Thanks in advance for any help on the following questions.


I'm about to order a DFI board that has both COAX and TOSLINK spdif connectors. Is it normal for both connectors to be active at once, or usually does one shut down when the other is operating.


Can the SPDIF be active at the same time as the regular Line Out for MCE 2005...just for TV.


Additionally, is there such an adapter that does SPDIF+DVI --> HDMI. I'd like to just route one cable to my TV.

I don't know specifically about MCE, but w/ ATI software (and WMP) both are active. It's probably at least somewhat dependent on sound card as well. It's interesting when playing with the sound fields to see which does better reproduction (analog vs PCM), both have their advantages depending on your receiver.
