I've been testing several Windows 7 builds and the most current 7229 x64 and still experience a strange problem I have not yet figured out. Any experts out there with a suggestion or some information would be highly appriciated as the problem is driving me nuts!
I have my HP Pavilion dv5 Notebook PC connected to a Samsung 40" LCD TV (HDMi) and sound with an optical TOSlink to a Pioneer multichannel reciever through a Creative X-Fi Surrround 5.1 USB sound card (Creative beta Windows 7 driver
The audio seems perfectly fine until I try playback a multichannel (Dolby Digital or DTS) source like a DVD. The audio seems too hasty and payback at a (increasingly) faster rate than the movie. This is increasingly noticable during playback and after a minute the voice sounds way before the lips move.
With a stereo source or SPDIF passthrough switched off there are no sync problem.
I find the problem strange as the same cable are used for both, but only with SPDIF passthrough enabled the problem occures.
I would highly appriciate any feedback to my issue. I've tested all to my knowledge. Thank you in advance
