HTC 10 & option: generic driver

hi,
the option "generic driver" doesn't work with HTC 10, no files can be played. Any suggestion for high-res output?
thx, Steve

Now it's playing but no hi-res. Tried all combinations of options for Generic driver including Custom options.

Thanks, now its working through Custom Format. Simple Offload doesn't work but it works when in Custom Format the Offload is the only one selected. Strange. Tried all options - all working. Selected all.
Surprised it's working even higher than 192 Khz but sound is dull so I limited it to 192000. Anyway I use Follow Source Frequency and don't have source higher than 96000.

tried your settings and it worked indeed, thanks. BUT, as Dmitry wrote in another post:
dmitrykos wrote:How to check Hi-Res Audio is available
If you wish to to know whether your device has Hi-Res Audio support just access Audio Hardware -> Frequency section. Hi-Res Audio capable devices will have multiple frequencies listed, Bits field will show 24 or 8.24 or 32 in [out: X] placeholder. Additionally you can tap on a panel with Channels, Bits in Audio Hardware and see the current audio output format. If all audio devices indicate 'closed' during playback then it is a sign of Hi-Res Audio as well.

With your settings, I see one device open (/proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/sub0/hw_params) with the following:

access: RW_INTERLEAVED
format: S24_3LE
subformat: STD
channels: 2
rate: 48000 (48000/1)
period_size: 1920
buffer_size: 3860

It doesn't matter what file I play, even with a 24/196 file I always get this. What confuses me is the rate (48000). Does it play high res or does Newton downsample all to 48000?

Sorry, I am not advanced Android user, I have only one option to trust what Neutron shows. It shows changing rate depending on source file.
Difference in sound also present.
If you're using soundmods or customs there is a big fat chance you don't get Hi-Res.
