Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Any Windows Media Center experts? Want to disable SPDIF passthrough...
Is there a way to force WMC to play multichannel audio (AC3/DTS) over multichannel PCM (basically the 5.1 speakers) rather than as an SPDIF passthrough? I don't want to go into why, so much, but my life would be much easier if WMC would just decode the Dolby Digital on my Live/Recorded TV and play it over the "speakers" (speakers being a 5.1 multichannel PCM output) rather than pass it out as a digital stream to my receiver.
My output is an ATI Radeon 4550. Going into the sound device setup, it appears I can't disable Dolby Digital as a format...that was my first thought.
