I'm working with my brand-new P4 HTPC, and running PowerDVD with the M-Audio 24/96 Audiophile card, using the SPDIF out. For some reason, I only seem to be getting PCM output, not DTS or DD.

For example, when I load the U-571 DVD and select 5.1 I get PCM Pro-logic over the SPDIF, but when I select DTS I get silence.

I've tried other DVD's and have PCM audio only.

Help?

What OS are you running? Have you updated the drivers?

Carey,

You need to set the sound output device to "WaveOut S/PDIF" in the Sounds and Multimedia (Windows Control Panel). Also select S/PDIF for the audio output in PowerDVD.

M audio Control Panel setup instructions are in the Cliff Notes at www.digitalconnection.com/Support/cliffnotes_8.htm

Hi Cary:

___To add to what Cliff posted … If you are using Windows 2000, you must switch the drivers setup for DD/DTS to Professional Non-Audio in the S/PDIF tab of the M-Audio control panel. You will again need to switch back to Consumer for PCM. Under Millennium/Win98 SE, the drivers are auto-switching thanks to Cliff’s hand holding with Midiman themselves but under 2000, they aren’t.

___Good Luck

Wow, thanks guys. It just figures that two of the people who have had the most influence on my decisions re: the components for this HTPC would get me over my first hurdle!

Wayne, yours from all of your great posts and Cliff (okay, so I ordered my stuff from Kei) from my primary vendor.

Thanks again, I'm up-n-running. BTW- now I'm about to install the Access DTV, albeit with the small bundled antenna for now. I've yet to purchase a big one for the attic...still finishing the theatre in the basement!

All the best,

BTW- I'm running WinME with all of the updates. My primary reason for choosing this was the supposedly better Radeon drivers...although coming from several other Win 2000 machines (in my office) I gotta say I already miss the robustness and stability. I do have a free upgrade to XP coming, so I'll probably do that.
