    need help configuring a 4-way setup using xonar

    hello,

    i upgraded my carpc's soundcard to asus xonar deluxe hdav 1.3

    i'm having a problem routing the virtual audio cable stream back into console/audiomulch..

    do i need any special plugins for the VAC to show up as an ASIO input ?

    let me explain, so far i have configured winamp/foobar to play through virtual cable 1, then i opened up audio mulch and chose to use the ASIO driver of my xonar. i can't seem to figur out how do i set the VAC 1 as an input at the head of the tree..

    please help.

    Your on the right track...
    You don't need anything special for VAC, BUT you must enable the input with ASIO (ASIO4All)...basically, it needs to be switched ON for it to show up as an input device...
    Make sure the 'power light' is on (you only need the input enabled)
    (BTW, this is with VAC not installed...for reference only!)



    Make sure you Reset Audio in Mulch after every change...
    Then the VAC input should be showing up in your input drop down list...
    (again, VAC isn't installed in this pic)



    Once VAC is setup as your only input device, your SoundIN contraption IS your VAC input...

    Notice you can have TWELVE seperate input devices! Make sure your in the SoundIN column if your using SoundIN as your line in...

    Firmware? Hmmm...what changes did they make with the firmware?

    To eliminate the channel cross-talk, you need to use one of the Vista drivers...don't worry, they work in XP as well, except you'll loose the line-in/mic-in if I remember correctly (I use the onboard audio for this).
    I can't remember which version exactly...I THINK 1731. Try those and retest...

    Noob question... what good is a "Virtual Audio Cable" ?
    Is it something like "What U Hear" thing for SoundBlaster?

    So that you can have multiple sound inputs going out at the same time to the output/amp?

    In better words.. You can listen to MP3s/radio/CD's while the navigation voice is active ?

    It's a pass-thru audio device...instead of the music (or any audio) going to the sound card, it goes to VAC instead...
    Then your able to process the audio before sending it to the sound card.

    the problem remains..

    i tried many kinds of drivers and no luck..

    the only vista driver that could run on my xp machine is the oldest and its the 17.44

    i also tried diffrent kinds of xp drivers and still came up with nothing.

    (i removed the old drivers completly before i installed the new ones..)

    maybe its an xp problem ? will the problem go a way if i'll change to vista ?

    could you please check for the exact driver you installed.. did you install the driver completly with all the addons that comes with it ?

    thanks

    All the XP drivers will cross talk...I have no idea about the latest drivers though.
    The driver I'm using is the one dated 6/1/2007 in the device manager.

    HDAV drivers?? That's probably why your having a problem.
    You want the D2/PM drivers, not the HDAV drivers...I doubt there is much difference with them, if any...
    Try the 1731 RC01 version...

    The problem is with the drivers, not the OS...you'd get the same thing with Vista...
