    Sorry for the off topic post but thanks for sharing this following bit of info Lsdmeasap, I was wondering why some of my posts (mainly templates in code tags) had stuff missing, but it reappears only to me when I hit edit.

    It's because of the > < characters anytime you use either of those in this forum they must not touch any other letters or it messes things up and or sometimes blanks of much of the post.
    Edit: If sound distortion/crackling is still an issue I whole heartedly recommend the new(ish) ASUS Xonar DS 7.1. It's a PCI soundcard and at a reasonable price (35). It's the best sounding card I've ever heard for that kind of money. The 5.1 (my mate doesn't have a 7.1 setup) was simply superb. While watching a DVD of Supernatural, I jumped out of my seat several times. Great audio fidelity in movies, and great for digital audio. CD and MP3 etc sometimes tends to sound flat and cold, but with the Xonar, you get a rich warm sound with loads of depth.

    Ya it threw me off several times when I first joined here as I am used to IPB boards so I was clueless as to why things were being messed up. If you need to use the <> in tags, try the [] instead often they work just fine

    Just wondering so I can look further into this for you as I can test on any OS here.

    I do not see this option on Vista anywhere, so I need to know what image you are looking at so I can know what to look for. If it is just some random image, or even one in a manual, it could be older interface and not an actual setting available anymore.

    Gigabyte logo will be there, even if you download direct from Realtek so that is nothing to worry about.

    *EDIT*

    I found an image of what you mean, looks to me like they removed that option or integrated it into something else possibly?

    See here is mine in Vista (R2.29 Drivers) and the option is not there >>

    RealTek Downloaded Drivers



    Looks to be a 2007 post, so like I said you may also have been looking at a older interface >>



    5.1 Sound Problem in Vista :( - Neowin Forums


    So I am not sure what to suggest or say other then maybe please email RealTek and ask them if this setting should be visible for you. Here is their contact page >>
    Realtek

    Let us know what they have to say
    Can somebody please tell me which version of the driver is the one in the second picture? I believe the upper one is R2.29 but which one is the lower one?

    Because in the driver I have, if i select 5.1, it gives me "side" speaker and not "rear". Plus I dont have speaker fill option.

    So, which version is in second picture?

    Thanks in advance,

    The second version seems to be an older driver, maybe LSD will give some details.

    What you state is exactly my problem too. You have to follow my work around or as suggested by KayossZero, enable dolby pro-logic-II. This will 'fill' up (to some extent) the sound in the other speakers. They appear to have removed the speaker fill option as it caused crackling and other problems in Vista/W7.

    Ok, but I need to know what version that other driver in the lower pic is, so I can actually set my surround speaker as "rear" and not "side" like in the newer driver.

    Set it to 8 channel and then set the rear. The side speakers can be 'empty'.

    Nope, unless you have a 7.1 game/dvd, which is usually rare.

    ah, thats the thing!

    You know how to configure realtek so it uses the surround speaker as "rear"? In the older driver, it seems as if it HAS detected as rear.

    Im running windows 7 by the way.

    As I mentioned, selecting 8ch and then setting the rear, seems to give me better sound, than selecting 5.1 and setting rear as sides. It does not allow selecting as rear if you opt for 5.1 speaker system. But I am running xp sp3.
