Windows 7: Realtek HDMI: HDCP in Vista; not in Win7

Realtek HDMI: HDCP in Vista; not in Win7

I'm dual-booting Vista Ultimate x86 and Win7 x86. Running a Radeon HD4550 with native HDMI through an Onkyo 606 receiver to a Samsung 40A550 LCD.

Setup is exactly the same in Win7 as in Vista: same Catalyst version, latest Realtek HD and HDMI drivers (R214/R213). [updated to R215 drivers on 2/10 - made no difference]

Also running AnyDVD HD on both.

On Vista, Realtek HDMI Output Properties shows HDMI works fine. I'm able to have the 606 decode DTS and Dolby Digital.

On Win7, Realtek HDMI Output Properties says HDCP "not supported" and the 606 is not decoding DTS or Dolby Digital.

Anyone else seeing this?

Perhaps the OS isn't supporting it because of ...

no official W7 drivers?

Well, that's certainly a possibility, but, if so, I'd expect to see a lot more howling from beta users with the same problem. Not supporting HDCP would be a deal killer for most Home Theater users of 7MC.

Because I haven't seen a big hue and cry, I suspect this may be an isolated instance or a setting problem.

Here's a thread from people having the same issues. It looks like some got it resolved but I don't see how...

Thanks. Good thread to watch. Although my HDMI config shows "2 Channel", Realtek sees my 7.1 setup correctly and plays a tone on each speaker. My Onkyo 606 indicates it's receiving a 5.1 signal. However, the receiver shows "Multich" when playing a DTS or Dolby Digital source. Truth be told, it "sounds" ok to me - it's just annoying that it displays differently than it does in Vista.

Must be nice! I've got the same card as you and I only have "2 channel and no DTS or DD'. Matter of fact, I don't have the sample rates you show either!

How in the world did you get those options? I'm running the 32bit Catalyst drivers from ATI's site and the Realtek HDMI 2.14 drivers. No luck. Do you show the Realtek icon in the taskbar?

Btw, I'm live in the same area (around Atlanta). Maybe it's something in the air?

I'm running the Catalyst drivers off the Gigabyte install CD (8.531.1 RC4?) on both the Vista and Win7 partitions, but the most recent Realtek HD and HDMI drivers. Read somewhere that it's important to install the Realtek HD driver first, and then the HDMI driver, which is what I did.

Realtek HD Audio Manager looks the same in both Vista and Win7: 7.1 speaker config (and the speaker test works). I have a Realtek icon in the taskbar - you have to click on the "i" button on the Audio Manager screen to choose to show the taskbar icon.

One difference I've noticed : Realtek HDMI Output Properties in Vista shows under Controller Information - "2-ATI HDMI Audio", while under Win7, it just says "ATI HDMI Audio". The driver versions show the same for both: 6.0.1.5766. Don't know what significance this might have.

We could blame it on the Atlanta pollen, but we're a month away from that.

I've got the asus eah4550. Maybe I could try the version you run. Also I've looked under the "I" and don't see the realtek icon. I'll try uninstalling the catalyst drivers shortly and reinstalling the hd hmdi driver 2.14. Is there another hd piece of software u need to add from realtek? I don't have the software you show in the last screenshot.

There sure is. You need to install both the Realtek Vista HD driver (latest version 2.15) AND then the Realtek ATI HDMI Audio Device driver (latest version 2.13) in that order. The HD install is not complete without BOTH and you won't get the screen I showed above, or the Realtek icon without the first.

This may be the root of your problem. Try that before changing your Catalyst version.
