    Any chance of a different link, Hotfiles captcha is ridiculous. 6 attempts all wrong.

    I honestly cant get a single captcha right, its wrong everytime I try.

    Thanks for the release! THX Console works, however, the digital-in issues reproduce on this driver set:

    (X-Fi Prelude, 7.1 speakers, see thread for more details)

    I haven't installed the UAA pack because it is explicitly mentioned that decoding isn't supported with it.

    P.S. Auzentech released a new driver on 30/9/11 for the Prelude (which doesn't do anything special, really). Does this set use it? I don't know what you mean by CD5.

    Hi there. Been using nothing but the drivers and software from the support site. Had loads of issues in the past. Started asking my x-fi extreme gamer to work in 5.1, it all went to bits for me. Check here.

    I'm kinda disappointed in this release. Why is their no option for a custom installation? I get a nice spiffy screen with the latest Auzentech drivers for my Forte that let's me pick and choose everything I want. This installs an assload of crap I don't want and then I just have to go back and uninstall it. Big waste on a SSD. I can't even deny it all as it pops up because it doesn't prompt you for every item it's installing. Is there some way I can splice the installer from the Forte pack in with this?
