|thanks for the quick repsonse!|
The odd thing is, the digital out port from the PC does not seem to come directly from the sound card.
When hooking this up, i have 2 digital inputs going to the stereo: 1 from tv and teh other from the computer. The stereo gives you the option to select the input for the sound (Analoug, Optical 1 or Optical 2). So for the TV, i chose optical 1...worked like a charm, For the PC, using optical 2 input...not so much. the Stereo did briefly show "locked" for this...not sure what that means and cant seem to find it in the manual.
Does that unearth any other options? :D
