Where on Microsoft's site? I checked the MSDN subscriber downloads section and the open-access areas and all I see is SP1. Is it still technically in beta?

I 2nd Brian's post. Installed in earlier today on my main WS and it seems to work fine. Plan to try it and the AC3 on our HTPC after wiping out the W98 later this weekend.

I doubt you'll have AC-3 until Creative updates their drivers to support it under Win2k.

Drat, I got to 103333k and my computer crashed. Downloading again. I will post whether or not I have AC-3 in WinDVD with my SB live as soon as the update is complete. Give me 10 mins.

OK,


Downloaded, installed, tested, no difference.


I am running a Live 5.1 with 5.1 analogue outs and I still get sounds coming form the wrong speakers in WinDVD. PowerDVD works fine if selected for SPDIF output, even though I am using analogue output. WinDVD won't let me select SPDIF, only 6 channel(5.1).


I will try the SPDIF output later, but I don't hold out much hope.

Well, with no tweaks or DVD Genie or anything all I get is Dolby Prologic. As a matter of fact, the S/pdif is still greyed out in WinDVD. I'll try some tweaking, who knows.

I wouldn't worry about whether or not this is a legit download. MS always farms out high-volume downloads to conxion.

I think Creative Labs has temporarily taken their newsserver off line. Every 3rd or 4th post was how they dropped the ball on their sound card drivers.
