i have a zotac motherboard in my htpc with onboard gforce 9300 and nforce 730i chipset. after installation everything seems to be working except the sound. i am using the hdmi output from my motherboard and the sound stutters in every application i have tried. that includes youtube, vlc player and even the soundcard settings test page. i have done all the automatic updates and tried a few fixes i found on the net but none of them have worked, in fact most the fixes i tried ended up disabling the audio altogether.
i've just done a full re-install so that i'm back at square one, in the hope that someone can help a newb out to get this sorted.
