Gtx275 s/pdif digital audio cable conection

Q: Gtx275 s/pdif digital audio cable conection

The instructions that came with card are not very good. The connection to motherboard is such it can only plug in one way. The problem is on the VID card. The connector to the card has a diamond mark on it but there is no mark on the card. With the card mounted on the motherboard, does the diamond mark go on the left pin or right pin? Is this connection neccessary for the operation of the GTX275?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

All you need to do for the card to work is install it in the slot, plug in the external power, and then use the DVI or HDMI cables to link the card to the monitor. Done.

I've recently switched to Digital Audio (S/PDIF) (High Definition Audio Device) using one Toslink cable instead of all the analog wires going from my PC to my receiver.

The digital sound is amazing, CD quality from my PC is great.

However, I now also receive the digitized sound of pages being loaded as I surf the web. All sound comes out digitized when loading a new page.

Is there a way to stop this from happening while listening to music or course material without gong back to analog?

Can I have my digital CD quality and enjoy it too!

On board sound cards are not known for their quality but try going in to your sound panel and muting all input and output sources you do not use (like mic and analog)

I assume you're running Windows. Which one?

I do a lot of audio work on mine, using Windows XP SP 3, and was able to kill the sounds by opening the Control Panel, then Sounds and Audio Devices, and then click on the Sounds tab. For "Sound Scheme" select "No Sounds" and click the "Save As" box.

Hey, I was wondering how the hell does S/PDIF Digital Audio work and how does it remember exactly what % volume it should be on a motherboard?
I don't have any speakers, just a keyboard and mouse and I've, reset BIOS, reformatted and reinstalled windows 7 disc and the S/PDIF still remembers what volume % it was on before all of that, how is it remembering this?

I'm just curious how it knows.

So guys,I havent been turning on my pc(using win 7) for like a month,when i did it was saying Digital Audio S/PDIF and no sound was going nor through speakers nor through headphones.Before that everything was working fine.So,since i had some viruses on it i reinstalled win,formated both particions,but still that Digital Audio S/PDIF stayed there,in the device menager it says High Definition Audio Device,and it has 2 of them,i tried through device menager to update it but it says that the best driver is already intalled.I searched threads here,tried some downloads but nothing is changed.Since im a musician a little,gamer a little and pc user i really need to fix this,can someone help me?

Here are the specs

A:Digital Audio S/PDIF problem

Headphones and Loudspeakers only accept analog audio. You need a Digital to Analog converter, i.e. a sound card, to decode the digital audio and convert it to analog signal which is then amplified by the amplifier and then transferred to headphones and loudspeakers which translate those signals to sound waves.

Try setting the "speakers" as the default audio device by right clicking the sound icon on the system tray -> playback devices -> click on speakers -> set default audio device.

Alen88 weelcome to the Seven Forums.

Your motherboard doesn't have Realtek audio, it has the ADI 1986 based on the DevID,

PCI Vendor and Device Lists

Knowing the make and model of the motherboard would help in finding if there are Windows 7 drivers for it, but I have a feeling there won't be. If you're feeling adventurous you can try the driver from here,

ADI SoundMAX 86/88/A/B/89,Xonar [6585/6600/6605][04-03-2010] •

and follow the 2 steps on how to add the DevID from yours so that it will install.

I have a very old but very functional computer that I'd like to connect to my surround sound PC speakers. I currently have the computer connected to the speakers via the analog green, yellow and black cables, but my card states that it can support digital audio out, but I'm not sure what kind of cable to use for digital out. I've tried looking on here, but didn't find a solution, probably since my audio card is about 8 or so years old. It appears to be some sort of coaxial output on the card, but maybe not. I've attached pictures of my actual sound card, the far right port is the digital out. The sound card is SB Audigy 2 and my speakers are Altec Lansing ADA995 speakers, thanks in advance, I've been looking for a solution for a long time.

A:Cable for digital audio out for SB Audigy 2 card

Dell used a custom Audigy 2ZS but it still is basically the same as the Retail version. According to the Creative (SoundBlaster) site it's a standard 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo plug. It is not "optical" (TOS) so you will need a compatible "digital" input on your surround amplifier for it to work. Probably the best thing is to continue using it the way you are now.

I was getting some analogue disk spinning sounds off my CD rw drive and thought I'd do some investigating believing it to be running in analoge mode.
I disconnected the audio lead and thought 'that's good the digital connection is the one that's working'.
However when I disconnected that as well I was still getting sound. I therefore take it that the audio is being transferred by Windows down the IDE cable.
How do I bypass this and get the actual Digital connection from the CD Drive to the Soundcard to be used directly??

