I recently had to replace my motherboard the Intel D945GPM and format my hard drive due to an electrical failure in my house. The problem I am experiencing is that my audio is no longer directly controlled through Intel Audio Studio like it was before. I think it has something to do with having downloaded the newer version of the IDT 92XX driver from Intel. IAS is treating my 5.1 theatre as PCM Stereo under its digital output format and I'm only getting L & R readouts on my consoles digital input display. I am using an optical cable and if I'm playing music it seems my speakers can't handle all the audio levels anymore and if I open my cd drive or try to use a heavy app on my computer the audio chops up similiar to how you hear helicopter blades. Specifically I am using XP service pack 2 and a Panasonic SA-HT05 home theatre system. Before this IAS worked like a dream and I was in gamging heave, please help me solve this.
