Passthrough hack ok but helicopter noise when seeking

Postby 2much » Fri Apr 08, 2011 12:00 pm

Hello,

The Passthrough hack works great with ac3 & DTS. My receiver is a Logitech Z-5500. I have 2 issues but, from what I was able to understand, they are unsolvable until Apple implements ac3 & DTS. I thought I would mention them all the same as a note of interest, but if there is a fix I would be interested.

1/ If I seek (fast-forward or rewind) with QuickTime I get the helicopter noise. If I pause then seek, no noise.

2/ If I seek with Front Row; no helicopter noise only a slight click when I press play to stop the seeking.

I guess both of these issues are down to the way both applications handle seeking. Still it's good to know, if you've got the same problem as me just use Front Row to be able to seek with minimum annoyance.

As stated, the passthrough that Perian implements is a hack. We cannot do anything better unless Apple decides to grace us with an actual API to accomplish the task. What you mentioned are side effects of the hack.
