    need alittle help with SPDIF

    Okay I got a sp1300 with SPDIF which i wanted to run to the Add51t from Audiobahn then send that to my amps. I have tried everything to get this to work (including calling Mp3car) i dont know whats up Its like i cant get the Spdif to come on.
    what ive tried
    the jumper on the motherboard
    spdif set in a advance windows sound setting and the driver program.

    from what i read im not soposed to get sound from the phono jacks when spdif is on and no matter what i do i keep getting sound out.. anyideas ?

    you only need the converter if your processor only has optical in. otherwise everything else should be get you up and running
