Re: Interesting thread indeed

I can speak to the motherboards since I have one in one of my test machines. Certain older realtek HD-audio drivers for XP hapen to work bit perfect. However, none of the current ones do neither are the Realtek drivers for Vista.

The specific machine has an AMD motherboard from Shuttle with an ULI Southbridge that supports HD audio. This was an early HD audio solutuion for AMD CPUs. The codec is a Realtek ALC880 and the S/PDIF worked bit perfect for me when I ran XP on it.

However, I also managed to get the Realtek in my Acer TM 8200 to work bit perfect on the optical output with that old driver version under XP. Demonstrating that little oddity is probably the only reason I can still dual boot that machine.
