PCI MAX on XP

I've got a PCI MAX installed in a Windows XP machine. It works, however:


  • 9 times out of 10 (or something like that), the PCI MAX software crashes when I make a change (on/off or change frequency). Does anyone else experience this? It's not a show-stopper, but can be annoying, especially if I want to experiment with different frequencies to see if there is any change in sound quality.


  • I plan to set up a web-based control system for broadcasting (only to the other room, for now), so I find the GUI interface inconvenient. I would prefer command line. I see that the GUI actually invokes other programs in a separate process ... is this command line interface documented? I couldn't figure out which programs do what; there seem to be several overlapping ones. In particular, I couldn't figure out which program sets the frequency (which would help in my first problem, probably).


  • I'm a programmer, with good C/C++ and systems knowledge (although I've never worked on device drivers). I have looked at the linux driver. If push comes to shove I would consider working on revamped Windows drivers (in C instead of Visual Basic). Is there any interest in this? (However, as I will describe in a separate post, my real objective is to install it on a linux machine, in which case I won't need any of the Windows stuff.)



thanks,
mcb

This goes for me too. No big deal, but a little bit annoying.

I'm moving the card to a linux machine now, so my Windows XP concerns aren't important to me now. Thanks though.

We are aware of the problem and a new
version of the driver will be released.

Fortunately this only appears on certain
configurations and it doesn't make
using the card impossible.
