post #2791 of 5498
awww, my ACM stopped working recently. stopped passing audio through - still get sound when directly connected

anyone have experience with Creative RMA if you never registered the product? I'm not sure how much I care. I used to use the ACM microphone, but bought a ModMic 4.0. I have the keyboard for audio level control. I honestly just liked it as a show piece - didn't find much use out of it, so not sure if it's worth the hassle of RMA

I haven't been looking at the BIOS codes anymore. If there is a problem I will look at the Q code indicator on the motherboard but other than that I recently switched back to the non-detailed ROG logo POST screen instead of the detailed POST screen.

Yep, that is the one I always look at. A0 = good. When I first boot a bunch of numbers come up quick and I can't possible identify them all. It was the same way on my Maximus V Extreme as well.

There shouldn't be too many, maybe 3-4 individual codes tops.. If there are more than that than your computer is in bad shape haha tongue.gif

But seriously, there should only be a couple codes.. 99 is graphics card related, a couple of the b codes are USB device related... But these are telling you EXACTLY what is happening. I suggest restarting a couple times and note down which codes are flashing and looking those up. It would be a great waste of time and money if you replace your card and the problem ends up persisting. I replaced countless PC parts to root out an issue I had been having for years... Finally fixed it by replacing my mobo.

I think I was exaggerating a bit actually. I get about 3-4 individual codes. The fact that I found people having the problem on other forums leads me to believe it is nothing specifically with my hardware but a broader issue.

That sure sounds like mobo issue/quirk. Other people having the issue means it's not likely specific to any one mobo but a general setting that they all share.

Also to anyone considering the Phoebus, for the love of god stay away! lol I went through 3 and they all had major issues... My RMA'd one is sitting in a box in the closet since I could never sell it lol

I have a problem with my ZxR.
I just got it today, and connected it to my 5.1 home cinema (via Toslink) and it worked great.
Then I connected my new headphones and they didn't work. That was before I learned that I need to flip the switch in the software to headphones. And since then it works awesome with headphones.
Later I decided to switch back to my 5.1 home cinema. So I flipped the switch to 5.1. Nothing, no sound :/
What is the problem? I didn't change any settings, just connected the headphones and flipped the switch.

Edit:
Figured out most of the problems, headphone mode works only with "no encoder" while home cinema only works in Dolby or DTS.
But the new problem I have is that the sound breaks up every 3-4 seconds for about half a second when playing in Dolby and a lot more often when in DTS.
Is there a solution to this?

Yeah, I've never heard anyone have anything good to say about the Phoebus card.
