Question about ASUS P5VDC-X Motherboard
I have an Abit IP35 motherboard with built-in SPDIF optical output, and a Technics SA-DX940 decoder/amplifier (which can decode DTS and DD) that i want to use with my PC. I have conencted my amplifier to my motherboard's spdif output with an optical toslink cable. (Note: I'm using Vista Ultimate 32bit SP1, motherboard has Realtek ALC888 sound chip and ive got the latest drivers).
I have also set the digital output as default sound device.
Now when i goto Control Panel and Sound Properties and press 'Test' button i hear no sound and my amplifier shows no sign of its getting any signal.
BTW; I can see the red light at the end of optical cable... Also, my amplifier shows a DTS or a DD logo when its operating normally and getting a digital signal.
But when I Test thru my PC, it shows nothing and produces no sound. This is also same for DVD and .mkv with surround sound playback from my PC.
How can I get SPDIF output to work???
