I know it doesn't work with XP with the AudioPhile 2496.
Which leads me to a question. What exactly is it that is preventing
me from having 24bit output? Is it the Winamp output plugin, or is it
the OS (XP now and W2K before that), or is it the M-Audio drivers?
I have tried just about everything, including:
Disabling ACPI so that Win2K would let me assign IRQs manually,
which led to
Reformatting and installing WIN2K
As a result the 2496 has its own IRQ of 9. No more shared IRQs.
I tried the Win NT drivers for the 2496. I set the max blocksize to
16k and the min blocksize to 4k. This results in 24 bit output working
but with a horrible static/buzz that drowns out the actual music, no
matter what settings I try.
What else should I do? I would love ANY suggestions.
