    I have a problem - I can't seem to get digital output from my sound card when using zoom player to watch DVD's, but I can when I use power DVD. However, I can't use power DVD to watch movies on my TV, so I use zoom player which allows full screen playback using the S-video output on my video card.

    My home PC uses windows 2000 and an "M-audio 24/96 audiophile" sound card, which has an SPDIF coaxial output. My video card has S-video out (MSI Nvidia Geoforce Ti300) and I connect this to my TV so that I can watch DVD's on my TV instead of on the computer screen. I connect the coaxial output from the sound card into the AV amp.

    I have only been able to watch full screen DVD's with zoom player on my TV. If I try and use the S-video output on my video card and play a DVD, power DVD just crashes the computer.

    Is there a solution, or do I have to choose between one of the following:
    dolby digital sound and computer screen video
    prologic surround sound and TV video

    I'd really like to have dolby digital sound and video going to my TV (in full screen mode).... is this possible?
