Dear All,

I would like to bitstream DTS-HD with foobar2000 through HDMI
I have installed the WASAPI plugin but if I want to play a .dts or .dtshd file I get an unsupported file format error
Then if I install dts plugin as well foobar decodes dts and sends multichannel way through HDMI...

Could you please advise?

Many thanks in advance

But these "HD" audio streams are virtually non-existent without a video accompanying it. And if you're gonna rip audio only anyway from a blu-ray, you may just as well rip to flac.

No matter, there's still a fairly large amount of DTS music around and people who much prefer hardware decoding over software decoding. Also, there's SACD and MLP which can be bitstreamed and the audiophile crowd has started making legal copies of their own precious discs because of disc rot, waiting for a viable solution to play them through audio players. XBMC is getting there, and foobar2000 - having a name as most versatile player - should not stay behind.
