RE: Split sound
I remember hearing a while back that Vista will be able to steer separate audio channels. I was very interested in that because I often would like to watch a short clip using media player while my daughter is watching a DVD I have pumped into the TV. If I could separate those audio tracks, send one to the TV, the other to my headphones I'd be happy. Of course, FS would need to be set up to take advantage of this feature and be able to identify the audio tracks separately to be able to take advantage of this function. It hadn't really occured to me like this (although I think it's a good idea). I don't think it would be possible without FS separating the audio tracks. I would imagine it is meant for running more than one program at a time.
