I'll disable the on board in the bios, but all I've got is two speakers hooked up so I haven't set anything to 5.1..

Not for sure on that one. I've only used it a few times. Most system use the 5.1 Did you do the test on the speakers to here each on separate?

ah, it's alright, the bigest problem is that it records in .dvr-ms format, proprietary microsoft, and the only way to put it into MGPE format is a third party utility, only one I know of is Digital Media Converter and that's 40 bucks and it's some what slow, I think. Also I only have anolog cable so at 1280x1024 it looks rather grainy. .. but it records like a tivo box which I like, it intergrates a TV guide so with a couple clicks you can record a whole series

you should get a dvi adapter if your vc supports it.....

Try this below

Requirements for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005

MPEG 2 Decoder: An MPEG 2 decoder allows you to play and work with DVR-MS files. You can download a free MPEG 2 decoder from the following link:
http://www.deskshare.com/download/mpeg2decoder.exe
