Can you check if you disabled WASAPI in Windows audio control panel? Unchecking "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device"?

Well, I re-ran my complete test suite (all HD formats, up to 7.1, up to 24bit, up to 174.4kHz) with DirectSound selected instead of WASAPI - just to make sure my latest changes didn't break anything in this regard. DS was configured with default settings (16bit, 48kHz).
Everything went fine without any stutter or failure.
On Win7 disabling WASAPI breaks passthrough as expected. Wondering if Win8 does things differently.
Win8 does the same as Win7. As I said, all audio settings are defaults. This means both checkboxes in the audio panel affecting exclusive mode are checked.
In fact, I have reinstalled everything without changes to the installation defaults: Win8 CP with AMD Catalyst, AMD HDMI, and XBMC. Passthrough is fine with every output device option available: primary sound device, AMD DirectSound, AMD WASAPI. I.e. passthrough is supposed work out-of-the-box.

Every build advertised in this thread has that capability.
