Problems with SBLive 5.1 in Longhorn Beta

  Brad33 19:27 05 Apr 2003

I am havving difficulty getting my SBLive 5.1 working in Windows Longhorn (Beta edition). The drivers that come with longhorn only offer 2 channel sound, but installing the latest windows xp drivers does allow 4 channel sound, but when Dolby Digital 5.1 channel sound is played or emulated (using dolby pro logic) the sound is all stuttery and crackles a lot. This didn't happen in xp with the same set of drivers. Is there a way around getting 5.1 sound to work properly in longhorn, or even any beta drivers to do this?

The reason "This didn't happen in xp with the same set of drivers" is because those drivers were meant for XP not longhorn, and I very much doubt that you will be able to find any drivers for a "Beta OS" the whole idea of a "Beta version" is to find out how stable the platform is and to help discover any compatability issues.

to change the subject slightly when did longhorn go Beta?

and how do i go about getting a copy?
