1  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / Re: 1.186a Won't minimize in W7 on: February 10, 2014, 05:07:15 pm
Thanks Peter!

But I may have done something stupid. You can let me know if I'm a bonehead or not:)

So originally, like I said in my first post, I copied over 1.186a from the W8 partition to the W7 partition. At that point I just opened it up in the Ram drive A as I do under W8, of course directing the script appropriately. I never ran install under W7.

 Then I did have to get a new activation code, which you refunded.(It activated fine with the new code, just wouldn't minimize) So I do have a separate code for 1.186 in W7 & W8

So I'm not sure if my whole process may have been screwed up by not actually installing it under W7?
2  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / 1.186a Won't minimize in W7 on: February 10, 2014, 03:54:31 pm
So like most everyone else here, I wanted to get a first hand perspective of 1.186 in W7 & try the new bios and XT Tweek settings. I copied 1.186a over from my W8 partition on the same hard drive and re activated it. So no hiccups there. Plays fine in unattended, etc. However, even with Don't use XT- tweaks selected, when I try to minimize, I get and error box pop up that says," unable to boot into minimized mode you may need to contact Phasure for assistance.

I ran through every option I could think of, even uninstalling 1.186a and reinstalling and re-activating it but no luck. Not sure if this has anything to do with it being minimized in W8 on the other partition, but I don't get the usual error message stating that the minimized state is not reflected properly.

The only other thing I thought of and have yet to try is: starting a prior activated version under W7 and checking if it still shows minimized there.

Thanks for any suggestions,
Todd

Well, I was kind of on the right track with isolating the equipment from the floor resonance with an inner tube. Just not quite crazy enough to think of floating that inner tube in a pool of water!!! In all my years going to CES in Las Vegas, I have never seen such a thing! Crazy & Genuis are sometimes not to far apart drinks

Paul,

I ascertained the same thing about a week ago, reading .1ohms from the card screw holes to the PC casing without the bracket even on the PCIE card. Also, no noticeable change in sound either.

Kind of hard to tell in the picture, but is there tape around the USB cable shield where it plugs into the adapter?

I would guess that you are isolating both the NOS1 & the PC from the floor resonance. Maybe using an inner tube under the PC with a specific amount of air for compliance. Happy I know, however, that this is not a new idea. Thought I'd throw it out there just to further the discussion.

So one of my New Years resolutions is to finally start contributing to this community that has given me so much!(With a little encouragement from Paul to not worry about occasionally sticking my foot in my mouth Happy )

Peter, you have really outdone yourself with this new release. Not only is the resolution much greater but the proper scale of the performers and their instruments is dead on and so perfectly grounded in whatever venue the recording was made. So much greater texture and true sense of the width and depth of the soundstage with the better delineation of the vocals or instruments initial tone and the accompanying reverb and decay of the venue. And never have I heard recorded music portrayed with such accurate percussive attack! Blazingly fast and real!

I also must mention what a great job you've done with fixing so many of the little bugs, etc. that just lend itself to a more enjoyable listening session.
It truly is a very Happy New Year! Thank You!

  I'd be glad to help out. I just feel bad because I've gotten so much help from everyone's dialogue on the site and I have yet to contribute.
  I've really been trying sort out some gremlins, such as bypassing input transformers on some of my electronics that the NOS1 made so obvious, that I didn't want to give my opinions on what I was hearing.
  And again to all of you that have helped exponentially improve my listening experience by your posts, I could never thank you enough.            Well, we know none of this would ever be possible without Peter so I never take that for granted!!!

Hi Peter,

I'm definitely on-board for this.

Thanks,
