Sound Blaster No More!

I swapped my systems, and now the beefier one is dedicated to being my media server. The weaker one will be my file server once my SATA card arrives.

Anyway, the beefier box has no integrated sound, which apparently is required for TVersity.

I bought the bottom end Sound Blaster, which was the Audigy SE.

Much to my dismay, line in, line out, and microphone in are all the same port. Then there's speaker out, and speaker 2, 3 and 4.

WTF

Anyway, regardless, the media server moved from XP to 2003.

#1, Backblaze is UNHAPPY with this. GRRR I may have to find somewhere else for my offsite backups.
#2, The audigy crashes things with current drivers, and simply doesn't work with the ones on the CD.

Siig has a nice, old-fashioned sound card, so I have that on order, but until then, I'm going to test out VAcard, a virtual audio card used to allow servers to transcode audio.

Wish me luck!

edit WIN! It works!
