I also am still in love with Windows Media center which is also not support by windows 10.
I love the montego card because it has has Dolby digital live which in my opinion does an excellent job with my mp3 music. I have tried using my MB sound options to send stereo to my Denon 1910 receiver which then encodes with pro logic for my 5.1 speaker set up but doesnt sound as good to me.
I know the general sentiment on the internet is that DDL is old school but I cant just seem to get pro logic to sound comparable for mp3s.
Any ideas or suggestions.
A windows 7 / 8 x64 driver will still work in windows 10 for that hardware. Other people have gotten it to work.
Getting windows media center going may be more challenging.
If this is a limited use PC that you're only using for HTPC duties, why not just keep at windows 7?
