Hi all! Q. Has anyone managed to bitstream their audio via HDMI from their graphics card? I'd like an external device to decode all sound from my PC (either an AV receiver or soundbar, both can decode all the common sound formats up to Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA). I received an email from nVidia today to state that my graphics card (nVidia GForce GTX 1060 6GB) only outputs sound in PCM. I've asked nVidia and AMD if any of their GPUs allow audio to be output in bitstream. I'd happily move to AMD if the RX 580 / Vega 56 did allow bitstream or look at a sound card that enabled the same. Thanks for your answers in advance!
When I do tools/options/Bitstreaming and choose DSD, when I play a .dsf file, Jriver refuses to play it and brings up this error box: Playback could not be started using the format 352.8 kHz 64bit 2ch. This format would work: 176.4 kHz 64 bit 2ch Would you like to have your DSP Studio > Output Format settings changes automatically? The only way to prevent this from happening and play tracks is to go back to the Bitstreaming choices and un-check the DSD box, which Jriver(version 23) helpfully suggests is recommended. So now, if the Bitstreaming DSD choice is selected, no dsf file will play; they will only play when it is not chosen. My DAC supports native DSD playback. So when a dsf file plays, it says it is playing at 176.4 kHz. Is this PCM? What would cause these messages? Thank you. [ Edit: I took this problem over to the JRiver forum, so I won't bother anyone here. Thanks for reading and the help. ]
