None of the Blu-Ray rips in an MKV container(no change to data other than stripping out unwanted items) with PCM soundtracks, such as CRANK or Ratatouille will play audio in MPC. I have confirmed these same files will play correctly in Mediaportal.

This sample play fine, test at r2288.
MKVSplitter successfully determines 8ch PCM and file play with sound.

Since its a PCM stream it'll usually not try to use any filter and connect directly to the renderer. However, this will cause issues if the hardware does not support the specific format of the PCM stream. MPC-HC does not have a filter to correct this, but in theory ffdshow with enabled RAW audio should be able to (untested).

I finally got it to work consitantly...thanks for the pointers. After getting graphedit to work in Windows 7 I saw that the default renderer was not my sound card. I'm not sure what MPC was trying to connect to but it was not compatible. I simply selected my sound card in the renderer options and it worked like a charm. Simple fix, but without graphedit I couldn't figure out where the stream was running into problems.

So is this considered as a bug or bad configuration from the user side?

Its a bug. Works fine with LAVFSplitter since today.
