Windows 7: DOLBY Passthrough problems with WMC

DOLBY Passthrough problems with WMC

I have a mix of SD/HD with and without AC3/AAC encoding, so I need to have a MC set-up that caters for all.

The problem I have is with WMC/WMP as it does not pass AC3/AAC to my Pioneer Home Cienma system via OPTICAL DIGITAL - the display does NOT change to DTS or DOLBY B as with XBMC, so I know it's not my media files.

I have AC3filter installed, along with "CoreAVC 1.95 full edition", "HAALI Media Splitter" and "DivX Tech Preview: MKV on Windows 7"

Tried the Preferred DirectShow Filters Tool for Windows 7 tool and selected CoreAVC (full version bought and paid for) over Microsoft but still no difference in MC.

So I installed ffdshow and selected it instaed of CoreAVC and/or Microsoft. Still no AC3/AAC passed through.

Even disabled AC3/AAC inside ffdshow to see if it was being blocked and still no difference. Tried disabling MIXER in ffdshow but no change.

Now taken ffdshow off, ans installed Shark007's Win7Codecs pack but that doesn't seem to help.

My little Archos TV+ still plays the same files and passes AC3 to my receiver, so I'm assuming that it is definitely WMC not working correctly in my set-up.

I'm not adverse to re-installing Windows 7 if you think starting afresh might help ??

If anyone has any further suggestions that helps me to stick with WMC, please let me know.

, thanks for you reply.

The only real question is how to get DOLBY working with WMC.

Should I have ffdshow installed and not AC3filter, or what combination to others have ??

Im probably not the person to ask because I dont even use WMC or WMP, etc. Have you tried searching google for the answer? Im sure someone uses emc and has dolby working but I dont know.

Let us know how its going and if you find anything

It Works for me

Hi

Not sure from your description about the exact problem but I have pass through working fine in my setup.

In the past I've normally had problems with the sound card setup; have you checked that on installing windows 7, the sound card settings remained the same?

For info: I used PowerDVD 7 Ultra and have installed no other codecs.

Yep, all fine as DOLBY/DTS is passed through to my receiver when using XBMC. MPCHC works OK as well, just not WMC

It's just WMC 7 that doesn't work correctly.

Strangely, when doing a SPEAKER SET UP TEST, my receiver shows DOLBY D, so I am now assumnig I am missing some software, such as FFDSHOW ??


If I could get WMC working as I want it, I can then start investigating YAMMM or MEDIABROWSER.
