Windows 7: VIA VT1708S Issues

VIA VT1708S Issues

I've done a couple searches and found some posts from 1-2 months ago about issues with the via vt1708s drivers. I have this as onboard audio for my Asrock motherboard and am having some issues - curious if anyone ever got it working fully on Windows 7.

I managed to install it from the Asrock driver CD with included HD audio deck app by using Vista compatibility mode. However, when trying to switch to Expert mode, where I imagine switches such as SPDIF are at (I never had vista, and the vista version of the software is different than XP), the app crashes.

Furthermore, if I go to Win7 sound settings and click configure for this option, it only lists 'stereo' as my options. I'm using Optical digital out and it can cover 7.1 - yet it's not listed. (The same applies for the my HD 4830 video card HDMI audio out - it only lists stereo as well). The only audio option that includes anything other than stereo is the basic audio out jacks which I won't be using.

I'd like to start using Win7 more now that it's installed, but I find myself still switching to XP too often due to this audio issue. It's a media machine, afterall, and being stuck watching a bluray with pathetic stereo just doesn't cut it.

Hi superman,

It could be that the native Windows 7 drivers don't have the capabilities that you need. Have you tried downloading the latest drivers VIA VT1708S drivers (released 24 Mar 2009)?
Tip   Tip
Download the Vista (x86 or x64) drivers but right-click them & select compatability for Vista

Hope this helps
