I own an Intel Core i3 with an H55M-Mainboard. Buy a H55M they said ... it has native bitstream support for HDAudio they said....Wink

Well everything is working nearly fine. MP3 and AC3/DTS Sound is working fine - AE detects the HDMI and the Receiver correctly.
What does not work are the HD Formats DTS HD Master / True HD

here are some additional Infos:

Let me know if you need more infos Smile

Last but not least: Awesome work! Thank you! Where's your 'donate' Button?

Not sure who told you any of that, the only way of getting DTSMA decoded is through an nVidia graphics chipset bitstreamed to receiver for decoding, currently, on Linux at least.

Hey been testing AE since before the merge. works great! found a small bug i think is releated to AE. when i'm a music playlist after a few hours of playing xbmc fails to play a song. the track duruation will show an infiiniy symbol and current time will be 0:00 if i stop the music then play again all is good for a few more hours. it seems like its having trouble opening up something for audo maybe a sink?

It's working! May be it will be usefull for anyone.
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) !!!
Music is working including vinylrip wavepack 24bits x 192khz.
DVD & BD movies are working including DD 5.1, DTS-HD MA 5.1, True-HD 7.1.

P.S. I find one problem:
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)?

Greetings. Exciting times for XBMC!

I compiled a couple weeks ago for testing the AE branch, and all movies played DTS and AC3 just fine. However, when attempting to play DTS-MA or TruHD, I got nothing but screeching static. As of today I did a rebuild and dropped down to 290.10 version nvidia drivers and now I don't get any sound at all for DTS-MA and TruHD (but still play DTS and AC3 sources just fine). My receiver registers as Stereo (default when no audio is detected).

D'oh! Too many things, not paying attention.

My graphics chip is an integrated GeForce 9300 on an ASUS P5N7A-VM motherboard.

After reading some more, I may be out of luck but will upgrade to 1.0.25 and try again.

indeed. i'm pretty sure the 9300 doesn't support hd audio. the g210 is hit and miss. your best bet might be to get an asus 430.

Downgrade NVIDIA drivers to 290.10 (290.10-0ubuntu2) !!!

So with 295.40 XBMC put a resource lock on the audio device, but when you downgraded your NVIDIA drivers it fixed this? Or are you saying it only fixed the no HD audio part? I'm having this issue with launching emulators with RCB through XBMC. Emulators have no sound unless XBMC is not running when I launch the emulator. Same is true for Firefox.

Update:

So I downgraded to nvidia-current_290.10-0ubuntu2. AudioEngine still won't share the output device with anything else. Sure, HD audio is cool and all but at the cost of not being able to use XBMC to launch external applications...not a good trade; but why even have to trade in the first place? There should be a way to force XBMC to release the output device and the to grab it again when returning. Maybe an xbmcsend command or something so launcher add-ons like RCB and advanced launcher can still work. Something like have xbmc release audio dev --> launch external app --> play --> close app --> grab audio dev again when returning to xbmc.

It's more detail my tests:
First I had NVIDIA 295.40.
1. "speeker-test" is working (I hear noise sound)
2. start XBMC (I had no HD sound), exit XBMC
3. "speeker-test" is not working (audio device is busy), I need reboot system
Then I downgraded to NVIDIA 290.10.
1. "speeker-test" is working (I hear noise sound)
2. start XBMC (I had HD sound), exit XBMC
3. "speeker-test" is working (I hear noise sound)
I can say nothing about launching something through XBMC. I have no launchable plugins in XBMC.
In EDEN stable release I used QMM player for HD music (24x192) in XBMC, but now XBMC play HD music natively.

Hi,

the option to choose a custom audio device was removed. How is it possible to
specify which alsa-device to use? I have a alias device configured in the .asoundrc
file because i make heavily use of alsa features like duplicating to a second sound-card
and mixing channels. The first soundcard is a 5.1 the second is 2.1. Why is it only
possible to specify the hardwaredevices in the gui of xbmc?

thanks

olli

I have the same with DVB-S. But it also could be reproduced with material streamed over slow network. Like playing a 720p video on youtube over slow wi-fi link. The stream would pause, start buffering and never recover.

So I got myself an nvidia card and started setting up my new 12.04 box. I'm trying to get my alsa upgraded to .25 as required by AE but cant seem to get it right. I tried using this guide : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundT...edure#Step but the drivers still seem to stay on 1.0.24 while library and utilities upgraded to 1.0.25 just fine.

Any suggestions?

Thank you sir. I saw that but as it's not the "package" way of ubuntu I was hesitant. Will give it a bash.

Cheers!
