i got vista sp1
and every thing worked well.
i used to connect the hdmi to my samsung A450, and it worked fine
one day it stoped working, and i couldnt use the HDMI as defulte, i couldnt disable the SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC ethier.
i tryed to TEST the HDMI connection, and it worked with sound coming out of the tv.
so i tryed to reinstall the drivers.
now i have little red cross near my sound volume level. (as in the picture)
install newest drivers
install original drivers that came on CD
Restore windows to the time b4 i reinstalled anything.
the SOUND CARD works, it works in the DELL MEDIA that can run without the evil vista.
hope for fast answer
and i hope i wont have to reinstall vista because of this.
