I have tried the Toslink setup and the 6-ch analog. On both setups, i can successfully test DTS and Dolby Digital (Windows Sound panel) to produce 5.1 output, but both of those formats are encoded and thusly decoded at the receiver (Z5000). The Creative panel does not successfully test ANY format.
I have tried installing under different several different compatibility modes, none seem to work. I'll probably stick with the Audigy 4 until I decide to pony up the green for a real X-Fi card.
I think I know what you are talking about. For me in the creative console I can switch it to 5.1 surround and add eax effects to my home theatre but when testing it won't make a sound individualy on the components.
So basically I use the console to switch between my headphones for vent while allowing my game to run through my home theatre at same time.
So if I'm understanding you correctly using the toslink its my denon receiver giving me 5.1 not the actual card?
It seems like my one question got lost so here it is again...
Can we adjust the fsb:dram ratio on this board or is it always automatically done compared to your fsb, nb, multiplier settings? I ask cause I notice when messing around with the fsb it automatically tries to adjust the memory mhz (im assuming to keep it at an even ratio since I read that supposedly amd works best when even ratios are used for memory , i.e 1:1,2:2,3:3 etc) and for the life of me I cant figure out the exact relationship of these lolEdited by Pavo - 2/19/10 at 3:13pm
