I've setup my 2820 NUC kit, and under supported audio formats in windows 8.1 DTS-HD is not listed. I've installed all the drivers provided in the NUC driver bundle at https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=3782&DwnldID=23418&ProductFamily=Desk... Download Center , and attempted to install the ME driver at https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=23091&keyword=intel+management+engin... Download Center , but I'm still unable to do DTS-HD passthrough. Is there a driver available for the 2820 that allows this?
The product spec at http://downloadmirror.intel.com/23417/eng/DN2820FY_TechProdSpec01.pdf http://downloadmirror.intel.com/23417/eng/DN2820FY_TechProdSpec01.pdf lists DTS-HD as a feature of this kit.
Thanks for any help!
Any update on this? i noticed when installing the latest BIOS (0028) that something on the screen said Intel Management Engine. Does this mean a IME Driver release might be coming soon?
I have also bought nuc 2820 to use it with win 8.1 as my main htpc along with an dts-hd capable onkyo receiver. Since openelec can bitstream hd audio I think it's a shame windows can't. Please give that missing driver so that we can use our nuc proprerly.
May I ask what has been your testing platform/software for DD+ besides Netflix metro app? Some/most applications do not require Protected Audio Path (PAP) for DD+ bitstreaming, and some do internal transcoding to "regular" DD.
Have you tried the latest BIOS version 0032? https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=23813&ProdId=3782&lang=eng&OSVersion... Download Center
Me too . I downloaded and installed it and nothing changed - still no hd-sound.
Feels like we were mislead by Intel. The product description says it supports hd-sound, too bad Intel does not stand behind what it says, and still doesn't take care of this issue.
That's a shame.
Guys, this issue has been reported to our engineering team and they are currently working to get it resolved. I still do not have an estimate time of resolution but you can keep checking this post for updates.
And yes, i too have fallen for this "ideal" mediamachine, but boy am i wrong..
It just won't play Netflix in DD 5.1 (via the Win 8.1 App). Got all the latest Bios/Drivers/Updates installed, but alas, just like all of you in here; no 5.1 output over my HDMi (towards my Marantz 7.1 True HD Receiver). Only Stereo. The DD 5.1 stream stutters 1-2 FPS and finally crashes.
Xbmc and other media players will play 5.1 without any problems, but Netflix won't. I did (a lot of) research and my opinion is that the missing Intel Engine Management Driver for Windows 8.1 (which are available for all the NUC kits, but not this one...) is the culprit.
Thanks Intel! Please get it done ASAP.
Besides that, in Windows 8, all my drivers where up to date. But after the upgrade to windows 8.1 in device management there's now an exclamation mark next to Sm Bus controller. (searched and found i'm not the only one...) Uninstalling, reinstalling drivers won't help. Im using the latest .INF set for the chipset.
HugoXa4, could you try the following drive? The Intel® Trusted Execution Engine (Intel® TXE) driver replaces the Intel ME drivers. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=23415&ProdId=3782&lang=eng&OSVersion... Download Center
