Hoping someone can shed some light on this annoyance.


On a Win XP system.


I've a X-Fi card (Fatality) running spdif optical (via adapter) to an H/K receiver.

AC3filter is set to spdif passthrough AC3/DTS.


Have the little "Use Digital IO" checked on the Play Control/Advanced screen.


Problem is each time I boot into Windows I get no sound unless I uncheck & recheck the "use digital IO" box", I guess to reinitialize the system to use the spdif out. Then everything works just dandy- DD, DTS, etc.


Tried looking around for info to no avail. Thanks.

Well, solved it!


Known bug with Creative drivers. Beta drivers released this month did the trick:

-----------------------------

Fixes:


* Resolves the issue for systems with 4 GB of RAM.

* Resolves the Digital I/O detection issue when restarting your computer.

------------------------------------
