    Dolby Digital Live- It is on the new LGA775 boards and is supposed to do real time encoding of sound into Dolby Digital streams for sending to the spdif output.
    Anyone know if it works with WMVHD disks?

    I'm not sure. But be warned as not all the boards have it. The Asus definitely does though.

    It was the Asus I was thinking about.
    I'm just curious if the "DD Live" works as well or better than Soundstorm.

    I have the same problem. I'm trying to decide between a now aging Nforce2 platform or the 775. The Nf2 is a lot cheaper but now AMD seem to be pushing the 64 bit stuff but the Nf3 doesn't so DD. :(

    Soundstorms frequency range only extends upto 18Khz. So for audiophile usage I would say its a no-no.
