Locating the s/pdif i/o connection on a m2n-x plus motherboard

Hi there,
i have a asus m2n-x plus motherboard and am using a nvidia geforce 9800 gtx pci/express 16x video card with hdmi output. i need to conect the video card to the mother boards internal s/pdif output so that i get hd audio through the hdmi cable for my tv. ive looked everywhere on the net and in help files for the location of the 7 pin(i think it is 7) i/o connection but have been unable to find anything. i also need to know which 2 pins to connect to. i believe one will be ground and not sure what the other needs to be.

PLEASE HELP ME
regards
gleno

    All I can see here is a Front Panel Audio connector, its internal and you can get the audio from that to the card, Page 1-28

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    Did you see my 2nd comment? if you look at the page 1-28 you can see the pinout of the Front panel Hd audio.



    what do the connectors you have coming out from the card read on them? or do they read anything? I will have to see the user manual for the card and see whats going on.

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    What brand Nvidia card you got? Asus? club3d? etc?

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    No, You CAN*T connect it to frontpanel, you need digital output. not analog. DON*T plug it to the front panel connector.



    Sorry to say your motherboard doesn't have the required connector.

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    Hold on for a moment I'm going over this and making sure what your options are.

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    Have a look on this page



    http://www.kingbo.com/technical/HDMI.htm



    your motherboard doesn't have the 3 pin spdif connector, or then its not documented on the manual, see the last picture on that page.



    here you can see whatkind of connector is required



    http://img141.imageshack.us/img141/1315/...

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    In theory yes you could wire it to the backpanel connector, you would need to figure out which is GND and Which is spdif and the 3rd is vcc and you don't want to connect that.



    sorry for this mess of a solution, you can see how I woke up since my first comment on this thread.

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    Well again, You can try connecting it to the backpanel connector but the motherboard does not have a 3pin spdif connector at all, so the adapter posted by ginko is usless.



    Seems like you need a new soundcard or you need to wire it to the yellow spdif connector in the backpanel, do that at your own risk, theres 3 pins on that, vcc, ground, spdif, need to connect it to ground and spdif.

  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    I happen to have a Asus M2N - MX SE PLUS here. I can see the spdif_out connector above the front panel connector.





  • Ekse Jan 15, 2009

    looking at the manual that came with the board (MX PLUS), its documented and shown above the font panel connector in the manual also.

    So your version doesn't have this connector, only the yellow jack.

    Let me know if you need anything else.

Asus P5GZ-mx compatible graphics cards


Basically, any graphics card is capable of being compatible with this motherboard. I had some difficulties for a while until I figured out you have to MANUALLY set it to use your PCIE 2.0 GPU output.
How to do this is to set your jumpers to external output only. First thing you'll want to do is update the BIOS on the motherboard (Which you can do by getting "Asus-Update". Find it on google, easy to use, just make sure your computer doesn't crash during the BIOS flashing.
Afterwards, set the jumpers to use your PCIE-2.0 slot. Took me a little while to figure this out, and it's a little hard to explain.
Above your PCIE-2.0 slot there are 5 little blue 'plastic-like' things. Those are your jumpers. Take them out and insert them HORIZONTALLY as such:
+ [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ] + [ + + ]
Basically, make sure the jumper things are connecting the little drawing there. They HAVE to be horizontally inserted, otherwise this WILL NOT WORK. Just plug in your monitor to the graphics card's output, and you're good to go. Hopefully it works for you.
