    Hold on peeps before you "upgrade" to directx 9. I use an older Radeon (7200) & an Audiophile 24/96 & i am experiencing chronic audio dropout when using Theatertek.
    Something to do with directx 9 programming... accordingly the bods at TT are working on a patch & they recommend sticking with 8.1 for the time being.
    I've also had problems with Reclock as well, i think i'll start another thread on that.
    Cheers
    Tim

    I now stick with the old adage

    If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    I never update my drivers any more until I encounter a problem or I definately need to.

    Sinzer,
    The HCPC'ers tenet is: if it ain't broke keep on messing about with it until it's completely knackered & you have to re-install....amen:smashin:

    I use an audiophile 2496 and I have stuck to TT1.2.
    The machine is stable as a rock and thats the way its going to stay.

    The only bit I monkey with is the Dscaling duties which is great fun but slightly expensive (3 capture cards , 1 Russ Andrews silencer, soon 2 RGB to s-video convertors , 1 12 foot s-video cable...soon it would have been cheaper going with the H3d in the first place)
