AudioEngine branch - DO NOT REQUEST BINARY BUILDS
And there are already freeware apps sending decoded dtshd via CoreAudio...
System: XBMC HTPC with HDMI WASAPI & AudioEngine - Denon  AVR-3808CI  - Denon DVD-5900 Universal Player  - Denon DCM-27 CD-Changer
- Sony BDP-S580 Blu-Ray  - X-Box 360  - Android tablet wireless remote - 7.1 Streem/Axiom/Velodyne Surround System
If I have been able to help feel free to add to my reputation +/- below - thanks!

DDDamian where? Well decoded dtshd yeah ... so not bitstreamed. AFAIK we can already provide LPCM up to 7.1.

DDDamian, is there a guide anywhere on how to get AudioEngine into XBMCBuntu? This is now supported right?

Hi Smile

Anyone knows how to install AE + start up xbmc successfully, from the nigthlies?

1. I installed XBMCfreak XBMCbuntu precise , xbmc eden 11 from 24 april started with no problems.

http://www.xbmcfreak.nl/official-announc...ment-10942

I added the nightly builds from this site https://launchpad.net/~nathan-renniewald...mc-nightly

2. sudo add-apt-repository: ppa:nathan-renniewaldock/xbmc-nightly

3. sudo apt-get update

4. sudo apt-get install –reinstall xbmc

The result: Now when i start it up, i come to a XBMCbuntu-login window with 3 options
Openbox=Grey background
XBMC (the screen becomes black, but i come back to the login window again…
XBMCbuntu (i came into XBMCbuntu graphical mode, i try to start xbmc manually from the menu, but nothing happens)

Tips anyone? what did i do wrong Smile

"Not sure why the maintainer of that ppa doesn't disable pulse during compilation, but I compiled my own build with --disable-pulse, and it worked just fine. "

Anyone know of a better repository with --disable-pulse compiled?

Hi!

At first, great contribution! I have been waiting for this feature since beginning of development. Now I'm glad that it has got public.
Thanks for this!

But now my question: Is there already DTS-HD Master and TrueHD support for Intel Sandy Bridge setup? I've got a H55 chipset on a Gigabyte board and I use only the HDMI Out of the mainboard. So, no second graphic adapter.
I've compiled a build from sources. I can stream DTS, Dolby Digital, and everything else which has less channels..
But when I watch a movie with DTS-HD Master audio stream, I just get a white noise out of my speakers!

Is this a known bug? Are there any patches out there? What is the cause for this problem?

Best regards,
Jarek

@Jaroslaw - I have a ASROCK motherboard Z68M-ITX/HT and i3-2100T - I have compiled xbmc from the latest git version and I have a problem with all movies where soundtrack is DTS. AC3 formats works correct. Maybe I have the same problem as you. Mayby Sandy Bridge is unsupported? If I connect a receiver SR-608 DTS works ok, but DTS-HD/DTS-MA with receiver doesn't work, I hear a badly noise.

It's been stated COUNTLESS times that bitstreaming DTS-MA isn't supported unless you have a modern nvidia card.

With all due respect robo989 what utter rubbish - time you did some RESEARCH. Where has that been stated countless times - care to refer me to the posts.

FYI ATI 5,6,and now 7 series all bitstream DTS-MA and TrueHD as do Intel 'i' series chips, certainly not restricted to 'modern' Nvidia cards Confused

Appreciate you may want to compile your own build but why not try the official nightly builds from here (they include AE) http://mirrors.xbmc.org/nightlies/.

And in answer to your question Yes - AFAIK SandyBridge is supported and will bitstream when set-up properly, not really for this thread though - there is a support thread/sticky on the Windows forum - an assumption on my part that Windows is your OS as you don't state which one you run. Hope this helps.

while it is technically true that those cards support bitstreaming you're making the assumption they don't run linux. maybe robo989 was referring to linux, maybe not. maybe jaroslaw is on windows, maybe not. but blanket statements like "yes that card is supported" don't help anyone unless it is true of all cases like it is with nvidia cards. if you want it stated countless times just go look at the linux AE thread: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1119666

LOL I just knew that comment would come back to bite me on the a..e - your absolutely correct, too many assumptions made and your right I immediately assumed Windows (don't use linux, therefore doesn't exist in my world). Apologies to robo989 if that's the case. Time perhaps for me to recognise that this is multi-platform or just to stay within the windows forums Blush

Linux of course, I have never even used Windows version, my apologies for the very forward statement, I believe it has been said a fair few times though.

anyone having problems with AE where after playing music for a extended period of time it fails to play any more tracks and shows the track duration as infiinity until you stop the player and play track again seems like an issues with PAPlayer opening sinks or something

Hi steelman,

I'm using a linux distribution (OpenELEC) which I compiled by myself including the current xbmc sources with ALSA support for AE.
As I said, DTS, DD+ are working, but not the newer formats like DTS-HD Master or Dolby TrueHD..
When I start the movie, my amp shows "Multichannel" and I get a white noise as output out of my speakers. I'm sure, everything is set up properly. And it seems, that bitstreaming of this audio codecs for Sandy or Ivy bridge is not supported by the current linux drivers right now.

If I'm wrong, please help me..

Regards,
Jarek

Sorry Jarek - I made an assumption that you were operating on the Windows platform - see the previous post from robo989 (looks like only newer Nvidia cards work on Linux distros) - sorry can't help.

I have the problem look like:
I have vinylrip wavepack 24bits x 192khz (1 file .wv 2.2GB + 1 file .cue 1.6 KB).
Fist 10 tracks are working OK, but rest 3 tracks are not, noise.
May be the problem is big size of .wv file (2.2 GB)

I have Acer Aspire Revo R3700 Nettop, Intel Atom Dual Core D525B 1.8GHz, 2GB RAM, 500GB HDD, NOOPT, ION 2, HDMI, Linux.
Platform: Linux (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, 3.2.0-25-generic i686).
Reciever: Sony ES5300 7.1.
I compiled XBMC from git (exactly as README.linux without "make install", I have also EDEN stable release installed).
Starting XBMC (12.0-ALPHA3 Git:20120615-e82e22a) by "./xbmc.bin".
NVIDIA current drivers (295.40): no HD sound. After starting XBMC all applications say "busy device".
Downgrade NVIDIA drivers to 290.10 (290.10-0ubuntu2) !!!
DVD & BD movies are working including DD 5.1, DTS-HD MA 5.1, True-HD 7.1.

P.S. Problem is not in big file.
I can play tracks 11, 12, 13 (starting with track 11).
But when I play starting with first track I can play only tracks 1-10 and noise for tracks 11-13.
