As it turns out, the setting for the enhanced audio driver isn't in the 
settings menu, but rather is in the recording parameters for each show.
And this is where it becomes tricky.

As you know, 

The first choice involves 2 check boxes: one for recording streams for the 
sound card and one via downloading bypassing the sound card.
Logically, for silent recording, this second box is the one to check, but not 
so fast as no setting there exists for acknowledging the existence of the 
enhanced driver.
So, one has to check the first,
and then tab down to recording method where one can select the driver.
Now tab back, and check the download check box.
Now, there is no way anyone, who doesn't have the driver, could guess this 

Also, as I discovered, some stream types appear not to be downloadable and can 
only be recorded by streaming.  Stations that use the Surfer Handler player 
seem to fall in this category.

If any one is curious to try this, here is an url of such a station:

Needless to say, it is difficult testing recording capabilities in the demo 
given the 5 minute time constraints.
