(2014-02-03, 22:34)Simkin84 Wrote: What exactly do i need to set up to use DS player?

It seems like a awful lot of tweaking, filters, xml and what not.. any basic settings i can use? my audio sync are fine with MPC-HC, so it would be nice to get started with DS in XBMC.

Any starting tips?

My hardware are:
Yamaha RX-A2010 AV Receiver
Panasonic VT30 Plasma (24p capable)

Most of my videos are mkv bluray rips 1080p, with DTS/DD and DTS-HD/TrueHD.

Any help would be appreciated :=)

If your new to xbmc dsplayer just give it a try

First delete all previous versions of xbmc

Download and install Notepad ++ use this to edit xml files
Download and install LAV Filters Installer x86/x64
Download and install AV Splitter

Go into Program Files/XBMC/system/players/dsplayer
