    NEW SoundBlaster X-Fi Vista 2.15.002

    Just thought i'd post this up. Hopefully these will sort a few issues:

    Known issues:

    This driver does not support the following:
    Decoding of Dolby® Digital and DTS™ signals
    DVD-Audio
    DirectSound®-based EAX games
    6.1 speaker mode

    Just been released and are available on the Creative site.

    So....just like the last driver?
    To be fair, I've noticed incremental changes within the Audio Console itself, but nothing of notable interest yet...

    This makes it sound that with that driver they are talking about, all the software works in Vista unless you use "6.1 Mode".

    In other words, if you use 2.1 or maybe even 4.1, all the stuff works. I dunno if thats true or not, but thats how it sounds from that article.

    If so, that would be good enough for me - cause I only use 2.1.

    With the Audigy drivers "6.1 known issues" also meant 4.1, 5.1 and 7.1... quite a remarkable company.

    how about 2.1?

    I ask because I only use 2.1, and this is about the only thing holding me back from getting Vista 64.

    It defaults back to 2.1 when I select any of the others... usefully. Audigy 4 Pro for me.
