On my 6805 the static is worst in Jedi Academy for me. In Halo I have lots of missing sounds but no static.
I don't know how likely it is that Creative is working on it. Their tech support is filled with lying morons from what I can tell. They say one thing, but when you reply, they tell you something like 'try a different PCI slot'. WTF. And I get switched from one guy to another so the conversation effort gets lost.
BTW, I told Creative EXACTLY what they need to do to get rid of most of the static with the ENE chip. I solved it by upping the Audigy card's PCI Latency to the max. Changing the registers of the ENE chip didn't have any positive effect. That was weeks ago.

For those of you who are also hearing static is it just in the background and not overpowering your audio?
Edit: I just loaded up UT2004 and turned on Hardware sound, not a problem I can tell. The static might have been there but the game sound was louder. So far the static has been from MP3 playback only. I will test a DVD tomorrow.
