Its regarding of our chart..
Sound Blaster PCM won't work on anything newer than the i8xx series of Intel chipsets.

I didn't disagree with that, I was just sharing my experience.

Some i815 motherboards can be very compatible... I once had one and SBLive! worked with it.

However, as i815 is accompanied with ICH, it's uncertain whether DDMA-dependent cards (like YMF7xx) would continue to function there. The 440BX/PIIX4 appeared to be the last chipset to incorporate both PCI legacy DMA technologies (PC-PCI and DDMA, with the former usually requiring a physical signal connection). Most southbridges after that incorporate only either one of the two (Intel incorporated PC-PCI up to ICH5, while VIA incorporated DDMA, the last recognized one is VT82C686B, not sure about future VT823x ones but some sound cards continued to work).

DDMA is an issue, AZF3328 did not work on the same i815EP board due to DDMA issues. FM801 uses a different method and it works.

SB live is working even with i865.
