    Just fixed audio, with an ancient driver hack from 2009:


    Use the CirrusAudioXP_Macbook_b driver at the very top of the page. I now have full volume in Windows 8.1, using a hacked driver from Windows XP. I’m amazed it even works… every newer driver failed.

    With that driver, I guess I can strike the notion that you should use 64-bit. No reason to not use 32-bit if you have minimal disk space, all you lose is Windows PatchGuard.

    Also, while HTML5 Netflix isn’t working in IE11, Silverlight performance with Netflix is vastly better in Windows 8.1, as you would expect.

    I suspect NVIDIA’s GeForce 9 Series driver will need updates for HTML5 DRM content to display.

    It could be 32-bit Windows can’t do HTML5 DRM’ed video.

    I suspect Microsoft could make PatchGuard a hard requirement to block root-level interception of HTML5 protected video.
