Well, if I set nvmixer to "5.1 Speakers (Dolby Digital)" my reciever reacts and shows "Dolby Digital".. If I set it to anything else my reciever displays "Pro Logic".
(The reciever is set to "Auto" so it detects what comes in.)
So the reciever detects AC3.
Same with DVD's (from my standalone player).
In the movies menu's the reciever shows "Pro Logic".
When the movie starts it either shows "Dolby Digital" or "DTS".
So there is no upmixing going on. (In my case)
Oh, and I have sound in my center.
Right........My Logitech z 680's do the same, It shows the DD logo if its a 5.1 DD Live, and if its just 5.1, I can choose how the reciever outputs the source, ie stereo, stereo 2x, PL Movie, PL music..........
Prologic means the receiver upmixes the input to create 5.1 sourround sound audio.
Try this experiment, open NV Mixer, set it to 5.1 DD Live, then open foobar, play a song an mp3, depending on your settings you should the VU meters plays outputing the appropriate channels,
left rear, left, center, sub, right, right rear.
If hw acceleration is off, and you play an mp3 you should only see the VU meters for left and right, if DD live setting is on, then you should only hear your front left and right channels...........
Ohwell.. so the conclusion is:
If you have Soundstorm and a "real" home cinema reciever, digitally connected, and are using Dolby Digital 5.1 in the nvMixer, there's no need for any extra steps (or foobar plugins).
If you are using desktop speakers (like creative or logitech) that usually are a pos with their own strange cables/connectors then I guess there's a need for plugins like this.
rrrriiiiggghhhtttt..........again look at my posts and you'll see I am using logitech z-680's(not any ordinary set of computer speakers, it can do Dolby Digital/Prologic II, DTS and is THX certified).......and no strange cables or connections.......and I am using an over the counter optical cable.........go to http://www.nforcershq.com/ and the people there will tell you soundstorm doesn't not upmix your sound......your reciever is upmixing not to mention soundstorm only does 5.1 sound according to the specs, the fact that your brother can get 7.1 + 2 extra speakers means its his home theater reciever is upmixing.....please there is no need to resort to childish behaviour........
Secondly AC3 doesnt mean 6 channels, examine a dvd and you know that often there is 2 channel ac3 steam as well..........
Skipyrich this is a great plugin btw........I love the how you can control what how much of the front, is heard in the rear, and vice versa.........excellent work..........
