i just applied the cms update and didnt bother twith the dts crap
SBLive Value CT4780 Audigy Driver install tips
When installing choose custom and DO NOT install:
2. Speaker calibration
3. Mixer (by not installing this, the windows 1 will work automatically from the button in the Mediasource player)
4. speaker settings
To get the Surround Mixer back, use the software you where using previously. Do a custom install and install ONLY the mixer.
Works like a champ.
i love to hear
"works perfectly" and stuff i feel satisfied lol. i don't know anything about coding drivers, i barely even know java lol so dont think i did lots of work here lol. i just put scattered info together thats all
for those using sblive, if you want the control panel addition you must edit the YourCPLConfig.txt file to correct the path there for the CTPanel.exe :
you must change it from:
Well, at least that's the case on my sblive-equipped pc.
thanks to Pimpsta and the host of the files...
works perfectly on my system (WinXP sp2).
My soundcard was an Audigy2.
thanks for the tips!
also, for those who are getting the eax console errors on your audigy2 (maybe audigy or sblive), do not install the mediasource or dts neo6 update. i get errors if i did install those 2 updates. without those 2 updates, i do not get the eax console error.
i think something about the mediasource or dts neo6 update screws up the eax console. so stick with the mediasource on the cd for now.
REDPANDAROON : this free upgrade must have really made you happy to inspire your first post after 7 months registered, lol.
rofl, he is just like me, i joined DH to get the audigy 2 drivers working on my audigy 1. then made a small readme. and i saw hmm this place isn't bad and just kept coming and coming lol. now im a gold member and news poster
I will be going offline for about an hr. for Driver updates tonight. I will keep the site up till Fri. night. If the Iso is still needed after that let me know.
i think it is bonehead, as long as you can. it all depends on how much traffic you see. i'll leave the judgement to you
Yah that's what I was thinking but, weekends I tend to beat the crap outa my comp. I burn movies etc. + my wife is mad cuz internet is slow (anything makes her mad)
all your choice just give us a warning here
So what about Live?
Patched driver works perfectly well, but are there any suggestions about what to do with EQ, EAX Console and Speaker Settings? They refuse to work even with patch...
Re: So what about Live?
what updates did you install?
in what order?
try re-installing the CMS patch.
Re: Re: So what about Live?
no updates at all, just the soft from original (I mean patched original) CD...
and after that I applied an EQ patch mentioned above.
Hmm, kinda off-topic, but I think I could host those pictures for the guide. I've only got 50mb space (or so they say, there's no absolute limit :evil and I dont have any bandwidth limitations So email me if you're interested, Im not too good at reading PM's..
Re: Re: Re: So what about Live?
you're probably the only person who has not applied the driver updates, lol.
My recommendation is a complete uninstall via control panel, then go into safe mode and use Driver Cleaner (selecting creative audio).
If you don't know what Driver Cleaner is, it's available on this site for download.
I may have missed what card you are using to apply the drivers, what is it.
After the clean install, you need to follow the install guide exactly. It's relatively simple so I assume yours isnt working properly because of your card itself or you forgot something simple, like not booting to safe mode to apply the patch.
I've got an Audigy 2 Platinum. Is there really much of a difference when installing these drivers? Like lower CPU usage, better sound? Or am I just better off leaving my defacto Creative drivers installed (latest version of course) alone?
Same card here.... I really wanted to get the eq patch working but my raid drvrs or something is preventing my safe mode.... anyways everything else works like a charm....oh yea 'cept still havin a prob with the dvd-audio player not recognizing my samsung combo....
that's really what I need since I love my dvd-audio discs........ Low-bit MP3's are Crap and hurt my ears!!!!
--In other words... Everythings working great 'cept 1 or2 2 minor probs on my end Thanks again!
Sorry if this has been asked. Does the stereo x 2 feature work on an Audigy 2 oem? If so I will update.
