    Is this possible.... Digital IN

    All,

    I have emailed SoundBlaster NUMEROUS times about this but they have YET to get back to me. I am trying to figure out it I can use an external DVD changer with Optical out to feed directly into a SB Audigy 2ZS Platinum Pro. The DVD changer will output dolby digital on the optical cable but will the platinum pro decode it and pass it onto the speakers? If not, does anyone know a card (not a seperate device) that can do this?

    M-Audio says this card, and the Audiophile 2496 can pass through DD/DTS:

    But you should check what they really mean by "pass-through"; maybe they're only referring to the Digital Out, not Digital Inputs.

    Or just set the DVD changer to just output Dolby ProLogic encoded PCM S/PDIF.

    You may have to use a " Recording " soundcard ..

    Usually they have multiple inputs and some have Digital in/out .

    Usually run ya a couple hundred and come with a demo or scaled down version of recording software.

    (edit) something like this