A:Sending CD Audio down digital connection to S/Card instead of IDE cable in W2000?

Actually Windows Media Player is converting it to WAVE format to play the CD audio, to confirm this play a audio CD bring up the mixer and mute WAVE the sound should stop, then unmute it and it will play, to play directly from the CD drive; load a CD player app. or disable play back threw WAVE. this is done a few differnt way deppending on what version you have.

Well, can a standard RCA cable carry the digital signal from S/PDIF from my computer to my receiver?

A:Can a standard RCA cable carry S/PDIF?

Yes and No.

SPDIF is a 75ohm signal. Not just any generic RCA cable will be able to correctly carry such a signal.

Shorter, higher quality RCA cables designed for video can sometimes "pull this off", but it's just because the shorter link length or higher quality can carry a 75ohm signal.

RCA only specifies the connector, by the way. So there are indeed "RCA" cables designed for SPDIF signal- they are just designed with higher quality conductor able to carry a 75ohm signal reliably. Most generic, cheap, audio RCA cables- no way. Might work for testing purposes, but I wouldn't recommend for permanent use. Get a good quality, 75ohm rated, shielded RCA to RCA cable designed for SPDIF.

I've been endeavoring to hook up a surround sound system to my desktop for quite some time, and because of how the standard analog cable array works, I can't get 5.1 sound without the S/PDIF cable hookup. I just went to the store and bought a 6' cord, unplugged all the other audio cords, put in the S/PDIF cable, and found that the computer did not recognize that there was any audio devices connected. The output jack is showing a red light, which I understand to mean that all is well, and I tried checking the drivers to no avail.
I filled out my system specs to the best of my ability, but I also found this link, which is the exact model of computer I have, and the only modification was replacing a slightly faulty power source

A:S/PDIF Cable not recognizing as connected

Exactly what do you have for a speaker system? What input is required for the speaker system?

If you connect an S/PDIF cable, you may have to manually set it as the default playback device (??) Windows will only allow one default audio playback device.

Finally, not all S/PDIF's are 5.1. Many are only 2 channel stereo.

A:Realtek ALC889 audio, audio fine on S/PDIF, nothing from rear output

I found out after a while. In the popup dialog when a cable is plugged in, I had selected "Rear speaker out" mistakenly thinking it was talking about the rear output, not the rear speakers in a 5.1 speaker setting. Changing to "Front speaker out" solved the problem.

Happy thanksgiving all,

I have been racking my brain for days trying to solve this problem so hopefully someone will be able to help me. I need an internal s/pdif cable to send the audio from my motherboad (Intel DX58SO) to my graphics card (Msi N9600gt-md1g). I think (but could be dead wrong) that the video card is supposed to be a 2 pin connector, and the motherboard is supposed to be a 3 pin. Can someone:

A. Help me confirm this, and
B. Find somewhere where I can purchase this online?

-Thanks so much!

A:Internal S/pdif Cable (MoBo to Graphics Card)

You are correct more of less. Just set one of theses up for a friend. it was a small two pin cable. Connected to the internal spdif and the video card. Does your mobo have a internal spdif connection and does your graphics card have a spdif connection? The graphics card should have came with a cable if it supports it.

I'm supposed to connect an S/PDIF cable between my soundcard and my graphics card to enable the sound to work on my HDMI cable (between comp and TV).

However, there is no such jack on my soundcard, which is an outdated Soundblaster Audigy Platinum.

For anyone who wants to help, the manual is here.

Can someone help me do something about this? I wish to keep this soundcard.... or at the last resort, buy a new soundcard which will solve this problem, but its gotta be cheap, and has something to connect to the front like my current soundcard, which takes .25" headphone jacks....

A:S/PDIF cable into Graphics card to enable sound in HDMI

I'm not an expert in this area but does your graphics card have an HDMI output connector at the back? If so, you don't need your sound card. HDMI carries both HD video and HD sound. If your TV has an HDMI input, you just connect the HDMI cable from the graphics card.

