I have an Auzentech Hometheatre HD board installed in my HTPC [Win7 x64 Home Premium] with an Onkyo TX-SR875 receiver. Everything works brilliantly EXCEPT I cannot get the board to output either DTS-HD, DTA-MA or Dolby True HD. Dolby 5.1, DTS etc all work fine.

The video is fine, no issues with handshaking.

I was on the phone with Onkyo and worked through all options to no avail, for example the received shows that is receiving DTS 5.1 when it should be receiving DTS HD. Yes, I know that DTS HD is often 5.1. The receiver will show when it receives a HD audio stream of any type.

I have used the MONINFO program to created INF files and installed them on the HTPC. It hasnt made any difference though.

I am using Powerdvd9 with the options as suggested by Auzentech:
- Speakers: Use HDMI. Output mode: Non decoded hi def to external device.
- Windows: Set speakers as default playback device. No other HDMI devices are enables.
- Auzen console: Encoder is turned off. HDMI tab is set to play audio from speakers through HDMI.

I am running the latest Powerdvd9 patch and also the latest TotalMediaTheatre patch. The amp shows that is receiving DTS 5.1 [not DTS HD as it should]. Both TMT and PDVD are set to use HDMI out. TMT is setup to use DTS encoding rather than use the standard sound track. PDVD is set to output as non decoded. When running Ice Age 2, PDVD shows that it is outputting DTS HD. The HDMI cable being used is the one that came with the Auzen board, I have also tried another cable that I have.

Am I missing something?

Anyone with experience with this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The sound board is an Auzentech Hometheater HD and is HDCP compliant, in fact the whole chain has been tested and OK'd as HDCP compliant by the Cyberlink Advisor.

Auzentech have just replied to me and suggest that a firmware upgrade to the board may solve the problem
