Lol...I ditched Creative years ago. Their forums are constant flamewars and their community people are continually at wit's end. I have no idea how they became so dominant in high end audio. There's too many alternatives now; they're toast if they don't shape up.
And now they're openly threatening to sue the one person who is making a difference for their users?
They need to offer him a job instead, because it seems the entire Creative community is demanding the head of Phil O'Shaughnessy on a platter.
wow..i rarely post, specially when is simply a comment, but i feel i must now.
I've been a creative user for many years, and probably 6 months ago bought what i believe is my last card...further more, i WILL call creative tomorrow and demand my money back, since ive been un able to use their product with vista 64 since i bought the card.
i was reading about this last night they have definitely ****ed themselves here, mind you most boards now come with 8 chan HD Audio cards on board and they seem to do the job most people want, i had to remove my x-fi elite pro from vista as it was a pain in the ass, that and the drivers couldn't do ac3 or dts properly.
Ah I see - some kind of DTS/Dolby problem? I don't use that so that's probably why I've never had a problem. I can't believe how infamous that thread has become in just a day - I wonder if Creative will turn this into a PR stunt, making a massive u-turn and hiring the guy? That would be a lot of publicity for very little cost and would definitely be the sensible thing to do. Wow.
A song in HD audio that exceeds the abilities of the sound card can't be streamed out to a receiver in full quality. So imagine paying for a supposed high quality card for a HTPC, or or a multi-media center but trying to watch a movie in low quality audio on a system that highlights everything.
Makes me glad i got an azunetech card. Though some money goes to creative azunetech makes the drivers *score* using DTS in vista 64 with a few ventrilio problems. This does confirm my last creative card purchase though. RIP creative...you are dead to me
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