Hi st a little set-up explanation - My mobo is an ASUS P n-E SLI with Realtek ALC on board It has a co-axial S PDIF output for my digital connection to my DD DTS surround system I used to be running XP SP and the PC is in an adjacent room to my Lounge so I have a PC monitor but also connections into my LCD HDTV and surround system DVI video and S PDIF digital audio For watching DVD and Bluray I would switch displays and use media portal and TMT I would get DD stereo output? HD S/PDIF simultaneous Audio and and DTS sound through HD Audio stereo and S/PDIF simultaneous output? my amp and if i switched back to my PC monitor for general PC use not watching movies the standard two channel stereo speakers on it would work with windows amp internet explorer etc Now i have switched to Windows using MC and TMT for movies and windows updates included a new driver for the realtek audio i notice the interface for the realtek audio manager has changed visually for the better but for my particular set-up it now appears I have to choose a quot HD Audio stereo and S/PDIF simultaneous output? default playback device quot between either standard analogue output to my pc monitor or choose my digital S HD Audio stereo and S/PDIF simultaneous output? PDIF output That means I have to jump through more hoops when switching displays to watch a movie with digital sound or standard pc monitor use in stereo note I have to use either monitor stereo speakers or my digital surround amp because they are in adjacent rooms and the amp might be being used by somone watching TV whilst i am on the PC Further more if it helps i followed the sticky on the AVS HTPC forum for setting up MC with the shark codec pack media browser TMT for Bluray and the internal MC player for everything else Have i got something set-up not quite right or am i dreaming My only other thought is to leave it set as digital S PDIF as default and switch to analogue if i need it for you tube or something but hope that for the other users logging in to use the PC like the kids and the wife their profile can remain as analogue in the realtek settings So in summary in my old set up with XP Same PC I had a sort of simultaneuos sound output with windows sounds and internet flash video through my monitor's stereo speakers but if i wanted to watch a movie on the HDTV i turned my surround amp input over and got digital audio via the S PDIF

You might try using the latest drivers from Realtek.


I think this link works, looks like they've changed their site a bit.
Also, the Realtek drivers may need to be installed twice and the first time removes the current driver.

Dear All,

I have an ASUS M5A97 EVO R2.0 motherboard. It has got an "Optical S/PDIF out port(s) at back panel".
Please head onto M5A97 EVO R2.0 - Motherboards - ASUS and check the 'Audio' section.

I now intend to use the digital optical output of my motherboard as audio source.

Can someone already using this feature please confirm how it works? And which speaker set (having digital optical input) you are using?


A:Query on Optical S/PDIF audio connection

I don't meet your criteria for responding, but I'm going to do it anyway. I use S/PDIF in my recording studio.

On a PC, the S/PDIF digital output is designed, primarily, to feed some other device such as a surround sound amplifier and not to directly connect to speakers. Very few speaker systems have an S/PDIF interface.

S/PDIF output on many systems are only two channel stereo. Some are 5.1 but most, for whatever reason, are just two channel stereo. I have a one year old ASUS Z77 motherboard (with an i5 CPU) and the S/PDIF output on that is only two channel stereo.

If you use the S/PDIF digital audio as the audio source, it will be set (or have to be manually set) as the Default Playback Device.

First thing, please fill in the "My System Specs" so we know what you have. It helps us to try and help you.

AC97 is the older interface standard for front panel audio (headset and microphone). The current standard is HD Audio. Depending on what interface you have (plug) that plugs into the front panel audio connector on the motherboard is what you should use. The difference between AC97 and HD Audio is basically jack sensing. With HD Audio the sound chip will sense (know) when you have something plugged in.

Im playing the new AvP game on my pc with everything maxed out at res 1920*1080, cool game not even any slow down, but my XFI GTX 275 897Mb is reaching temps of 86c and thats with the fan set with EVGA presision to 95%. Can anyone advise if this temp is a bit extreem? What is the thermal threshold of this card? Am i in any danger of damaging/melting the card?

A:GTX275 Temp issue

The threshold temperature should be much over 86C. However, the XFX GTX 275 is expected to run at about 75C or lower on load. What case do you have? Is there sufficient airflow?

I don't think it's from Nvidia themselves. It seems to be something just Inno3D and EVGA are coughing up.

And I was re-reading your post about the GT300s, and I don't think the GT200s are the "trickle tech" from it, as the GT300 is a whole new architecture, on a 40nm chip. The GTX260s are basically just a chopped up 285 as chips that don't meet the requirements are just binned as a 260.

Hello, all!

I am setting up my PC as a PVR.
I recently purchased a WinUSB TV and installed it with no problem. I later found out that it only goes up to 125 channels and I have the full Platinum package with Cable. Is another TV viewer that I can purchase that will give me all the channels or is there a video capture application that will do the trick? Thanks!

Nope. The only hope you have is to find a package that simulates the IR remote control for the cable box and switches channels for you. TiVo comes with such a rig, and I've seen them advertised at times...

I would like to use my Vista Media Center as a DVR using a Media Extender. I have digital cable (Comcast). I would be using it just to watch recorded shows on my HDTV using a Media Extender and would not be watching TV on my PC.
I want a HDTV tuner card that will record programs from my digital cable using Media Center Software, not proprietary software.

