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
if want you can use my xml files they have been working for me just fine

First delete all previous versions of xbmc

Download latest xbmc dsplayer build from first page
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

Open Copy & Replace

Then make sure you setup Windows HDMI audio

Thank you so much.

If i delete xbmc, will all my custom menus, movies and such be gone?

And with your xml files, will my receiver be encoding the audio?
