Release Notes for ATI HDMI Audio Driver
Copyright (c) AMD Inc. All rights reserved.
Driver Version : 5.0.40001.10
Build Date : 11/13/2007
- Added capabilitiy to dynamically detected if an HDMI playback device is connected before enabling the
HDMI audio device. Without dynamic capability, the driver always enabled the HDMI audio device which
meant that if the ATI HDMI audio device is the default palyback device then the system will use that device
even when no HDMI playback device is connected resulting in the user not hearing anything.
- When the drivers are installed, the ATI HDMI audio device will become the preferred audio device.
This results in the system using the ATI HDMI audio device to playback audio whenever the device is
enabled in the system.
