"Total Waste of Time"

February 08, 2013  |  By 58-Hippie

 |  Version: Realtek High Definition Audio Codec (Windows Vista / Windows 7 64-bit) 2.68

Pros

None that I can see.

Cons

Installs junk software and alters browser home pages... and DOES NOT update the Codec or the Audio Software.

Summary

I'm currently using the Realtek HD Audio Manager... 6.0.1.5864 ... Audio Codec: ALC889A ... Direct X 11.0 .... It seems to be buggy now, after some recent system changes, so I thought I'd update it (the original install is from Nov-2009). I'm running MSW Vista Biz 64, so this looked like the answer. Despite the bad reviews I thought I knew better. I'm no PC Genius, but I'm smarter than the average bear (I've built or rebuilt at least 8 PC's since 1992). I'm convinced that this really is a total waste of time, and that this is just junk software.

Updated on Feb 8, 2013

Update... a few hours later.

The Realtek Semiconductor Corp. web got me an update to v6.0.1.6662.... I have yet to see if this will help (one display bug still exists for the MSW Volume Control window).

If this site allows links... for the Realtek ALC889A codec... try starting with:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/products/productsView.aspx?Langid=1&PFid=28&Level=5&Conn=4&ProdID=173

My MB is a Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H ... running an AMD Phenom X4 9750 Quad-Core Processor ... 4GB RAM

Have Fun! ... Happy Computing!

:-)
