    windows 8 7.1 problems

    Hiya Robert

    i have got windows 8 pro x64 and the latest 2.30 pax drivers installed, i have found despite telling the driver to run at 7.1, every program i use i.e mediaplayer, mediasource player from creative, cyberlink powerdvd all seem to run in 2.1 mode. don't understand why. when i do a speaker test with the sound panel all 7 speakers work within the test, but when playing music/videos i only get 2.1

    Plus I am getting a Audio Enhancement Problem "Windows has detected that audio enhancements for the following device are causing problems: Speakers (Creative SB X-Fi) Would you like to disable driver enhancements for this device?" really don't understand why this happening. it all works 100% fine in windows 7 x64

    Many thanks for your help

    Cheers. Turbo :)

    I did. I have also noticed that after disabling "digital driver signature" the enhancement error vanishes, but to keep it from showing i have to disable the driver signature everytime i reboot or switch my computer on or it will automatically enable itself. even with digital driver sig disabled i cannot get all 7.1 speakers to work, only 2.1. Regardless what i do with CMSS-3D I cannot get music/video's to play as 7.1
