Originally posted by Tom M That was a great thread that died out 3 weeks ago. With the more recent XP release hopefully we can get some more good feedback. I'm ready to take the plunge but don't want to be a beta tester.
I agree that as a customer you should not be a beta tester. Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™ve been testing XP and new hardware for almost three weeks to insure we have stable and functional hardware/software before offering XP as an option on our DC RAD HTPCs. Iâ€™m very pleased with the progress made so far.
___I see a few problems w/ XP that no one seems to discuss. Auto switching drivers for CD/MP3 audio from the M-Audio cards is one, a hit in terms of fast execution of SW from the time you click the mouse, and various reg entries that are not the same as they were under Win98 SE/Millennium. These are the same problems found under Windows 2000 although the display issues w/ the latest DirectX and latest players has cured that problem. If you know of any others, please post. I am installing Win XP as well but only after a discussion of these problems before the first light off of the boxes â€¦

What ever are you on about? Details, I need details.
Actually, I didnâ€™t think there was a problem because Iâ€™m having perfect audio switching with the Delta cards in WinXP and using the posted M Audio WDM drivers. Of course there is no DTS CD audio pass-thru and 24/96 audio is down-sampled to 24/48 because of the KMixer/SRC.