Any HDTV tuner cards fit this bill? Can be PCI or USB cards (my PCIe is taken by my graphics card.).



A:Which HDTV Tuner card to use as a DVR with digital cable

As far as the HD Tuner goes, I like the huppauge tuners, they work well in my ultimate x64 system and look and work great. However, a few things you will have to consider...

1. With your comcast cable, will you be using a set-top box, or just standard cable signal?
2. With your HD tuner, will you be attempting to record OTA HD (Over-The-Air) as well as standard cable?

Just by getting an HD tuner does not make the signal quality HD. In fact, if you get an HD tuner, make sure its a Dual tuner in your case. Media center is written to accommodate HD cards before analog. Basically, if you buy an HD, all you will get is HD regardless of whether or not you use a standard cable signal. (Run into this problem numerous times). So, if you plug your comcast cable into an HD card running under Media Center, it won't see the analog stations but will try to find HD stations and fail.

Best solution is to buy one Dual ATSC tuner or one analog and one HD tuner.

Hope that helps

Both cards work fine for the standard channels 1-99. i want to be able to see all the channels i pay for using the cable card in the TV Wonder™ Digital Cable Tuner.

The problem is that windows media center is shipped with analog cable enabled and digital cable disabled. So when i go to view any channel greater than 100 windows alerts me that "You cannot activate digital cable. you computer is not digital cable enabled and cannot be used with a cableCARD"

What kind of sound card do you have? Do you change any of the wires inside the case? As far as I know, the only way to switch between analog and digital cd audio is to change the wires that are going from your cdrom to the sound card. The Audigy only has one input for digital cd audio, but your card might be different.

4. When the drive properties diaglog box opens, click the Properties tab
5. Select the check box labeled "Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM
6. Click OK
7. Close the Computer Management window.

Of course if you like the cable being in there then by all means leave it in there. I don't like it because it used to get caught up in the air flow in my case and I could hear it rubbing a fan or 2.

However, after getting the aspi drivers for winXP, I still can only seem to rip at 15x max from audiocatylist. Do I need special software to pull audio at 40x, or is there some other setting that I am missing. The CD that came with the drive does not have any software that would help.

plz help


A:40x Digital Audio Extraction... how?

I have had similar experience with my TDK drive. It seems to be more of a "source" issue than the drive itself. Probably more of the "Up-to" hype that only happens in perfect conditions. I have gotten as much as 20X from a few CDs but most seem to be around 17X or so. It may also have to do with the format you are "saving as" while you rip. I have only used MP3 @128 for this.

Hi there,

I have a digital voice recorder with a message on it that I need to capture somehow. I can get it to play back on my PC's speakers ... what software can I use to capture the output, and then save it, in order to put it on a CD later ?

oh, it's a diasonic digital voice recorder if that helps ..

Get Audacity, a freeware audio recorder/editor and set it up to record off of your sound card.

A:DVD Digital Audio converted to mp3

If you have copy of the video as an mpeg or avi file (which will result from downloading off the camera to the computer before being converted to playable DVD) there are a number of freeware programs on the net that will do exactly that - try this one
Not sure if these will accept VOB files (the file type found if DVD's are opened on your computer)
What software are you using to edit the footage? if it is something like Sony Vegas Platinum etc or Adobe Premiere (Pro or even Elements) you can split the audio from the video within the editing suite and export it as an mp3

I have an Intel DG965WH motherboard that has Sigmatel audio hardware and Intel Audio Studio software. When I enable the Toslink optical audio port on the back in Dolby or PCM audio mode, the analog outputs go dead. If I disable the digital output, the analog ports work.

1. How can I get BOTH at the same time? I need to feed my amps digital for DVDs and I need the analog jacks for remote amps when I play mp3's.

2. Is there any (automated) way to trigger the switch between digital/analog other than going into Intel Audio Studio with a mouse and clicking all the right tabs?

A:Digital audio player

i think it's the chkdsk recovery folder. you can usually view this folder by enabling "show all hidden files and folders" in folder options (control panel). or just format the drive and re-transfer all the music back in.

I'm unable to record cassette audio from my audio cassette deck to my computer. Specifically, I'm trying to get audio into Adobe Audition, but would be fine to transfer analog data into any digital audio format, which I could use to burn CD. This issue seems to come up on the forums occasionally, but I have not been able to find a solution. (I have not downloaded the audacity program, as I believe this is more an issue of my computer configuration or input issue).

