View Full Version : GA-8I945PMF, Half-Life 2, and Realtek HD audio

It appears that if you're trying to use 5.1 audio in Half-life 2 on a board
with a Realtek HD audio codec, eg the ALC882, it just aint going to work
properly. There are driver issues, and they aren't yet fixed despite them
being known about for some time. Bah bloody humbug. I've tried the drivers
from the Gigabyte site (, and I've tried the drivers from the
Realtek site (R1.27). No joy. =:-(
