I'm having issues with my motherboard, with the digital audio output. I have a 5.1 Logitech system, the Z5500 I guess and when I try to connect it with the optical output of the board it freezes all the software that is making sound like winamp, bsplayer, ... anything that produces sound. Anyonehave experienced the same issue, or anyone have a solution for this? I have Windows 7 and the lastest BIOS and audio updates.
Can you explain me how to do that? I don't find anything in the sound tab that allows me to configure anything about IDT. I have a tab that have suported formats, where I put checkmarks on DTS and Dobly digital and have the sample rates too. Besides that is just tabs with "level" and info about the hardware.
this board is very picky on its settings, i had a whole bunch of issues with audio with this board.
I had mine hooked up to my receiver via hdmi cable and my spdif out was front. for that set up.
when i set it up with the optical out on the board was spdif out rear.
on the supported formats i had dts audio, dolby digital, microsoft wma pro audio boxes clicked.
levels had it a 100%
effects i had those unclicked
advanced default format would be dolby digital if it gives you that option or set it for 24 bit 48000 hz studio quality. for some reason if i set the default format higher then 48000hz it would give me no audio on certain programs, but when playing movies it would give me audio. not sure as to why i just learn to deal with it until the board just crapped out and did the whole rma thing with intel and got 2 deffective boards back after that i just went with an evga board and been happy since no problems with overclocking, hardware compatability, or audio what so ever.
