    Two soundcards??

    Hi, I have two sound cards(USB Audigy2 and on bord VIA soud). I would like to use VIA on board line-in for sound from Terratec Cinergy 600TV(radio+tv), and for output I would like to use Audigy.

    Is this possible to do with curent version? If not when it will be?

    Thanks,
    Bojan

    just go into the sounds and multimedia section in control pannel and set the audigy as prefered device for sound playback and the via onboard audio as the prefered recording device.

    I'm not sure that the VIA mobo BIOS allows the onboard soundcard to function whilst there is an additional PCI board installed. I might be wrong, but if it is possible then I'm very interested to know how...

    Unless that is something specific to the VIA MB's, you can have multiple Sound Cards in your system.

    As said before, just go to the Start, Settings, control panel, Sounds and Audio Devices. Then make the changes on the AUdio, Voice, and Hardware Tabs. That is exactly what I did, and it works fine.

    I think it is an EPIA mobo quirk. I'm going to double check ASAP, but I was defo under the impression that the onboard audio is disabled automatically if there is an add-in soundcard present. I hope I'm wrong because it would solve my radio reciever problem...

    Add a USB-soundcard then

    I'm interested to know if the audigy 2 NX (USB) can do virtual surround (aex/dts) on audio coming in on the via line-in, as it can't when using the line-in on the card itself (only going in-out the pre-amp and mixer I guess)...

    I was thinking something like this would make a good NAV TTS/CellPhone soundcard:
