|othehill, i have the regular 3-jack onboard. however it detects automatically when a 5.1 speaker system is installed in it, and biases the jacks. i've already downloaded and installed the realtek driver, and alas it works fine, 6 channel sound is on. one thing, which bugs me: i run the call setup assistant in yahoo messenger, with my mic plugged into the front panel of the case. i get no reaction (those 'lights' don't light up as i speak into the mic), until i open the realtek control center and click on front mic. why doesn't it just save the setting? after each reboot, it's back to the initial state, i have to click front mic under input audio device.|
I always say it's best to doublecheck.
