    Windows HDMI downsamples high res audio

    can't remember where i read this, but i seem to recall that windows HDMI output is only 24/48 max even if you've set it to be 24/192 because windows automatically downsamples everything. is that true? it basically renders playing 24/192 flac from HTPC useless
