good day. In General, to output the sound as bitsream usually used either the video card or sound card while asus hdav. Both options work perfectly. Recently changed the motherboard on the Gigabyte Z97x-Gaming 7 and processor Intel Core i5-4570T. In the end, Kodi sound can be displayed on WASAPI through the Intel Audio R, checked and indeed receiver (Yamaha A1020) determines the input signal as it should be, such as DTS HD MASTER or Dolby TrueHD. Sites motherboard and CPU about bitstream found nothing. Or some glitch in the system or is now no need to buy a separate audio or video card?

P.S. when checking no external graphics card or sound were not installed

Hi! First post here, after reading a few things. I have a feeling that my current laptop will link up and play things in 'true' 5.1 etc sound. But if you could have a look at what I say below, and clarify if I'm missing anything or even missing the point, that would be great:

Intel Core i7-4510U CPU @ 2.00GHz
64 Bit Windows 10
NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M
Realtek High Defeinition Audio (This seems to be the audio driver)
HDMI out

I will be buying a receiver with 5.1 speakers, and will make sure that it is up to date and able to decode certain files etc. The main reason for this post is to make sure there is point to buy a system or if I need an external sound card or anything elsw to support it.

Basically, with this Laptop setup and the Audio system, will I be able to play video files that have 5.1 containted through bitstreaming, using eg. XBMC (Kodi) and the same for audio Flac files (or even Foobar for this) through my HDMI slot, or will I have to get an external sound card?

Hi all

I have a similar setup to the OP: AMD 5600K with Onkyo ST-3500 5.1 system.

I'm having issues with HD audio - if I enable bitstreaming in Kodi 13.1 for TrueHD or DTS-HD, I get no output (onkyo indicates Stereo PCM, but no sound). If I disable only these HD settings, then the HD audio is delivered as SD in the DTS/Dolby format.

- AMD HD Audio driver is up-to-date, no other audio drivers installed
- Windows 10 Sound config shows 5.1 configuration and support for TrueHD/DTS-HD
- I have set output to WASAPI in Kodi and enabled passthrough etc. - has anything changed since the original screen shots in post 1?

Thanks for any help
