    Hi

    I've been trying to get a DD5.1 / DTS signal from my sound card 2day to no avail. I've followed a tutorial on the m-audio site but still no luck . I'm using the supplied break-out cable with a digital coaxial cable connected to my marantz sr4200 amp. I've only managed to get a stereo signal so far !

    http://www.m-audio.com/index.php?do=support.faq&ID=8cf4a39fba037e0613618e50b8081e84

    If anyone here has successfully got a DD5.1 / DTS signal from the same card could let me know what I'm doing wrong.

    Thanks,

    Well i've had no problems since i installed my 2496 card, plays all multi-channel audio no problem with my Marantz SR-4300 amp.

    Is your DVD software player sending out a multi-channel signal ??

    Have you disabled your old card (If onboard ??), or removed the drivers (If a seperate card ??) and removed the card.

    Did you have multi-channel audio working before you installed the 2496 card ??

    Might also be a driver problem, get the newest M-Audio drivers from the site, and try those.

    I hope this helps ??

    Cheers

    Thanks for your reply m8

    1. Yeah my software (PowerDVD) is sending a multi-channel signal, I have tried DD5.1 and DTS disks.

    2. I have onboard sounds from my mobo and I have disabled and removed the drivers ages ago.

    3. I've never had a multi-channel capable soundcard before so this is my first time trying to gt something like this working.

    4. I have the latest drivers, still no change :-(

    Regards,
    Marcus
