Thanks for your answer wich makes perfect sense to me, at least.Of course, during my initial test and setups, and conforming myself to the indications of your site, I paid attention to the position of the wave slider in the window mixer, making sure it was at its max. Technically, I don't think any other application, out of mediaportal, has access to the soundcard. Now the details you were kind enough to provide would explain why I can't hear any objective difference between mediaportal's plain player, mediaportal's player with Asio4All and mediaportal configured to use Foobar with kernel streaming plugin. I guess I finally have bitperfect playback after all (my holly Graal), wich should not be surprising because the whole thing sounds astounding, and even better than my expensive so-callled audiophile CD-Player. Thanks to you, it's finally a dream comes true, and I can have fast access to .ape, .flac and wavepack files, just using a remote, with a sound that is pure blissness. Bye-bye CD boxes, shelves, and dust...Your driver really made my musical life such an enjoyable experience, I can't thank you enough for that.Take careMy setup, if anyone cares : Win XP (32)Mediaportal (using the stock Bass player) (Free)Windows Mediacenter Remote (25 Euros)GForce visualisation plugin (Free demo version)Terratec Aureon 5.1 PCI (18 Euros)Dogbert's CMIDriver-1.2.0-bin-x86 (Free)Optical wire (20 Euros)Derek Shek II Non OS DAC (check "Sigtone" on Ebay, this is a bomb) (238 Euros)Pathos Classic One MKII hybrid ampBC Acoustique Act 02 speakers
I'm using Vista, not XP ... so, can I get this working using this ?
Is the card you have recommended for use with this driver ?
When using Vista Media Centre I assume its still not possible to get a bit perfect output even using these drivers ?
I bought this card for its SPDIF input to connect my Playstation 2 and maybe xbox 360 later
i cant get Dolby Prologic 2 to decode on all channels from SPDIF, also an option to make regular stereo input to play on all channels would be nice
This may be a stupid question but does this driver support the CMI8770 found in the HT striker?
I know its not listed
Also, why no svn on the google code page?
QuoteThis may be a stupid question but does this driver support the CMI8770 found in the HT striker?The chip is almost identical to the 8768 with the exception of some register which enables the dolby encoder in the official driver, so yes. You'll lose the dolby real-time encoder though.
QuoteI know its not listedit *is* listed on the "supported devices" page.
QuoteAlso, why no svn on the google code page?Too lazy to set it up... Besides, I'm the only developer so there isn't really a necessity for having a repo.
as mentioned in the FAQ, your device is incompatible with the driver.
Any recommendations for an alternative for me?

The adapter requires manually changing the sample rate to match the playback material which is tedious.

First, the Audio Control control panel shows only (Stereo 2.0) available channels.
Second, the MPU401 is not working (MPU401 Address: 0000)
