Re: I can't play any .cue files (wav, wav DTS, dca or flac)

Thanks for joining the NUC community.

This problem does not appear to be an issue with the NUC, please try updating NUC BIOS from the link below:

File name: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24326/eng/WYLP... WYLPT10H.86A.0030.EB.EXE

Are you able to play those files without AVR?

Please check the list tested peripherals here:

Re: I can't play any .cue files (wav, wav DTS, dca or flac)

If I make a clean install of windows 7 - fully updated via microsoft update - without Intel's Graphics / HDMI audio drivers - and just use Microsofts generic drivers I can play the files!

By using the generic drives, I can't play HD formats like DTS-HD.

By the way it would not make much sense to play the files without the AVR ;-)

I have downloaded and installed the latest BIOS: from the web site (date 09-19-2014) I think that is the one you refer to?

Units for sound and video:
