Yet again, thanks for the suggestions, Carmen. However, as odd as it
seems, it actually HAD effect if I disabled the Aux entry. I will
remove the analog cable for the DVD drive now! I right now have the
headset on, with its volume control set all the way up (PCM is at
about 71% as I have a surround setting, and have to balance Surround
and PCM to be able to "properly" hear the 4 channels output). I must
admit I was rather surprised that this actually had any effect in the
end! Thanks again to all who responded!
