My System Specs

Default Downgraded to a Xfi Titanium...

... now my video playback jumps! I was running a XtremeMusic, but my only 2 PCI slots were right beside my X2, so I figured I would pick up a PCI-E one. I completely uninstalled the Creative app's and the card bfore I put the new one in. As a quick test to determine that it is the new card causing the jumping, I've disabled the card, and everythings fine. I have updating drivers and moving the card to a x1 slot from the x4 slot I have it in now on my to-do list, but if I have to do that it's not much better than having the old XM in there as it would still restrict airflow. Any other thoughts? I already checked for Creative crapware.

new drivers - FAIL
different slot - FAIL

back to my old XM now

Did you try resetting the resources in bios? Could be there's a conflict going on, or that it's sharing (OMG... how long has it been since we routinely needed to worry about that!!! :) ) resources with something else.

Seems strange that a high-end card would cause those kinds of problems, but you never know......

It think I may have figured this out, but I can't spend all day at work watching movies. I'll have to re-install into my rig and test on Saturday.

It seems that software that uses Directsound is still trying to use the Xfi XM... In particular MPC.

EDIT: Reinstalled K Lite, the correct device ID now shows up, but if I use Directsound for my audio output, the video skips.
