As I pointed out in the first post, HX 2.17+ presently supports HDA sound cards only and the support is currently also experimental. During my testing I have noticed that it does not work equally well on all machines with HDA sound cards. On my Acer laptop for example it simply crashed when playing sound. That's why I encouraged feedback or other comments in order to get things better when the next version is released.
