Hi all! I'm new to this forum, so I hope I'll not make a fool out of myself. I have a Creative Encore 5x, with the Dxr2 card. The picture is wonderful, however the sound leaves a lot to be wished for. The sound comes from the DVD player to the Dxr2 to the soundcard (SB PCI128) and from there to a 2ch amp. I don't use the DD output on the Dxr card at all. The sound is real low, I have to turn up the volume on the amp horrendously and then it naturally hums way too much. Anyone have an idea what may cause it? Any similar experiences? Thanks in advance! /Andy.
