    Hi all
    from my previous thread i went and bought the audiophile card, just installed it at work don't know if it works as yet, i am not convinced i have installed it properly.I used the drivers supplied with the card and it looks a nightmare, can anyone tell me who has the card , seems i am not totally computer literate how they would install it and what do u need to get up and running using the s/pdif output for digital passthrough.

    cheers

    Be sure to update your drivers.

    well guys
    got the computer home last night, i connected the coaxial cable from my lexicon via the 15 pin lead (the lead maked "output" noted in the manual as the number 5 lead)) ,then turned on the computer and brought up the audio monitor, de-muted all the channels and raised the volume on all of then.Went through the top menu's s/pdif ect and changed nothing.

    Put in a dvd and got sod all sound, went back in to the audio moniter and changed a few settings in the s/pdif menu like audio and none audio and it made no difference However going back to the audio moniter the volume channel and the channel next to it were volume levels were going up and down.

    Spent 2 hours on it last night and got no where, now bearing in mind i used the drivers that came with the sound card (didn't have the latest drivers to hand at the time) will it make a difference?.

    Can anyone help with settings and suggestions i mean like is the dvd rom and the sound card talking and is there a way to enable the s/pdif.All i want is to pass a digital signal for DD/DTS so my Lexicon can do the rest.I am using Win dvd with Win Me.

    thanks in antisipation

    You did connect your dvd drive to your soundcard using the supplied with dvd digital connector (think it is just 2 pins if i remember rightly rather than the normal 4 pin one.)

    Can you play normal cd's etc out of your sound card just using normal speakers rather than the SPDIF connector?

    Is S/PDIF enabled in your player?
    Select prefered device in Control Panel\Multimedia - AP 24/96.
    There is no 2 pin cable connection on the AP 24/96, as it is not neccessary.

    His problem is not related to this. The cable you mention just allows cd playback.

    For the benefit of people with similar symptoms looking for a cure here in the future, what exactly was the problem and cure?

    the problem was that i had not enabled the s/pdif output , so i went into the sound and audio device section in the control panel and selected audio , i then changed the default setting (which was another setting) to the delta s/pdif setting applied it. then i went into the monitor control on the sound card de-muted all the channels and checked the sound level meters, then left every thing else alone apart from the s/pdif section of the monitor control. Consumer was already selected so i ticked advanced settings and selected non-audio rather than audio and hey presto it worked full DD/DTS pass through.

    The only problem i have found is that i have a dts music cd it played the first track fine as soon as it went on to the second track an error warning came up saying "there is an error win dvd is shutting down, please re-start your computer if it persists".I did re-start it but is keeps shutting down after the first track has player or if you try to fast forward or change track on the win dvd control panel.

    Any one had a similar problem or is due to win dvd not being happy with dts music playback

    thanks

    richard
