    Question Idiot Check: New soundcard Question.

    Hey everyone,

    I purchased a Maddog Entertainer PCI soundcard. I installed it, and the drivers. I am getting sound through the speaker output channel on the soundcard, but I cannot get the Line In to work.

    Am I missing something extremely obvious? I turned the AC97 Sound in the BIOS. Nothing is muted in the sound properties. But for some reason my XM isn't getting from the Line In to the Speaker Out....

    It has to be something simple..... ?

    Right now I think the Mic is selected as the record source. I will switch it to Line In in after work and see if that helps... Good idea.

    OK got the sound working, next question has to do with the SPDIF input. Is there anything special I need to do to get this to work?

    I plugged in my XMPCR with TOS mod but dont get any sound.... Ideas????

    SPDIF muted? show the spdif in your volume corntrol record and playback and see if it is muted or try seecting that as the record source. So was it that your line was not selected as record???

    Yeah it doesnt even show the SPDIF in teh volume control. Im going to try downloading a different driver, becuase I am missing that tab, but looking online at some websites they have it there.

    Is there an advanced option? Sometimes there will be checkboxes to check SPIDF because for cards with many different inputs, they don't want to have a long list of sliders if you don't plan on using it.

    Well the answer was the drivers.

    But now i have a new problem. This sound card need to be manually switched (through it's control panel) to SPDIF or regular stereo-output. LAME!

    I need to see if I can trick it to either do it automatically or something...

    Do all soundcards with SPDIF input need this done???

    Yup, I returned it and got the EMU 0404 soundcard. MUCH MUCH MUCH Better. Got it for 100$ at CompUSA
