    Can someone confirm the configuration for using my M Audio 24/96 sound card. I can get DD from my Laserdisc player but when using the on-board DVD player on my HTPC I get sound in PCM, I'm using Power DVD, but have tried WinDVD and TTek - all with the same results.

    Could it be a driver issue?

    Any info appreciated.

    P.S I'm running Windows XP

    Mess about with the audio configuration options in TTek - you'll be able to choose the output device (S/PDIF) and format (PCM, PLII, DD, DTS etc) in there. It certainly works with that card - I was playing around with the same over the weekend - I just can't remember exactly what I did. Sounds great when it's working though.

    I did have problems with sound sync - I think there's device options for direct to the M-Audio S/PDIF, or via DirectSound S/PDIF, in the TTek audio config. Neither was great.Direct to M-Audio would slip out of sync and never recover, whilst DirectSound would freeze the picture (or drop frames - couldn't quite tell which) in order to re-sync the sound. I suspect that's what re-clock is for, but I'd finished playing by the time I found that out.

    Cheers, Carl.

    TT recomend the October beta driver from maudio I believe.
    spdif setting should be default wavout in TT as long as you've set the maudio as the default wavout device in the control panel audio settings

    I don't have any problems with TT an maudio2496 under W2K.
    However I do run at 60Hz regardless.
