Andy,

Install this filter to play APE audio files, it works with the DirectShow music playback engine.

Wes, briliant, i'll give it a go when i get back home from work!

edit - it works!! :D

Any idea why AC3 disables SPDIF passthrough so processor cannot decode raw signal? :?

Thanks for your help.

Ok, managed to get passthrough to stick in AC3 filter, no sound is passed out though so i am giving up and going back to trusty zoomplayer, ahh welcome back old friend!!

Cannot put up with crappy PC generated AC3/DTS, vocals are terrible...even my Audyssey Sound Equalizer standalone sticks its tongue out :shock:

Andy,


Do you have a hardware list of your computer, motherboard, sound card if it is not built-in to the motherboard. Screen shots of your Zoom player audio setup that works would be helpful. You will eventually want to use the built-in player because xLobby version 3 will allow you to tie lighting events, bookmarks, movie ratings, etc into the player easily, providing a powerful link to other elements inside xLobby.

Wes, v3 sounds better and better...i will post a concise list and screen shots of zoomplayer and what AC3 is doing or not!! under xlobby. I have spent hours and hours trying to solve this problem.

I am hoping when i build my new media pc in next few months for Bluray and yes HD DVD i will avoid any problems i am having with current machine.

edit. here you go...

ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe motherboard
Digital Audio Labs Card Deluxe sound card
P4 3.2 running on XP

My Zoomplayer settings that do proper passthrough of sound...

AC3 to Reclock = perfect passthrough of sound decoded by Arcam for Dolby Digital and DTS

Final Graph is for Reclock which is ultimate aim as it cures stutter in the film
