    I have spent some time working with vista and SD. Some sound cards like to play nice and some do not. I have reported this to our engineers and they are currently working on a solution that should fix this. Until then I understand the importance of volume control. I'm a control freak. I just added THIS to the store. For $25 it works great with SD. I will report back as soon as I hear more on vista control.

    Yea I think the on board sound on my AOpen by realtek is one of the sound cards that didn't agree with Vista. I installed the latest Realtek driver and software to get the line-in passthourgh to work.

    I assume that the problem is Vista volume control virtualization which SD needs to work around (such as described here, for example, http://blogs.msdn.com/larryosterman/...ows-vista.aspx)

    However, there is a quick solution that should work (read - I haven't tried it, but think it will work): right click on the SD shortcut and click on the compatibility tab, make SD run in XP SP2 compatibility mode which turns off various (including volume) virtualization.

    Mark, I tried running SD in XP Compatibility mode per your suggestion, and it did not fix any issues for me, and in fact, it made things worse for running XM. Running in this mode caused me to have no soundcard choices at all in my Sat. Radio settings. I tried entering the Sat Radio module anyway, and I got stuck in an error message loop that locked me from doing anything other than hitting ok on the error message (message was "Incompatible sound device for Sat. Radio" or something of this nature). I had to force a shutdown of my pc to get out of the loop.

    So anyway, if anyone tries SD in XP Compatibilty mode, MAKE SURE to check your Sat. Radio settings... if there are no sound card choices at all, DON'T try to open the Sat. Radio module, or you'll be forced to reboot. If you don't use Sat. Radio in SD, then this may be a satisfactory workaround for volume control.

    I hope this bug is addressed soon.

    Got the same results. We are working on a solution. This requires that we rewrite the whole sound control scheme for streetdeck. There is no ETA on the solution.

    XP compatibility mode in Vista works for me

    Wow.
    I was trying everything to get the volume to work and running SD under XP SP2 compatibility finally made the volume work.
    Fixed my problem!

    Fixed volume, broke Navi.

    Got way too excited.
    Volume works, but Navigation is now broke when trying to run SD in XP SP2 compatibility. Back to square one.

    There are several issues I encountered with SD in Vista while trying to run under XP compatibility mode. It may fix the volume issue, but it "breaks" several other functions (incl. Nav, XM, and some button finctionalities). I would not recommend running Streetdeck in XP compatibility mode for any reason.
