  1. hi

    i have a GB 790 fxt with this sound card, and have a good sound, i have plugged a HT with an optical cable, but when i put the audio manager in 5.1 digital dolby (only in digital output), the sound (mp3, blu ray, dvd, games)skips randomly like 0.5 sec, every 3-4 secs, which makes an awful expierence

    i have the latest drivers (2.40) and my OS is xp

    but when i put 6ch or stereo everything is fine, but the quality is so much inferior compared with digital, without mention that i can not notice almost any surround effect

    please help

    Is XP updated to SP3, and are all the hardware and critical updates installed? What antivirus/anti malware software are you running?
