Cant Get Sound from SPDIF Optical Output

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???

Abit IP35-E Motherboard power supply


Hello here is the abit homepage:

http://abit.ws/page/en/download/download_driver_detail.php@pFILE_TYPE=Driver&pMAIN_TYPE=Motherboard&pTITLE_ON_SCREEN=IP35-E&pSOCKET_TYPE=LGA775

This mainboard uses the ATX power supply, and a new power supply can be bought in a computer store, or online.
The price is about 100 dollars, for a good quality power supply.

You can take the case with you to the dealer, so you get the right one.

Good luck

What is the opticalout with usage


Hi,
Optical out is Digital Sound output, which is used to connect speakers with Digital Sound input. This port, (also known as SPDIF, TOSLINK), is used to send digital audio from your PC/ television to a sound bar or stereo receiver.The signal is transmitted over either a coaxial cable with RCA connectors or a fiber optic cable with TOSLINK connectors.


Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

No sound from hd graphics card goeforce 2400 output, only picture


Check your audio settings if its set to hdmi output.

Also if that board has a spdif out behind near the usb ports, See if its glowing or on....if not then you have a bad motherboard. Had the same problem before with another asus board

Spdif not working


WHAT IS SPDIF? NEVER HEARD OF IT! Please, do not asume of any problems and next, please do not tamper withthe mother board. I go through many mother boards every day that have been tampered with... The information you have given me is not enough to draw conclusions on. We need the computer maker's name, model number. The ASUS number that you have given me is either incorrect or incomplete. ASUS prints their model, number in a place that is difficult to find it and become a screwdriver mechanic. Please look in between the PCI sockets on the bottom of the MB. The PCI sockets are those sockets that are white in color. There may be two, three or four. In between these sockets, you will find the motherboard number, as well as other information at times (serial number and version). The version also appears on the left top or left bottom, on the screen during the start up cycle. Once we have that info. we will begin checking the easy things first and gradually to the more advanced. Please, do not tamper with the MB. We appreciate your consideration of our service. Please return with the info. we get graded that way...

S/PDIF Location on motherboard


if you look at the manual

http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=downloadfile&dno=3989&type=manual

it states that there are SPdif ports, I cannot see any hookups on the mainboard for these, however if you look on page 26 of the manual you can see that there is a coaxial output SPdif and an optical SPdif out, you should be able to connect to those without any problems

hope this helps
