  1. IME, when AMD drivers mess up, they REALLY mess up. Mine have been solid for the most part, but there have been a few releases that never should have been released to the public.
  2. A lot of anti science people here for a computer forum. Take the tiki torch back to the flat earther convention.
  3. Exactly this^^^ Not the quality of the cables. It's analog vs digital to the receiver. The sound quality is good using the rca cables, but the hdmi audio sounded a little bit cleaner.
  4. It did sound like the HDMI audio was better than the rca cables. But like you said, it's not worth giving up all the control the sound card gives which is why I want an HDMI sound card (don't know why anyone would assume you want to plug an HDMI cable into your speakers ).
  5. Ah, so it's a BS standards issue, not a real technical reason. That answers that. HDMI should have an audio only standard then. I don't want to run my monitor through a receiver and won't. I'll stick with my analog.
  6. I had basically the same experience, which is keeping me on 5.1 analog via sound card. I know that Creative has a software suite you can buy to use with onboard sound, but don't think it can do what I want.
  7. It can't be that hard to replace the spdif port with an hdmi. I want all the options I'd normally have with a sound card, using the hdmi interface. And yes, technically the receiver acts as the dac for the sound card. That's fantastic. Not the point.
  8. It doesn't have to be Amazon. They have starbucks and xbox, etc. You have to be signed into msn or bing with a microsoft account. If in the rare case I can't find something on bing, I normally can't find it on google either.
  9. Yes, it would be similar to how Creative's features all work over spdif and analog with their cards. The dummy monitor work around with the current HDMI audio and going through a receiver is less than ideal. Bingo.
  10. Alexa, Nest, smartthings etc.
  11. I'm using an old ass Marantz SR6001 with Polk tsi200s and an old klipsch sub that I don't know the model of.
  12. Why are there none, other than the auzen from a zillion years ago? I would have thought someone would have made a new one by now.
  13. I've been using Bing for the past two years. I get Amazon gift cards just for using it.
  14. She is currently running for reelection as we speak. US reps only serve two year terms. And her Twitter following is enormous, so she is already quite popular.