Operating System: XP - Home
Make/Model: Fry's FM 7440

-I have explored various inputs, including: Audio In (nothing plays through speakers when I attempt this); Microphone input on speaker control (audio then plays through speaker, but is not recognized by adobe audition)
-I have gone through the control panel and explored enabling various devices, nothing is muted

I have a little pocket sized Sony digital recorder. It looks like there is a connection for it. But I can't find any cable, if it even came with one. Can I transfer audio from this recorder to my PC with Windows 7?

A:Can audio be exported from digital recorder to PC?

What is the model number of the recorder. We can check specs and see if it has an audio out jack. Without knowing the model and it's functionality and capabilities we are all guessing. If it doesn't have an audio out. The only way I can see to get the audio onto the computer. Would be to play the audio and use a microphone on the computer to capture it if you have one.

Hello Everyone,

I got a problem and hope that you could help me.
I have Fujitsu-Siemens Laptop with Realtek Audio card built-in.
Initially when I open the Realtek Audio Manager it shows Speakers and Digital Output as well.
I have disabled the Digital Output at certain time, and now cannot find a way to enable it again.
I've searched in the Control Panel, tried trouble shoot utility from the Control Panel and have got no idea how to enable Digital Output back.
Any suggestion are welcome, I'll try.
Thank you

Hi Guys,

It's been a while now but I'm now putting together another PC. I liked both the Antec case and the ASUS mobo and am using those makes again.

Here's my difficulty. I have a ASUS MAXIMUS IV Gene Z mobo and it talks about connecting the front panel audio connections - a 10-1 pin AAFP. The Atec Sonata Elite case has wiring with 2 optional connectors - 1 is tagged HDA (for High Def Audio I presume) the other is tagged AC'97. Which of these 2 do I connect to the mobo? I am assuming I connect to the 10-pin AAFP pin set and not the SPDIF_OUT single row of 3 pins.

Thanks for your help.

A:Solved: Digital Audio Connection

Use the HD Audio connector for the front Audio, AC97 is for older systems, and connect it to the AAFP header. SPDIF is for an optional digital output.

My drives are;

I know that both drives are capable of digital audio so can anyone help me out here?


A:Problem enabling digital audio

Two Q's to help narrow the problem:

1. You have connected the drive(s) to the soundcard with the sp-dif cable (you have 2 cables which are to be run from the cdrom to the soundcard... Make sure both are connected)

2. You have installed all relevant drivers for the soundcard, and W2k compability updates?

Hope you guys can help.

I have a Dell Dimensions PC with an Intel Pentium D processor 820 (2.80Ghz, 800mHz FSB, 2 x 1MB cache), whatever that means.

I have a single 256MB PCI-Express nVidia GeForce 7800 graphics card and my sound card is a "Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS 7.1.

I have years of VHS, S-VHS and Hi8mm analogue footage which I would very much like to convert to a format on my PC that I could convert to digital and save to a DVD for posterity.

This subject has caused a lot of confusion and I would appreciate if someone could provide me with a relatively plain and simple answer, or indeed point me to a tutorial link which would enlighten me.

A:Audio And Video - Vhs,s-vhs And Hi8mm To Digital

I have done quite a bit of tapes but I find that the quality of my finished product is not as good as the original tape. However, I use an old computer that is only 25% the speed of yours and an inexpensive video capture card. You need a video capture card that has inputs for your camera or tape player. It goes into one of your PCI slots inside your computer. It should have an RCA input and/or an S-video input. These are the usual analog inputs. In comparison, a digital sony camcorder would use firewire or usb inputs and you would not need an analog video capture card. As for software, even my cheap capture card came with all I needed to capture video. I also have the Nero suite that does anything you can think of that involves audio and/or video. After you capture your movie you can start editing it or else save it on your harddrive to work on another day. You can add menus and chapters and titles and even add your voice or your favorite songs to the project. Nero makes this all pretty easy. I have used two other capturing software programs as well and they all work fine for me. My processor is an amd duron 700hz and I have no problem capturing, editing, converting, and burning my movies to dvd. My capture card was free with a rebate so I have not spent any cash--- just a lot of time. As I said, my quality is not as good as the original but I do have some sort of backup of 20 years worth of vhs tapes and that gives me a little peace of mind. I believe my quality would improve if I actually spent money on this hobby. Hope this helps.

I'm trying to find an update to this driver but I can't find one that works. I downloaded some from google searches but after they install the program pops up an error message that says "Error! Driver not found. Please reboot and run this install again." When I run it again I get the same error.

I used a program called Everest to generate an .HTM file that has my hardware layout (motherboard, devices, etc...) that I'll include in a .ZIP file. I'll also include the DxDiag log. If anyone could help I'd appreciate it immensely!
