I finally got DD (AC3) thru the versajack on the Turtle Beach Santa Cruz.

I just built up a new HTPC and tried Win98, Win98SE, and WinME with no AC3 pass thru. I have been working with Turtle Beach support and they suggested sending the card back to them for an exchange.

Before sending it in, I tried Win2K. I installed service pack 2, DirectX8 for Win2K, Santa Cruz drivers for Win2K and WinDVD. I got DD AC3 to pass thru

I tried installing ATI DVD Player 4.1/DVD Genie 4.0 and I'm getting audio stuttering on SPDIF output.

Do I need to install MMC 7.1? I just installed the DVD player.

ASUS A7V133 (Bios 1004, 4in1 4.24.2)
AMD 850 TBird
128 mB PC133
Radeon LE (7075)
Turtle Beach Santa Cruz

Sony 1271, A7V133 1300mhz, 1 gB RAM, 9250LE , TB Santa Cruz

Westinghouse LVM-37W3, NSK2400, AN-M2HD, AMD64 x2 5000 Brisbane, SI-128, 2 gB DDR2

My Santa Cruz SPDIF worked OK with both WinDVD and PowerDVD. Remember that you have to use a STEREO mini phone jack to RCA cable and use the RIGHT (Red) channel to connect to your receiver's SPDIF input.

I had a problem with the ATI DVD player stuttering and then locking up only using SPDIF on the Santa Cruz.

I fixed the ATI problem by replacing the Santa Cruz with a Turtle Beach Montego II Quadzilla.
