I Used this guide to get VDPAU running great with hdmi audio
big bunnys colors seem to have even improved
The only issue i have is when I switch sources
The HDMI is running to My Sony STRDG-820 amp as well is My Satellite and Server PC (running Vista and 3 1TB HD’s)
Then I have a HDMI running from the sony amp into the SONY Bravia KDL-52w4100 (a Tv which I hate by the way I had the Phillips and it was 40 times better)
When I switch sources on the amp say from XBMC -> SAT then Back to XBMC I get no picture I know the media center is on bc I can hear the menu working (not anymore since I’m getting audio over HDMI but when it was analog I could hear it) so I power it down and reboot and it comes back up it is really annoying.
