Topic: HDSP 9632 - White noise when playing back DVD in Windows Media player
I'm doing a new build for someone at the moment loosely based around a spec i've done before but i'm seeing a strange issue this time.
The spec has this in it:
2 x XEON X5550 2.6 Cpus
24 GB Supermicro memory
1 x 512mb 9400gt GFX card
1050W Enermax Revolution psu
1x 500GB seagate
4 x 1TB samsung spinpoint
Vista Ultimate 64bit
I have a HDSP 9632 in the system.
When I play a dvd through windows media player all I get is static white noise. The volume control in media player has no effect on the sound but I can adjust the level of noise in the rme controll panel.
It's not distorted audio. It's pure noise that plays as long as the dvd video does regardless of noise being generated by the motion on the screen.
I've swapped in another RME card (same model) that i've been using personally for about 8 months and it replicates the issue.
I've resoftwared twice the second time with no other devices in the system and no change.
If I put a creative card in the dvd audio plays fine.
If I run Power dvd it's fine
If I run VLC it's fine
If I play back any audio through Windows media player it's fine.
It's just dvd audio and it's driving me nuts, and I can't ship the system to the client to I know what's going on with it.
I'm guessing either driver and hardware or codec in windows media player and something else?
Can anyone offer up any ideas?
