Question about HP Pavilion dv8000t Notebook
I have a HP DV800T notebook and recently purchased the Toslink adapter for the SPDIF but am getting no light. The Vista Driver does not even give me the option for SPDIF either. When I had windows XP on the system it gave me the option but didn't have the opportunity to test it. When I contacted HP the gave me the link to the driver but still no dice. Any suggestions?
This may help. The SPDIF not working is differant for each Pc.
This package contains the driver for the Conexant Audio in the supported notebook models and operating systems. Which I picked Vista for you & your model: Pavilion dv8000t CTO.
Release Date: 2007-05-20 Version: 184.108.40.206 A. Don't feel bad you would be surprised how many pc motherboards & notebooks have this problem. Vista by far is the worst.
There is also a Security Update for HP Software. I'll list the link here as well. (do not know if you did this yet).
The link below is drivers & others for your notebook.
Post back if this did not help & I'll continue to find a better fix!
Understanding a little about S/PDIF & Vista.
Vista does indeed prevent Protected or "Premium" Content (mp3, wma, etc) from being channeled in any manner which would allow the user to create an "un-protected" copy. That is the purpose of the new O/S, to protect DRM at any cost...including customer utility. S/PDIF is considered "unsafe" and is therefore crippled to a great extent in Vista. Additionally, all hardware manufacturers are required to provide ONLY drivers that will inhibit functions such as S/PDIF in the Vista environment. Should Vista find an "unsafe" driver during the mandatory "update" process, the machine will call home and the driver will be disabled.
