It had gone into configuration and checked the DD and DTS options, but still wouldn't work.
That's some hell of a machine you've got, it look like a forensic workstation.
Sounds like you have some nice gear bro'Nice!!!,
Adcom always made great components.
Mines connected to a 105 watt (discrete channels) Marantz 7.1 receiver, Klipsh, Boston Acoustics and Velodyne sub.
That makes my think, I have an old Akai Reference Master integrated amp from England (when Akai used to build quality equipment). This thing is a monster, weighing in a over 50 pounds.
I'm looking to by 2 Velodyne Mini V 10's and could power them using the Akai.
The Akai was originally designed t for DAT tape mastering, but I've got it setup with a mime disk player to make a true digital recording.. I can't take the Akai over -34 db as it is so loud...but no distortion whatsoever.
Marantz is nice gear, I used to run the 180w Maranatz mono blocks amps off a Marantz pre-pro w/ a stand alone Marantz DD processor back in the dayActually, the only reason I have the Marantz is because my nephew is a dealer and a custom audio-video installer.
He got the Marantz for me at wholesale cost + 10%
It plays all the latest formats including HDCD, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital-Plus, THX 2 surroundEX certified, dts Master Audio in addition to all the other common formats. It's also software upgradeable using the RS-232 port for future formats.
Eventually I'd like to get Atlantic technology speakers all the way around.
BTW, did we ever fix your computer problem as we got side tracked there
You are absolutely right about the tv card drivers, I looked again, I get DD in XP w/ my TV card because I upgraded to WinTV 7Yeah, I was wondering if we finished our conversation about Media Center
A Marantz mono-block nowadays can set you back $6,000.00
I really think it pertains to the audio and TV card drivers.
When they get off their as and start writing drivers I think it will be fine.
You could alway shoot them of a e-mail and ask about windows support in the future.
Guess what? Creative labs doesn't have a 64-bit Vista driver for my sound card, and I installed the 32-bit Vista driver and trashed my Win7 RC installation, but after a fresh minimalist install of Win7 RC I have successfully configured WinTV 7 w/ DDNo problem,
Good talking to ya!
