Terratec Optical Out - Enable?

  Johninho 19:11 16 Apr 2005

Hi folks,

Just bought a Terratec 5.1 Fun sound card. Bought the card specifically for the Optical Out socket on the back.

I cannot get it to turn on no matter what I try.

Manual says speakers must be set to Stereo or Earphones. This has been done.

Theres a jumper to set if you are using Optical out only (and headphones). This has been set and tried with different jumper switches.

The headphones work plugged into the analogue jack so I know the card is working.

The "Digital" Tab on the control panel has an enable button but nothing happens when you press it.

I'd be grateful if anyone has any ideas or suggestions.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for response, unfortunately I've already got those drivers.

I've sent an email to Terratec Support. I'll post when I get a reply.

You may have to enable S/PDIF (which is the digital output) somewhere in your settings before the optical interface works. I have a laptop with an optical output and enabling/disabling S/PDIF toggles the optical output on/off.
