    Universal Utility to test speaker setup? Esp. Mac Mini running XP in VM?

    All -

    I didn't know where to post this, but since I always use RR and ya'll know what's up, it is going here.....I am building my 3rd carpc with an Intel Mac Mini running Parallels or Boot Camp. Sound is working under both using their emulated drivers, but I can't test each speaker or 5.1 sound because I can't find a gui app that will run. I have the Windows audio CP set to 5.1 surround speakers, but of course there is no speaker test utility in that. The Intel Audio Studio and Sigmatel CPs fail because they say they don't support the board installed.....

    Are there any generic utilities out there that will run on most soundcards to test speakers other than just the front two "desktop speakers"?

    Thanks,

    Mark

    No go. Doesn't work on XP, splash just sits there.
