Boddington's Pub Draught Ale.

"Boddingtons' unique pale-gold ale is served by the traditional hand-pulled method, which produces a distinctive creamy head, smooth body and a little gassiness."

Hmmm double entendra there. I remember laughing at a can of that years ago. LOL

Uhhhh nope. Can't say I do.

I just hate it when you pop the top on the can and it overflows do to the gassiness and you loose the creamy head all over the floor.

Yeah this damn sound card is not working right.
It tuned out that the rear sound was cloned on the fronts. the front and center worked ok.
So i messed with it a bit and its back to what it was when I first posted.
FR and FL works. center, sub and rears do not.

Get the X-Plosion. You can upgrade the op-amps and make it sound better ( if you are using the analog outputs).

latest update.
I tried teh latest (newer) driver and have the same issues. I think my HW is having a switching problem on the analog side.

So i just found an Soundblaster Audigy2 ZS 7.1
now it seems this stupid thing needs some special cables that use 4pole 3.5mm jacks for the digital and the surround channels.
I cannot win...
Sad
