So did you have to install additional "stuff" (codecs, whatever) on your HTPC in order get bitstreaming to work? I'm still a little confused as to why my .m2ts file (which has a DTS-HD audio track) won't play natively. My receiver supports DTS-HD as does my HDMI driver (Intel). Well, at least it appears that it does because in my Audio device properties it shows DTS-HD as a supported format. If I play a blu-ray disc using TMT5 I get the DTS-HD track just fine, although maybe TMT5 is doing something special?
As an aside, I'm still not sure I even know WTF bitstreaming means...
EDIT: Ok, so after some googling it looks like bitstreaming just means sending the audio tracks untouched to your receiver so that your receiver can do the decoding. I like this idea, since it means I can - at a glance - tell if the video I'm watching is dolby digital, or whatever, based on my receiver's display. For me, if I go into my HDMI device properties and check the "allow applications to take exclusive control.." checkbox, then any video I playback now shows "Dolby Digital" on my receiver instead of "PCM". So... I think that means I'm bitstreaming??
All that said, my .m2ts movie with DTS-HD still has no audio when I play it back... Hmm.
