Thats it.

Anyone got any non-Creative suggestions? I'm totally open to trying something new.

Here's something to you: Switching modes (Entertainment/Gaming/Audio Creation) is now on the fly (no need to restart any application, and if any song is playing in any media player, it wont stop, it'll only pause for like 1/4 sec).

That's actually very welcomed..thanks for pointing it out.

What are the differences with the modes, I just use one and it all works fine...

Gaming vs. Entertainment sound very different. The main thing is that is changes where the voices come from I think.

For whatever reason, I'm getting the crackle/pop thing with these drivers...didn't get that with the Nov 07 drivers so Ive switched back.

XP, X-Fi XtremeGamer. Had 2.14.0001 beta. Ran the download and it updated to 2.15.0006 just fine. Solid release. Just have to remove a couple useless things from registry run section.

I hope this fixes their Vista x64 S/PDIF digital IO problem. I can't believe that I've had to use my HTPC's onboard sound to get S/PDIF out!

no, because that X-Fi is software-based - this driver is for the hardware-based cards (i.e. NOT XtremeAudio).

It's great to see the first WHQL drivers for Creative X-Fi in Windows Vista... now that the audio system in Vista is fully functional (thanks to SP1) - Creative just can't hold back...

I was excited when I read the release notes, but it was all a lie. Still terrible crackling on my system, Vista SP1 x64, 4gb of ram, and nForce4 SLI X16 intel chipset.
