    SD seems to be REALLY smart with this board too. Didn't have to change any of the configuration. As a matter of fact, it might be too smart. I like to disable navigation so I can play around with config while moving. SD decided not to play along. It was disabled, but the GPS still worked! Couldn't believe it.

    The sound using the onboard realtek ACL833......I would put it up against anything Creative puts out. AND I have my subwoofer back! Woohoo! XM works fine and again, SD was smart enough to know where it was hooked up. Even had record capabilities! Up until the icar incident that is. lol

    Now trying to get the front ports working so I can install HD Visteon and possibly HQCT.

    Also noteworthy....entire system is running fine on a single M2-ATX supply! I have a second, but I haven't installed it yet.

    Edit: Can't say what I am using it for, but the mic portion of the board has noise and echo cancelation built in. It's "ok". Not perfect.
    Something I noticed is that if i leave SD in the music queue with the icar skin, it will eventually crash. If I flip back to home screen and shuffle music, no problems. Damn shame, cause I was running this skin for some time with no problems, and about a week ago, more crashes than I wanna count. I'll switch skins and see if the crashing persists.

    switching didnt work for me. I had to rename my sd folders and reload. Hope you have better luck. Sucks because I really liked that skin.
    My opinion is my own.

    Ok, here is the picture I threatened to post before. lol
    How's this for onboard audio control? And that's just the play.

    On a serious note now..... in response to your request..... see picture below

    Edit: I was asked awhile back why I liked this board so much. It's older audio, older video, etc. Well, here is why I think it is the perfect board.
    Everything you need is built in. No real need for addons.

    8 USB ports
    4 serial ports with one being 14 pin (OBDII, HD Radio, DTR Amp control)
    8 Audio ports where 4 of them can be made "Line In".
    mini-pci slot that frees up one internal USB port for wireless
    Dual Video (not that I would use it)
    Ability to "dual stream" audio (again, nothing I would use)

    The board runs 50% faster than my XPS M170 Laptop, runs the newer core duo processors, but uses low enough power that the entire system can run on 1 M2-ATX supply.

    Downside? The board is too "smart". Nothing to play with. No overclocking, no modifying stuff, it's an industrial board that is the closest I have found to "foolproof".
