    I've fitted this card and everything is good... apart from the card always choosing 48,000hz when playing DVDs - I thought it would output 192Khz? Do I need to do something "special" or am I being silly?

    :confused:

    Aha :)

    So what takes advantage of 192Khz?

    SACD - Super Audio CD.

    However - there is no software I know of that decodes SACD on a PC.

    The 192Khz capability will allow you to capture\record at that sample rate and then play it back.

    What frequency does DVD-A use? I think there's at least one DVD player that can decode that format.

    DVDA is 96Khz - There is a version of WinDVD that plays it back thorugh the Creative Audigy ZS2 only I beleive.

    Software decoding of DVDA is not allowed as MAudio have recently found out.

    When MAudio were about to release the Revolution 7.1 they stated it would have DVDA playback through driver support and software. Almost a year on that never happened due to DVD forum stating that the decryption must not be done in software. Many Revo owners were left red faced as they were given the impression it was going to be the card that gave them DVDA - that includes me.

    The Audigy uses hardware to decyrpt the encoded DVDA.

    "With 8 (7.1) channels, 24-Bit/96 kHz for recording and 24-Bit/192 kHz for playback".

    So how does one get 24-bit/192 khz playback if nothing is encoded at these rates? :confused:

    Well I'm guessing that maybe some signal processing application used in pro/semi-pro-recording may result in higher-than-recorded sample rates perhaps?
