Question about M-Audio Delta Audiophile 2496 Sound Card

Open Question

Not receiving input through spdif connector

We digitize tapes using a Midiman Flying Cow a/d converter and
Sonic Foundry's SoundForge 6.0 software. I just got a new Dell
XPS 360i, installed the old software, and installed the old M-Audio
Delta Audiophile 2496 sound card. I downloaded and installed a new
Vista driver for the sound card.

SoundForge recognizes the SPDIF connector as an input device, but
I don't get a signal. I can get audio through the Line 1/2 inputs on the
sound card (connecting the tape player directly to the sound card.) That's
not what we want, though; we want to use the external a/d converter.

The old driver that came with the sound card (must have been for
Windows XP) didn't seem to work. SoundForge offered the input device
choice "Bad wav input 2". I tried it; it didn't work :-).

It's probably something to do with the driver settings, but I don't understand
them - they're not enough like the old ones for me to figure out. Please help!

I've ran the audio in on my sound card to my mixer and had the guitar on the mic in.  I've also ran the line in to a small cracker amp.  Keep it turned down. If I would directly connect it use an adaptor.  I haven't tried using a 1/4 to 1/8 adapter and directly connected to it as I wanted to control the tone. I don't see why it wouldn't work.  Keep everything muted and turned all the way down when you first connect it.  Then start raising volumes slowly  I will try and report back As far as spdif you're just recording analog to digital conversion.  I get more realisitc sound just keeping it analog til it hits my line in.  Have a quality sound card.  Not some walmart special.  I use Adobe Audition 1.5 to multichannel record.

Does the LCDVD326A have the ability to attach headphones? If so, where are the connections?

First of all, here's the manual:

Refer to page 11. Apparently this set only has audio input connections (as analog audio) It does have an audio output but it is digital audio. you can't just plug in speakers or headphones, you need an adapter to convert digital to analog.
If you're a techie and want to know about SPDIF, look here:

What is the opticalout with usage

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!

Connecting a receiver to a computer

No. That's for connection between JVC compatible units.

Not knowing what kind of inputs your PC takes: if it has only analog RCA-type inputs, run a pair from the receiver's tape out; if the PC has digital toslink (optical) or spdif (coaxial) inputs and the receiver has some sort of digital output, use that.

You could also rig a connection from the tape out, using adapter cables, to the PC's headphone in.

depends what audio outputs you have on the sky box,analogue (two phono usually red for right channel and white left channel)in which case just use phono leads to the phono inputs,Optical(toslink),connect an optical cable from the output to the optical input on the dvd channel of the pioneer,coaxial (spdif)connect to spdif input on the laser disk input of the pioneer,dont connect to the attenuated spdif.In the unlikeley event of the sky box not having any audio outputs,just use the outputs from the tv to the pioneer.The optical digital input gives the best quality on the vsa eo6
