Get skype if you can. I let you know when I be back that evening.
Robert, I have Skype on my Touchpad. I've never used it, but it is the same as my username here.
ok We can do this tomorrow? I add you tonight but Tomorrow be better in afternoon?
Yes, that would be fine. When you skype, is that audio? Or A/V?
Robert, many thanks for helping me get the drivers installed. I will post the URL for enabling / disabling Driver Signing after this post. This post gets me to 15. You can't include an external link until you hit that magic number of 15 posts.
To any others having a problem installing: My problem was that Driver Signing was enabled. (I thought that you could disable during install when it says that the drivers aren't signed)
Apparently you can disable this at start up, but you can also enable and disable this option via the the command line (CMD). It will stay disabled (or enabled) until you go back into CMD and undo it. To see how this is done, you can check here: http://www.itechtalk.com/thread7030.html It worked for me.
Static noise for me...
after installing thr driver and 2 restarts no sound!!!
EDIT.: ok when i turn my volume full on i hear the sound but its not good frequenz....
Hi Want me help you on team viewer get installed right way you can added me on team viewer robertmc8 thanks.
Ok now we must only find a Time to see us . I am from germany
I'm -5 GTM if that helps.
Um, Excuse my nubness lol But where are the default locations for the Bass.ini and other ini files.
Unless I was supposed to edit these before install of the suite perhaps?
Thanks in advance.
Yes or you could reedited in system 32 or wow64 folder search each ini in common folder then to find it.
Thanks found them in the System32 & SysWoW64 directories. Do I need to edit files in both directories?
I do not have a common directory either, unless you're referencing the above folders as the "common" directory. (I do have a "common files" directory though
I apologize few more questions here lol
In the mentioned folders in addition to the Bass.ini, treble.ini, and mids.ini there are also surroundsound.ini files one for each type of channel setup 7.1-2.1.
1. Do I or should edit these files as well or are the settings from the Bass/treble/mid are inheritited into the additional surroundsound.ini files?
2. In the Bass.ini,mids.ini, and treble.ini files the only "FrequencySeparation" configuration key is the low one. "Configuration\LowFrequencySeparation,40Hz~20KHz" Which is odd, you would think each ini file would have it's respective band separation. Low in Bass, Midrange for Mids , and High for Treble.
Conforming to what you mentioned in the readme file you included.
Do I need to add these keys to each respective fiile?
Sorry for all the questions just trying to understand the proper syntax and method of how these files are accessed for correct functionality.
Just for informational purposes, I'm very comfortable editing configuration files in fact I run Gentoo x86_64 on this Box the majority of the time.
So I'm quite comfortable if not more comfortable setting up things through files.
Unfortunately there is no "manpage" for what we're doing here lol
hope that helps.
Thank you for the new drivers Robert and everyone else for their support!
They work like a charm on Windows 8 now!
P.S.: Any of you guys using Spotify?
My first 2 attempts to install under Windows 8 (x64) failed without any error message. After rebooting in Test Mode I was able to install the unsigned drivers without problem. However, in order for any audio to work I now have to boot into Test Mode every time I start the PC. If I boot normally there is no sound from the device. I think this is a problem with Windows 8 not wanting to load unsigned drivers at startup. Has anyone else had this problem?
Hm, maybe try this:
Go to the Creative's Systemcontrolpanel, then navigate to where it says something called "Headphone's detection". Mark "Mute Speakers automaticly".
IF in any case the sounds work for you now save this state by switching to sleep mode and back again.
Let me now if that worked for you (it did work for me).
If not, check the windows audio controll panel and make sure your soundcard is set as default. Let some music play and see if you see the volume bars go up and down there.
Thanks Kenion that worked perfectly. Very odd setting to have to switch but that did the trick.
Sorry Wrong forum
1. I have problem with instaling suite 2.50. System doesn't recognize the card as x-fi.
2. second problem, after reset on the original driver, console is reset to factory defaults (ctxfireg.exe deactivated. This oeration helped but this is not a solution)
