    Lerandell itís exactly the setup am working on, but Iím afraid my 1,2 Ghz. Processor wonít be powerful enough, I might get a new main-board.

    Gork if i get a main-board supporting 8.1, will I then be able to get 4 stereo channels and a SUB output?


    Does anybody know if there is a main-board 17X17 cm. supporting 8.1 soundÖ.?

    I like to be able to adjust the volume for the SUB output separately.

    No, check XCard and TVedia specs and setups. You can feed video output back, so that it plays full-screen on VGA screen in addition to A/V outs, but it's not required. I don't know if it's possible to stick 2 XCards in carputer for 3 different outputs (main screen / audio card + 2 sets of A/V outs), ask TVedia guys

    bugiman:

    NO! The driver is only for EMU10K1 soundcards.. IE Soundblaster LIVE series. These cards have a maximum of 5.1 (6 channel) output. Nothing except a Soundblaster Live series card will work with the referenced driver... I don't believe anyone ever put one of these chipsets on a mainboard. (In fairness, there are some professional EMU10k1 cards made by E-Mu but I assume if you have one of those, you know what you're doing)

    Now, if there is a similar type of soundcard driver for whatever board you get, then that's another matter.

    I have heard that the EMU10K1 (and emu10k2) and Nvidia's older nforce audio are about the only cards with a hardware (DSP-based) mixer on them. Any of the cheap mainboard via or ac97 based cards or onboard sound chips actually do all the stereo upmix to 4/5/6/7/8.1 in software, so there's no reason why a driver that does what you guys want could not be developed -- only that it has not been developed yet. For what it's worth, if you run a multichannel setup off of one of these cheap soundcards, you'll be dedicating a good amount of cpu time to doing an upmix in software...

    hey there bugiman,
    I have a test system already running and it is working. I am using the buddy software. I have:
    2 sound cards - one onboard and one pci.
    2 video cards - one agp and one pci
    2 keyboards - one ps2 and one usb
    2 mice - one ps2 and one usb
    I have centrafuse running on it and it supports multiple app sessions. I have had it playing a DVD on one of the systems and MP3's, navigation, web, weather up on the other side.
    it is a 900 MHz with 512mb ram. I am fighting an issue where it will work for a few days but then flakes out and the second system quits working. not sure whats up with that. Could be the old hardware I am using to test with.
