    Sorry to shout but im having a real problem
    trying to get my HTPC to output to my
    Yamaha DSPA5 Amp. It only has Co axial and optical connections.
    i bought a phono to mini jack connector to connect from card to amp and have got absolutley ZILCH!!!
    Can the digital out be connected to an amp via a co axial cable . I have run all tests
    and am now at wits end!!

    Thanks to Fulabeer for the picture tips the image is superb now at 75HZ but a bit sad with no sound!!

    SORTED IT !!!!!!!!
    Not entirely sure how !!(think amp was set wrong)
    Now have dolby digital to accompany the superb picture HTPC now a full success.
    Maybe will now actually start to watch and enjoy films !!! and stop tweaking!!
    NB Metric yes the soundblaster player live 5.1 soundcard has digital out via a 3.5 mini jack.
