    another day of working on this, with no results.

    wish i would havbe gotten a regular ole' m10000. i think the "m" at the end of the south bridge model number on the mII10000 is what is causing all my problems. vt8235 for m10k and vt8235m for mII10k.

    i swear to god i could draw exact replicas of every individual window under sounds & audio devices. this is haunting my brain.

    ugh. i will be sure to post up my solution if i ever figure this out.

    Where in the instructions are you having the trouble? And what exactly is different in the sound options? I figure once you have the newest drivers and change the sound configuration, it should be fine. Show me some screenshots and I can help you out.

    Does this config also work on the VIA MII12000 as well as the MII10k?

    I would like to wire the motherboard to 3 amps. One for the front speakers, one for the rear speakers and one for the sub. If I set the the motherboard to be a 5.1 setup, would I get any output from the rear and centre/sub channels when using winamp (or any other audio program)? Because I don't really want to use it as a 5.1 channel set-up (cinema style), just want to be able to use the faders to control my amps.

    thats what im having problems with right now, on a mII10k board.

    mahe, i have fiddled with this things for many many hours. i have tried your directions to the T. its just a driver issue. everything works out to your instructions, the sound just isnt functioning correctly. the front speakers are almost inaudible they are so quiet.

    im just going to split up my overly-powerful rear channel for the time being. my fader control can be the gain difference between the two channels.

    Maybe it's the amp. I had to flick a few switches on the amp before it worked properly, there were settings for 4ch and 2ch for front and rear speakers. And some other settings too, once I figured out what they did I got it working fine.

    Can you use the 'Vinyl AC'97 Codec Combo Driver', to get 6 channel stero out, instead of 5.1

    I'm not an expert on this subject, but I finally undestand enough to know what I'm doing.

    I think the VIA motherboard only supports 5.1 audio. If you want 6.1 sound, you would either need to purchase a 6.1 sound card, or splice the side speaker signal in with the front signal. Come to think of it, it seems like that's exactly what Creative Labs says to do.

    For 5.1:http://ask.americas.creative.com/SRV...119):obj(4125)

    For 7.1:http://ask.americas.creative.com/SRV...75):obj(26180)

    The 7.1 setup has the same output jacks from the sound card that the 5.1 has. In this setup, it has cables that essentially splice the side and front input into one jack, green.

    - Edit skin to liking.
    - Get compatible phone for mobilephone.net.
    - Facilitate HVAC control.

    @ Maheriano on your original post

    not to nit pick, but you seem to have made it for 4.1 surround not 5 ... other than that great instructions, good job.

    I did, I left the center channel empty because I don't have one. But if you have an amplifier with the plugin for this channel, I did up the instructions so you can simply plug it in and voila. Good eye!

    Awesome, I may be trying this next, as I am redoing my carputer setup with a M10000 mainboard. For those who have done it, how is the sound quality?
