Windows 7: SRS SandBox Problems on HP HDX 16t, running Windows7 RC

SRS SandBox Problems on HP HDX 16t, running Windows7 RC

I've been having problems with the audio drivers provided, compatible with Vista (IDT Audio Drivers) after I updated my OS and finally settled for the Windows High Defintion Audio Codec.

However, I heard about the SRS SandBox and installed it; it's working very well however, it does not notice any of my headphone or microphone jacks. It seems to install as a new speaker device (screenshot provided) but it's not noticing any jacks at all, while the High Definition Audio Codec detecs only one 3.5mm headphone jack and one microphone jack (out of two 3.5mm headphone jacks and one microphone jack).

- Problem 1: I wanted to get the SRS SandBox speaker device to notice all three jacks (two headphone and one microphone)
= If i want to use my headphone jacks, I am switching my default speaker back to the High Definiton Audio Codec, therefore losing the SRS SandBox Audio Enhancement/Controls

- Problem 2: The SRS SandBox says I cannot output in 5.1 surrond sound however, this laptop has a 5.1 sound card so I'd like to know how to identify this in SandBox

Thanks for all your help!

Windows 7 build 7264

even though this was 2 months ago and no one has yet to find an solution, but I experience the same exact problem. The system recognizes SRS and my headphone as 2 separate audio systems. If I enable srs, I can't hear anything, I can only hear any sound by using my default headphones sound. If there is a way to combine the both of them as one, that would be great :)
