So I have a very surprising problem with my Celeron N2930 based HTPC, using Netflix, Win 8.1, Metro App.
Setup: HTPC via HDMI to Samsung 5.1 Receiver
In some movies (not all of them, which is weird), selecting the 5.1 Audio screws the Video playblack, slowing it to 1-2 FPS, and no Audio!
In some other movies, selecting the 5.1 Audio works just fine. no issues whatsoever.
I have used the Intel Update tool and have updated everything. It did not fix it.
Hoping to get help here.
- SOLVED -
I finally solved this weird issue and I hope that this can somehow be helpful to someone.
Intel: Your update utility software did not work well for me. It seemed like it was going through the update correctly, but it did not install properly.
Fix: What I ended up doing was digging on intel's website and downloading the drivers manually, which ultimately solved everything!
