Default Re: Call for testers: HDMI pass-through

Here's my update: I bought a GT 430 yesterday, did a swap and now everything works perfect. None of the receiver complaining/sync issues I had with the 240. I've tested bit streaming of TrueHD, DTS-HD HR, and DTS-HD MA - all are perfect. Thanks so much to the people who made this possible!

Testing so far...

GT430, 2.6.37-rc8 kernel custom compiled on Ubuntu 10.04 and using alsa from that kernel, connected to Onkyo TX808 receiver, both TrueHD and DTS-HD work correctly and are recognised by the amp

I have an older G210 and Onkyo TX605, I will try and plumb them in and report back.

Thanks,
Chris

* Graphics: NVIDIA GPU GT 240
* Driver version: 260.19.06
* Kernel version: 2.6.37
* Receiver: Pioneer 1019 AH-K
* ALSA 1.023

I am running a x64 version of Meerkat. Both files work, but the DTS-HD is not always consistent. I can run the True-HD file and the receiver always displays properly. With DTS-HD it will go back and forth between PCM and True-HD or the +4 Dialogue message will appear. Oddly, other times the DTS-HD logo appears right away. I've noticed DTS-HD only works fairly consistently if I open a new terminal between running True-HD and DTS-HD. If you attempt to run both from the same terminal, something gets confused and DTS-HD won't display.

Don't know if you still look for testers, but I can confirm it works with Ubuntu 10.10 x64, kernel 2.6.38rc6, alsa 1.0.24, Denon 1911 and GTS450 card.

Thank you!
I was hoping that user fluffylob would also test on his G210 (it doesn't work for me), but it's good to know that it works on newer cards.

Yes it works perfectly for me as well with aplay.

What are the plans for mplayer / ffmpeg? What about dts-hd ma (the sample worked, but transcoding my own dts hd ma files failed just like you pointed out that it would)?

Best regards,
Peter

Could you be a little more verbose as explained in the first message in this thread?

I am not sure I understand this question: The patches by Anssi were applied.

Or do you mean decoding DTS-HD? Afaik, nobody is currently working on RE'ing it, it may be a major task.

I tried this on my GT 240 and Denon AVR-1909 receiver. Neither sample worked: the receiver indicated it was receiving multichannel PCM but made no sound. Today I installed a passive-cooled Sparkle GT 430 and both work fine: the corresponding lights go on and sound plays.

I couldn't get the fancy .asoundrc config to work, though. Is it working for others? I just removed the variables and entered the device numbers that were correct for my card.

Tested on Ubuntu Maverick with a 2.6.38 kernel from Natty.

Default Re: Call for testers: HDMI pass-through

i've been struggling with this the last few days and am at a loss. i have tried three different fermi based cards that should work, however i am unable to get the dts-hd sample to play correctly.

receiver: pioneer vsx-1020
card: asus gt520, asus gt430, zotac gt430
kernel: 2.6.38-8-generic
alsa: 1.0.24 Compiled on May 23 2011 for kernel 2.6.38-8-generic (SMP)
nvidia: 275.09.07

my issue is that my receiver will flick back and forth between seeing dts-hd and nothing. i'm hoping someone else out there with a pioneer receiver might chime in saying they have a working setup. currently i'm at a loss.

Default Re: Call for testers: HDMI pass-through

I initially tried this test on a ION1 based system with the following setup:

receiver: Yamaha RX-V1065
card: ION1
kernel: 2.6.33-8-RT
alsa: 1.0.24
nvidia: 256.52

I configured my .asoundrc as per post #1.

I noted that when I did run the test I got noise on all channels and my AVR reported 8ch PCM at 192kHz.


I then read that the ION1 doesn't support passthrough. I then built an ION2 base system and tried again with the following setup:

receiver: Yamaha RX-V1065
card: ION2
kernel: 2.6.38-10-generic
alsa: 1.0.24
nvidia: 275.21

Nothing would work until I tried the following:

aplay -D hdmi:CARD=NVidia,DEV=1,AES1=0x06 -c8 -fs16_le -r192000 dts.spdif

Then I got noise on all speakers and my AVR reported 8ch PCM at 192kHz.

The question I have to ask, is that is this actually bitstreaming the audio or is it being sent as LPCM? I'm somewhat confused as to why I get the same result with both GPU's.
