SPDIF out, wrong pin configuration?

Hi... Could someone please help me with this? In my mb manual, spdif out connector pin config is supposed to be:
1-signal
2-5v+
3-no pin
4-grnd

problem is, on the board, pin 1 is on the left (it has a '1' next to it) and there's no pin 2 but 3 and 4 are there.
I need to output sound through the hdmi port on my 9600gt vid card and it has an spdif in connector for that purpose with red wire for signal and black for grnd. Which are the right pins on the board?

Yours eternally grateful,
Maria.

This motherboard doesn't have an spdif connector. The ground can be any metallic part of the case.

945GCT - HM motherboard, SPDIF out?


Hi, Before doing anything please refer the motherboard manual, and as per my knowledge you need not solder any pin on the board, if you do so may be something else might not work. I better suggest you to check the Manual before doing anything.

Need SPDIF pinouts identified.


When looking at the board, bottom towards you assuming that the 3 pins are parallel to the pci/e slots, the left pin should be the +5V vcc the middle pin is the spdif out and the right pin is the ground. Also the 3 pins are probably not exactly the same distance from each other (equally spaced) the 2 pins that are closest together are the spdif and the ground, spdif is always the middle pin. This info is based on 2 different asus motherboard install guides. I hope this helps you.

Spdif pins


First of all when you got these pictures were they from *********** board?If they were did you wear a wrist bracelet to prevent Electro Static Discharge (ESD)? If not you may have just ruined your computer. But there is a chance you didn't. Next I am not positive but you might need to get a three pin SPDIF connector from Radio Shack. But I would try the one you have. See if it works. But I must warn you going inside your computer if you are not a technician can be very harmful to your computer. So if you take my advice Touch some part of metal on the outside edge so you are grounded to your computer.

P.S. Damage from ESD may not be right away. It can be months from when the computer was shocked. If my advice doesn't work tell me and i will give you much more help.

Hope this Helps.
