    I need a soundcard that works under mce (using directsound therefore) and that can output everything through its spdif.
    My RME digipad cannot, so I bought a revo 5.1. This doesn't do it properly either because it messes up and gets confused swapping between 44.1 and 48khz, often sampling at 96kh :rolleyes:
    Any suggestions please?

    Thanks
    Andrew :)

    Revo work fine for me under directsound and MCE05 - I had to turn windows sounds off though, as you say, they confused it.

    That's interesting. :confused: What codec is that with?
    I find that when I play music it works well (not asio or anything), then later playing a movie (just within mce itself) the revo control panel is sampling at 96khz. If I then open the nvidia control panel thingy and re-select spdif, this often clears it and the movie plays correctly. Sometimes it always works, other times never.
    Do you have any realtek (ac/97) onboard sound on your motherboard. Is it disabled? With any drivers on?
    I'm using revo driver 1.0.0.

    Thanks. Will have to have a re-install.
