    i'll give it a try and report back..

    well... it's a no go again..

    i couldn't install the D2X drivers (the driver did not recognize my HDAV as an D2X..)

    i tryed the STX drivers and still nothing.

    the only driver that showed any progress is the HDAV first vista 64 bit driver. after i installed it i saw a change in asio4all (the digital input had gone..) which is pretty similar to what you said (that once it works you lose the mic input..) but i still had the channel crosstalk (bleeding..)

    need help. what other options do i have ?

    are you sure its not a xp/vista issue ?

    I'm sure it's not OS related, because I've ran both...and both needed this one driver to work properly.
    Instead of running setup.exe for the drivers, try manually installing the D2 drivers from the Device Manager...manually point to the driver folder for it to search...and if THAT doesn't work, point directly to the inf for the driver file, then a list of supported devices should show up. Then pick the D2 card from the list...

    I assume your HDAV card is PCI-e?

    well..

    i tried to swap drivers the other way (the INI way..) and i actually can install those drivers i couldn't before but that too didn't work..

    belive it or not, up until now - i never checked to see if there is any sound in the other analog outputs beside the front ones. well i don't. i get no sound from all the 6 analog channel on the slave card. (as it turnsout the problem is more than all the channels bleed into each other..)

    what else can i do ? (the D2X vista drivers worked but there is no diffrence..

    could it be an asio4all problem ? how do i test if the card actually sends any sound through all 8 channels (just to see if its an asio problem or a hardware problem..)

    It defaults to 2 channel mode on installation...you need to switch it to 7.1 with the Xonar control panel...

    got some updates..

    after having problems installing the vista drivers on my xp machine i decided to swap dll's and sys files between the drivers prior to the installation.

    i have tried swapping the "cmasiop.dll" files (which called "hdavasiop.dll..) etc.

    i can hear sound on all 8 channels. the cross-talk changed a bit - i can't hear channels 3-8 through channels 1,2 (which is good)

    i can hear channels 1,2,7,8 through channels 5,6 (surprisingly i don't hear channels 3 and 4...

    i think i'm on the right track but i can't figure out what else i should swap..


    i have been thinking - whats with asio4all and the original drivers ? why does it needs them ? if so, what driver files asio4all uses (so i can swap them..)

    thanks

    You can make Windows accept any driver you wish...you know how to manually install drivers, right??
    Mixing and matching dll's is only going to cause problems...

    You need to manually search for the inf. Make sure you manually choose the driver in the option, make sure you choose 'have disk', then point to the RC01 driver (MAYBE RC02) for the D2 that I told you about, uncheck show compatible hardware and manually select the D2 driver...it will install and it will work.
    If it doesn't, maybe you can find the driver written for your card BASED off the RC01 driver?

    ASIO drivers are low latency driver that by-passes the Windows mixer kernel. You want to use them for AudioMulch! Make sure you enable ASIO support in AudioMulch and use ASIO drivers in the driver type box...
    You'll likely have channel issues if you don't.

    You COULD try the ASIO drivers that came on the Xonar CD, as your only using 1 card, it should work properly...

    well... it works !!!

    after 10 hours of tinkering with diffrent drivers. i have found that the HDAV rc02 is the way to go..

    the problem was completly solved when i changed the original foobar asio driver (so that the feed to the vac will be ASIO only..

    now that i look at it backwards it was really simple (funny how that is..)

    enough playing. now to my next 2 problems..

    1. the HQCT has some kind of compatibility problem - once xp had boot-up, i run the RRHQCT software, the program finds the HQCT but fails to control it and it seams stuck. if i take the power molex out of the HQCT and then put it back in - the HQCT works like a charm for 1 minute or so and then it goes into the "stuck" mode again.. --> anyone encountred this problem before, could this be a driver issue ?, i thought maybe its an IRQ problem..

    2. the hqct plays its sound through a 4 pin connector. where do i farward the signal to, does any frontend can control asio so it stops the sound once i switch to another function ?

    thanks alot for all your help so far, it is very appriciated !!

    I spent many, MANY hours getting mine to work as well...but it's worth it. I knew it was one of the RC drivers...I must of been wrong with the RC01's.
    Have you tried ASIO4All? It'll give ASIO 'support' to all your hardware...

    hey,

    new problem, i don't know if it's a car audio proble, but here it is anyway.

    i'm working with asio4all using console (controling onboard realtek and a xonar hdav)

    how do i get RR to "open" the the LINE-IN / MIC channels once there is an incoming phone call or that the HQCT starts working and how do i get it to close the channels once they stop so it won't affect the sound quality.

    thanks
