    Programs with Dolby Headphone support?

    Hi it is possible to use the AC3 decoder of PowerDVD including the Dolby Headphone filter with other media-players. I'm currently using it with Zoomplayer. Setting up customized media playback you should be able to use the Cyberlink filters for Dolby Digital audio tracks. What I can't get to...

    Dolby Heaphone DSP plugin

    Fall Season Premiers... What are you hooked on?

    Quote: Originally Posted by wakeride74 Rome looked pretty good, how is it?? Is the CGI over-done?? It's certainly very well made but so far I'm not exactly hooked. The main problem (IMHO) is that there are no characters I'd care about. Let's hope that will change. Most other HBO...

    Any Discworld fans here?

    Discworld? Sure, those books are awesome. I think I have all the novels that are available as paperback. Last one I read was Monstrous Regiment. Quite a different tone in that book. While I certainly enjoyed it I'd still like to return to somewhat less serious subjects. Regarding favorite...

    Question for Head-Fiers who are not native English speakers

    Quote: Originally Posted by viator122 I have noticed that most of our non-native English speakers here on Head-Fi speak (well, type) English very well and don't seem to have a problem communicating. I imagine this is because, as I understand it, in many parts of Europe and Asia, English...

    Need advice on how to "clean up" pictures?

    I've never really used paths in PS but I'd imagine that it's a ton of work to create a mask using paths. In a realatively simple picture such as the example it may be feasable but in most cases I'd guess it would take forever to get it right. Am I overlooking something here?

    headfi pic display errors

    I also have the problem with them pictures And for quite some time now. I'm using Firefox with a whole bunch of extensions and I have no idea what causes this mess. A complete reload (Ctr.+F5) seems to re-randomize the icons and can therefore help a little.

    What movie did you just see?

    "Alexandra's Project" Just watched this one and I doubt that many here have ever heard about it so I thought I'd just give a short comment on it. Or rather a strong recommendation as it was the best movie I've seen in a while. It's very surprising, evil...

    Binaural Microphone

    Are you sure that Skype actually transmitts a stereo signal? Seems overkill to me if it did. And if it was only mono your idea wouldn't work as intended. As I understood it you want everyone to use a binaural mice placed someplace in front of him. Each persons position relative to the mice...

    Dolby Headphone

    I don't think the filter in ffdShow is what you're looking for espeacially since it does not work as well as DH does (at least for me). What you need is a virtualizer that increases the soundstage of stereo-files. Foobar should already come with a simple surround plugin.

    pc remote

    I use a setup very similar to the one proposed by damitamit. A cheap and simple USB-dongle infrared receiver, one of those dirt-cheap preprogrammed remotes that can control tons of devices and Girder. That way I can control my TV and the PC with the same remote. And I gotta say that the...

    New Movie: Shaun of the Dead

    IMHO "Shaun of the Dead" was nice and had it's moments but it wasn't all that great. Off the top of my head I couldn't think of any really funny situations. Actually I found "Dawn of the Dead" to be a better movie overall and even have a moment that was way funnier than anything in Shaun. OTOH I...

    the most real racing game ever!!!!!

    Hm, that video really looked great. Gotta try the game when it comes out. Up until now I've been more interested in rally-sims. Just tried Richard Burns Rally and it seems quite good but with a very steep learning-curve. Anybody here got an idea whether force-feedback hardware would help to get...
