Operating System: Windows 98SE (Note: might work with other versions of this os.)
Initial release of the Revolution 5.1 product
To listen to CD audio, make sure that "Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device" is checked for the CD-ROM drive.
If audio sounds distorted when watching a DVD, make sure DMA mode is selected for the Primary and Secondary IDE channels. (These can be set in the Device Manager.)
The Revolution driver may not be able to be dynamically loaded/unloaded without rebooting on some systems. Rebooting the system will restart the driver.
X2 and X3 Gamers please note that if you are using X2 or X3 while in Game Mode, re-opening the Control Panel shows circle surround enabled (when in fact it is X2 or X3). Check or re-set your settings.
Windows 2000: Gamers note that you may experience a slight delay when adjusting the master volume in the Revolution Control Panel while the Control Panel is in Game Mode.
Windows 98se: Due to limitations of Windows 98se, many surround-sound algorithms will be processor and memory intensive. You may experience compromised performance depending on what tasks you have running vis-à-vis your CPU speed. We highly recommend Windows 98se users to upgrade to Windows 2000 or XP to fully take advantage of
the Revolution 5.1?s surround features. X2 and X3 are provided as non-processor-intensive alternatives to multi-channel streaming, although they do not provide actual surround-sound-scaping.
