    I'm trying to use the SPDIF Coax out to my amp which I had working before I had to move the PC to a different location, but now I can't figure out how to get the passthru working. Usually I get a blue light on the amp for Multichannel decoding, but it aint happening. When I play a dvd thru ZoomPlayer, all I'm getting is 2 channel sound - no Dolby Digital or DTS.

    What's frustrating is that I had it all working before I moved the PC.

    I'd appreciate any help.

    Thanks,
    David.

    I now get DVD SPDIF playback if I select Non-Audio as the SPDIF data type, but now no CD playback from Meedio, unless I deselect non-audio. What am I missing??!?!?!?!

    I am now running zoomplayer as I could only get 2 channel audio through SPDIF out on my PC. I am running AC3 filter software in conjunction with zoomplayer with the SPDIF enable option on the first config screen within AC3 filter. It all works fine now. Hope this helps.

    Are we talking about the M-Audio sound card or the stand alone unit?
    If it is the later, the DAC chip used is stereo.

    It's the card. After much fiddling around, it looks like it works now. Not sure what I did, but at least I now get multichannel decoding when playing DVD's.

    Thanks,
    David.
