Hi there ! I did work some weeks on compiling a list of known Thin clients, chipsets and labtops i know about and searched over internet.

Re: Using VIA VT8231 southbridge for sound blaster pro emulation (edit : sound blaster emulation available using softwar

Thanks, I'll open a new thread for the tool then, maybe tomorrow. Feedback for differnt systems will be appreciated (including testing of resources re-assignment, address, IRQ, DMA..) and volume levels. About +12V problem for PCI sound cards in thin clients... I know it is a bad solution, for most …

Re: Using VIA VT8231 southbridge for sound blaster pro emulation (edit : sound blaster emulation available using softwar

Ok, I made a little tool to enable and configure the SBPro feature in the compatible VIA chipsets from the scratch. In the end I decided not to add it to my Unisound tool because I want to keep Unisound fully XT/8088/8086/286 compatible, and this VIA tool needs 32 bit register access for PCI, Codec …

Re: Using VIA VT8231 southbridge for sound blaster pro emulation (edit : sound blaster emulation available using softwar

Great ! I'm really glad to read that. Lets have some more returns and i will do a post dedicated to the software. Effectively, a lot of thin clients such from HP are missing the option in their bios. Now we can use them as very tiny and cheap ms-dos gaming machines. I just bought an hp thin client, …

Re: Using VIA VT8231 southbridge for sound blaster pro emulation (edit : sound blaster emulation available using softwar

Great, I was thinking about adding SBPro compatible-VIA audio chipsets initialization to my DOS tool Unisound. I'check if I can add it with resource configuration options (Base Address/IRQ/DMA...). What is it sir ? Can i have a link ? Of course feel free to use any ressources you find here. Best …
