Hello Prophete, we tried to make as many third party components compatible as possible, but do to the sheer quantity of these third party components we cannot always guarantee compatibility.
However, these are our recommendations for this issue:
*Please check the HDMI cable you are using is 1.4a, since this is the only one that support audio and video.
*Try installing the latest audio driver available:
Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 Download Center
*plug a headset directly to the NUC and check if you are able to get sound from it.
* connect the NUC directly to the HD Sony LED TV and check if the sound is working?
* install the latest BIOS version available for your Download Center
Hi Sylvia and thank you for reply.
I have sound that not the real problem.
if you check here : http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=146911
at section 1 they say :
"To support HD Audio (TrueHD & DTS-HD MA) on Windows the Intel Management Engine Interface driver must be installed, it's this driver that provides the HDCP DRM necessary for the HD Audio formats to works. If this driver is not installed then the HD formats will be missing from the Supported Formats tab. In order to verify you have the Intel Management Engine Interface driver installed, follow the relevant step atBlu-Ray* Disc Playback with Intel HD Graphics FAQ"
but everything is ok on my configuration.
at section 3, the problem it's the NUC give me a Max Number of Channels of 2 instead of 8.
So the NUC can play stero, Dolby Digital, DTS and Dolby Digital Plus on my AVR, that works (after 2 days of working with intel drivers). But can't play DTS-MA and Dolby Digital TrueHD
I have the lastest video/audio drivers.
I have the lastest BIOS
My AVR is 1.4 HDMI 3D
My cables are 1.4 HDMI
With my ATI 5450 that works fine. it's just a driver problem, not a hardware problem...
I read on internet that NVIDIA and ATI drivers support the EDID override and that's the solution for a lot of people here that have problems with Video / audio over AVR. If intel add to the drivers the possibility to do EDID override, I can force the number of channel to 8 and everythink will works fine ! so please, be professionnal and add this feature to your drivers and you will have a lot of NUC return just because you don't want to add this to your drivers...
provo44 : the AVR must be between the NUC and the TV because if I connect the NUC to my TV, I will never have my HD sound...
Ok, finally I found a way to force 8 channel and now I have video HD + audio HD .
I found a program that hack the registry and create EDID entries used by the intel HD.
I just hope one day Intel will make better drivers because hacking registry is not a think that every user can do easily ...
>>AVR must be between the NUC and the TV,<<
Thanks you have opened up a whole new world for me.
Question: Even though I have spent 3 years of my adult life in England I still have trouble understanding speech on British TV. Would a AVR help. TIA
an AVR is the best sound you can have at home . with a 5.1 or 7.1 system, the sound is like theater .
the AVR pass the video signal to the TV and get the sound signal to reproduce it. On actual AVR, you have generaly 4 HDMI input and 1 HDMI output so you let the TV on the same "ext. source" and you change the AVR input to get image and sound from the devices plugged into the AVR. It's very better than an classic "sound bar" plugged directly to the tv .
I use a similar setup, NUC (D54250WYB) > AVR (Denon AVR-4308A) > LCD (Philips
40PFL9704) all connected via HDMI 1.4 cable (NUC bios and drivers are all up to
date). Via moninfo I applied an EDID override. In the Windows 8.1 registry for the display device I now see two EDID override keys. Key 0 for the LCD and key 1 for the AVR.
In the audio device the HD audio formats are still not listed. My AVR is however capable of decoding HD audio formats like DTS-HD-MA. Seems like the EDID override is not completely picked up by the Intel HD Graphics 5000.
can you please share which tool you used to get the HD audio formats available
or maybe post you Windows registry settings so that I can compare the registry keys?
