I just setup a new NUC7i5BNH as a Roon Endpoint to feed multichannel over HDMI to my Casablanca pre/pro. Everything seemed great until I tried to play tracks at 192/24 resolution. Roon was showing as truncating the word size from 24 to 16 bits. I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out what I had configured incorrectly until I found this thread:
I want to give a shout out to @john from Support for finding this; it definitely saved me a lot of time and aggravation. It seems that the latest Intel HDMI drivers cannot output 192/24 so Roon has to truncate the word length.
Some of the suggestions include installing an older HDMI Display Audio Driver but there are reports of instability with this work-around.
My question is: would installing ROCK on this device allow me to run this NUC as an endpoint and is the HDMI Audio Driver included with ROCK able to handle 192/24 and multi-channel?
