Removal of the partial support is unlikely, as this passthrough stuff is implemented in the open source ALSA driver.

I guess this all but confirms that the 200 series hw (or a majority of those) is somehow buggy in regards to HD passthrough (and hence doesn't work with all receivers) and this is why it is not enabled on windows on those chipsets.

For the record, jyavenard, what is the vendor id in your /proc/asound/NVidia/codec#0 with your new card?
