Using DTS connect, the next day I had no audio. I had to go into the create control panel under encoder and disable then enable DTS connect. And everything worked fine.

For years though the sound card has never worked right. After long periods of time the card will start to pop/crackle only if the computer has not been rebooted for over a week. Way to fix it is to disable and enable DTS connect.
