Intel Nuc -> HDMI -> Onkyo AV Receiver TX-NR929
Description Of Issue
I have my Roon core on my QNAP NAS.
I have an Intel Nuc connected to my Onkyo AV receiver via HDMI.
If i configure my Nuc Intel® Display Audio WASAPI to Exclusive Mode, I only get sound when playing MQA files. The following screenshots show configuration that can play MQA, but not non-MQA files on Tidal.
if i use the above settings, I get no sound from non-MQA music.
For example, the following screenshot is playing a non-MQA title, and the signal path shows purple, the music bar is moving, but i get no sound at all.
I only get sound from playing non-MQA files if i turn off Exclusive Mode, following which, i get the following signal path (green light).
Any idea why turning on Exclusive Mode would allow sound to come from only MQA files?
If i turn off Exclusive Mode, I am able to get sound from both MQA and non-MQA files.
