I have the card connected via optical cable to my reciever (HTPC) I switch my reciever to the channel designated for the Optical Outlet, yet I get no sound. The Spdif cable is not connected on the card because both of my drives are sata. I am thinking of going coaxial, but I fear I may have the same problem. Does the SPDIF not being connected cause my problem?

Most advanced music software propose a menu to set the sample rate and resolution, so you can use your audio interface without setting the sample rate in the control panel.
If you want to set it anyway, in case you are in Windows (for example Windows 7), you can click on Windows button (Start button on older Windows), choose Control panel, go to Sound, and in Sound, you can select Inspire 1394 in the playback list, and click on properties.
In the Advanced tab, you get the default playback format, for example 24-bit 96KHz, and you can change it.
