    You can get the driver working, but just barely. Protected audio still wont work, enabling Xear can cause the card to enter failsafe mode (extended features gets turned off by OS), same thing has happened twice so far with dolby also. Good old channel swap surprise is still present aswell.

    In short, we need a new driver...

    We have a winner here folks. Exactly my thoughts and outlook on this sound card.

    Killer_K I don't believe they are competent enough to fix the drivers to the satisfaction of Microsoft to get WHQL certification. I'd like to think that they were, but I've given up hope in Asus. I'm just trying to help some guys keep their legacy hardware going.

    I understand and it is nothing to do with you. What you are trying to do is great. It is just sad their top of the line "ROG" card is now legacy hardware. I think it now boils down to them paying Microsoft the royalties to get the driver WHQL and signed now. But this will be my last post here in the "ROG Forums" now. It seems nothing you do or say makes Asus care at this point. At this point everyone is just stepping on each others toes. Wasted enough time on this sound card and trying to get Asus to do something for over a year and six months.

    It`s funny when such important information (how to get Phoebus to work in win8.1) is posted by regular user,but not by ASUS itself.
    It should be sticked on top of this forum,but it is not.
    Asus should test Win 8.1 on compliance with Phoebus before this Win update was released.
    That`s how Asus supports Phoebus.

    This product is nothing but marketing lie and bag of bugs.
    Its "Premium gamer soundcard" that have soundbugs in BF3.
    It don`t work with ASIO so if you like quality music(or you want to make home records), you need another soundcard.
    But wait,you can`t install it in your PC (you have to uninstall all other soundcards to make Phoebus work,remember?)
    So you need another PC to play/record music with ASIO.
    WTF???
    Than why there is ASIO support in Phoebus` advertisement?
