    Switching to S/PDIF to use my receiver still doesn't work in Windows 10 2004.  It does nothing and just continues playing through the desktop speakers.  Has not worked since updating to this version of Windows so hopefully someone can figure out the cause and fix it in a future driver version.

    Hey,
     
    v0.2.1.14 works fine for me so far. Just a wish for the future: a Changelog for the Firmware-Updates would be nice!
     
    Thanks and have a nice week.

    The ASIO buffer size sample issue with microphone static appears to be gone with this driver. The need to cycle inputs to wake-from-sleep may also be fixed, but more testing is needed.  So far, so good.

    EDIT 1: more testing continues to identify that you (still) need to cycle inputs to "wake" the microphone with the 0.2.1.14 driver.
    EDIT 2: more testing suggests that an ASIO buffer size sample size of 512 continues to cause microphone static.  When I reduced it to 256, the problem disappeared immediately, and everything has continued to work fine (about 3-4 days and counting).  I will continue to test.

    Update> video now stutters every 10-15mins for a couple seconds...
    I am so disappointed by this product. Hopefully there's a fix!
     
    ----------------------------
    Ok, I just installed the card and I was initially having problems with audio chopping/(youtube) video stuttering, as described in many other posts.
    Then I downloaded the recent driver update and the audio works fine.
    Now I have another problem, the card software manager is not available anymore (reinstalled a few times) so I cannot control for instance the active output (headphones vs speakers)
     
    Can someone please help?
     
    Thanks
     
    Fabrizio
     
    PS: I am attaching the error messages I get during the installation

    The new driver version could be installed and the driver works. However, every time you restart your computer, the following error message appears. Of course, the driver has already been properly uninstalled and reinstalled, but of course this did not help.

    Info: I'm using my NuAudio (Standard) in ASIO mode with Voicemeeter and Virtual Audio Cables from VBaudio to route my sounds.
     
    - First installed this driver  2.1.14 over the previous 2.1.12. Sound was crackling, robotic and some output devices disappeared from device manager.
      Addionally, there was a new entry in device group "other devices" called "NuAudio USB device".
    - Uninstalled everything EVGA/VB Audio related, with several reboots and removing all "hidden devices" in device manager.
    - Reinstalled 2.1.14, reboot, new entry in device group "other devices" called "NuAudio USB device" appeared again.
    - Uninstalled everything again, uninstalled ASMEDIA, removed ASMEDIA devices from device manager, several reboots
    - Reinstalled 2.1.14, reboot, "EVGA NuAudio init error 0x00001"
    - Ran the setup a second time, installation was finished, reboot, everything seems to be working, from top to bottom no "ghost" devices in device manager anymore
      but all links in start menu are missing
    - proceeded with VB Audio...

    This still is an amazing card.

    I think there might be a compatibility/confliction with NU v0.2.1.14 and the 30 Series Nvidia GeForce 456.38 Studio/DCH driver. I get a buzzing sound coming from the audio when in games, but no where else. When I reverted to v.0.2.1.10 it went away. Reason I am using the Studio driver is because the Game Ready Driver is broken for me. 

    Edit: It looks to just be an INSANE amount of EMI coming off the 3090 GPU & PSU from power draw. RIP. Gotta figure something out now on audio card placement.

    Will there be a software update for Pro cards?

    Hi,
     Still cant use the Nahimic software  as it causes distortion with Battlefield 5, all seems fine without Nahimic installed.

    Replying to an old post, but any information is good information...?

    I had similar error code few driver updates back. Only solution which solved it was installing windows again. No error codes after clean install. Partial install might work, didn't try it.

    Thanks for the driver.
     
    Unfortunately the driver didn't solve all issues: 
    - having to reboot to get sound from the card at least once a day; 
    - optical passthrough supports only stereo. Using it in surround mode leads to loud skrieking and static (digital) noise and stuttering video in 5.1 sources (such as Netflix). Optical passtrough worked flawlessly with the onboard realtek which I now use as workaround.

    I have the same issue as previous poster. I have latest drivers installed (EVGA_NU_Audio_0.2.1.14_WIN10) and card was working fine but every time I restart my computer there is about 50% chance of getting "EVGA NU Audio driver failed to install correctly. Please reboot your computer and run the installer gain." error. After rebooting card will either start to work again or this error will show up again. Like I said it's 50/50 chance.

    Ok. So after latest windows updates my sounds just stop and windows just won't recognise soudn card. I have to restart computer and windows basically just makes new hardware installed sound and it works like normally.
    This has now happened 2 times since last updates and ONLY after windows updates. Fricking microsoft.
     
    Ok so, these are the updates that caused sound issues for me. One of these updates refused to uninstall but reinstalling audio drivers seems to have fixed this issue.
