    I am trying to get 2 soundcards working with the same PC so I can use one as an electronic crossover and the other to measure the results simultaneously. It seems to work with W98 as I can configure the IRQs but not XP.

    Anyone know how to force the soundcard IRQs in XP? The option is greyed out.

    A general description of IRQ sharing in Windows XP

    SUMMARY
    This article offers a general description of how interrupt request (IRQ) sharing is managed in Windows XP. The description includes an explanation of why many of the devices on your computer seem to use the same IRQ and why Windows XP does not include resource rebalancing.

    Thanks for the thread.

    I will go ahead with XP and see if it works.
