I don't think it's actually available to buy by the public. It's an industry product (part of a package I think) and costs a good few grand.

I was afraid of that. I had no intention of buying it after reading the EAC3to thread, but then I found out that it does work well for DTS stuff. I'm about to jump into Blu Rays here pretty soon (thanks to the LG dual format reader), and I see that many Blu Rays have DTS soundtracks, so I figured I should be ready for it. Not for a few grand though.

I have just discovered that versions of Haali splitter after v1.7.189.11 will not allow playback of HD-DVD .EVO files containing MPEG-4 AVC encoded content

For HD-DVDs and the .EVO files
Haali 1.7.401.3 doesn't play MPEG-4 AVC
Haali 1.7.359.22 doesn't play MPEG-4 AVC
Haali 1.7.189.11 does play MPEG-4 AVC (http://www.anymp4.com/download.php)

These HD-DVDs include
Transformers, Star Trek, Shooter

sarah99, do you suggest enabling the "Force 25FPS in media" as an option... I'm noticing that playback is jittery on certain scenes...

i recommend using coreavc v1.6.0.0 instead of the cyberlink H.264/AVC Decoder.

i have an x2 4800+ and with the cyberlink decoder, it wasn't possible to play an hd-dvd without stuttering. i also tried ffdshow, the sonic cinemaster video decoder and some "h264 standard decoder" (can't remember the name exactly) - the results didn't even vary a lot. ok, the last one was the worst by far, but the amount of stuttering with cyberlink, ffdshow and sonic cinemaster was pretty much the same.

now i just tried out coreavc and it managed to play the file without any stuttering whatsoever - cpu usage at 80-90%.
i just love coreavc... unfortunately, v1.3 (which was at least faster than v1.5 - i didn't compare it to v1.6. though) seems to have problem with h264 on hd-dvds (at least with the movie i tried, i got heavily distorted images), so try getting v1.6 if you experience problems.


but i have to say... the fact that only the sonic cinemaster audio decoder works with those ac3 streams sucks... a lot!
is there a way to at least restrict usage of it to .evo-files only? because the media subtype is the same as with the ac3 streams of .mkv-files i have - with which ac3filter does work.

What would be the best way to get the non-decoded signal out SPDIF into my receiver?
Did you ever get this working? Sounds like you are having the same problems as me. I can actually get Nero8 to output DTS when the source m2ts file has a DTS-HD track - but I dont want to use Nero8 as the player :-(

I could also get DTS audio over SPDIF using the Haali splitter, but it screwed up all my other video playback (picture shearing etc)

I think the issue is at the point where the streams get split - but I am guessing really

Stuttering problem for Bluray

Sh4dow recommended using coreavc v1.6.0.0 instead of the cyberlink H.264/AVC Decoder to resolve a stuttering problem on HD movies, but will this solve the stuttering problem for Bluray? I will have to try it once I get coreavc.

Is anyone else having a slight stuttering problem with Bluray? If so, any suggestions to resolve it?

Yes... I cannot get 24p playback to work smoothly in MPC. I have abandoned my hopes of using it to playback Bluray and HD DVD files and have started using ArcSoft TotalMedia and PowerDVD
