Excellent thanks for the input guys. I think I really do just need to go to a nice audio/video shop and listen for myself, as I'm guessing I am looking way too high end for myself right now. I live in a small town so I will have to travel a few hours to find a shop, but if I am going to drop that kind of coin I guess it will be...

Awesome, the 9.3 drivers work! I now have audio and the videos I have tested play just fine. Many thanks. By the way, my card has a native hdmi port, no adapter needed. Just thought I'd point that out to anyone stumbling across this thread.

Had a quick look for info. on that driver and couldn't find any. Who supplies the driver? Is it AMD/ATI or Realtek? EDIT - OK, found it. It's Realtek. Will give it a go! EDIT 2 - Tried it, still the same. Boot server, sound is fine, leave video playing, change channels on the TV, change back to PC, no sound. EDIT 3 -...

Is possible to use digital coax or optical in/out on your ampf. and sound board? If so its the best and easiest way. If not just check the audio decoder to decode 5.1 channel mix.

The solution to my problem was to use AC3 Filter, found here: AC3Filter And some settings here: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/software-codecs-mediaportal-175/ac3-ueber-spdif-laeuft-aber-kein-dts-43472/ No I don't speak German, but I can understand the screens and so can you ;)

MP1 MP2 5.1 Surround setup DE
thanks for the replies guys. only problem with my current sound setup is that the amp im using was part of my old dvd player setup, so the cable running from the sound card to the amp/sub is a custom made (as the dvd player audio out socket was a weird shape) so wont fit any of the sound card outputs. im currently using the...

Just found out that there is a Diamond card that might work perfect. It uses a cmedia chip, and there are some open source drivers that are suppose to make it work really good. Plus its only $30 here is a description of the open source drivers: This project aims at developing drivers for C-Media 8738 / 8768 based soundcards...

Depends a bit on your soundcard. If you have a soundblaster card - Audigy or so, kx driver allows you to assign various device codes to the output sockets of the card. Using these drivers I have normal PC sound going to the PC speakers, and MediaPortal sound going to the Home Theater rig. Similarly, because I occasionally use iTunes...

SPDIF Passthru ?.... How old is your motherboard ?.. I have (atm) a "fairly" old Gigabyte - The optical out lets me stream anything directly through (DD5.1, DTS etc.) - I'm assuming that is what you're after.. Cheers, /Steff

MP1 MP2 sound card as pre-amp? (1 Viewer) DE
Ok sorted it with a bit of research...not many sound card manufacturers give their line out voltages but I got an m-audio revolution 5.1 which had got all the bells and whistles I need with a 1v line out sounds heaps better than my on-board ac97 chip even without the amp etc.

If you have a good amplifier, that does good channel-upmixing, DTS and DD you should consider a digital connection (let all the hardwork be done by the amplifier. That way you have the same good quality with a crappy soundcard as with an expensive one. If you have a good one you should consider to connect it analog, but then you...

Thanks for the reply, but as I mentioned those high end cards are out of my price range right now. Right now I'm looking now at getting the Chaintek AV-710 http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16829120103 Or I could spend another $20 to get the Creative Optical I/O module thingy and use that with the Audigy.

Hmmm.. Do you mean hving rca (round single plugs one channel each) on a new soundcard cabled to your tv? If so an excellent soundcard is the Audiphile cards. But, however it's not needed. You can purchase a RCA->3.5mm cable to connect your existing soundcard to your tv-set. Did I answer your question correctly?` Excuse...
