    VIA Eden and Composite / S/P DIF

    Has anyone using these uITX boards had any trouble getting the RCA jack to work? I haven't been able to get digital audio or composite video out of it...

    For the composite out I: 1) Made sure the s-video port was not plugged in. 2) Made sure the J11 jumper was set for composite video

    For the S/P DIF out I: 1) Made sure the J11 jumper was set for digital audio. 2) Made sure that "S/P DIF Output" was enabled in the advanced sound configuration in Windows.

    Did I miss something? I'm running Win98SE, I installed the drivers that came with the board (not the latest from the website), and the Line out, S-Video out and VGA out work.

    perhaps it's a bios setting that you are missing.

    I got my board, set everything up and with in 20 minutes i had my os installed and running on my television when i first got it.

    Well, I'm certainly open to a specific suggestion, but I scoured the BIOS both onscreen and in the manual...

    I've had three of these boards (well the 5000's) and one had a faulty composite, not tried 5.1 on any of them but it might be the same problem.

    Have you tried attaching a VGA and composite at the same time then selecting composite in the display properties?
    My faulty board then gave a composite output whenever there was a VGA attached (even if switched off) but lost it when the VGA was detached or PC cold booted, my guess is that your board is faulty as you should always have composite output from boot (as long as J11 is set and you don't have SVideo plugged in).

    So you have two choices, send it back (obviously do the usual fault report RMA thing) or if you don't care about 5.1 but want composite then use a SVideo -> Composite converter (parts express amongst others have them for a couple of $).

    I sent mine back for a replacement.

    Sadly, my main interest is in the digital audio... I had hoped to get 5.1 sound in my car.

    However, I never thought to look in the display properties... Perhaps the composite out was not activated there. I'll try that out when I get home.

    As for replacement... I'd had to give up my new toy after waiting so long for it

    Well, I got the composite out working! I'm not sure what I was doing wrong before, I may have been using a bad cable.

    I still have not been able to get the S/P DIF output working though. I put a meter on it and it's completely dead. Has *anyone* gotten this to work?

    did you happen to purchase the FAD-PA case? I can't seem to get the case open, and there doesn't seem to be any removable screws. I'm afraid to break it. Any suggestions anyone?

    Nope.

    Yup, start yer own thread that has something to do with your problem

    But seriously, it's just a case. Who cares what happens to it? Obviously it's no good if it's mangled beyond recognition, but surely you can distinguish between actions which are likely to result in that end, and actions which aren't?

    I'm surprised it didn't come with installation instructions... Try contacting the manufacturer, that would seem to be a pretty big oversight on their part.

    Look for seems, and jam a screw driver in 'em 'til they split

    I got my S/PDIF working, no prob. I used a composite to toslink converter to get digital into my DAC (only optical input) and it works great! What are you tring to run you S/PDIF into?

    thats what I am about to do, but when I pay 75 for a case I don't really want to mess it up unless I really have to. I want it to look good in my trunk =). Thanks for the response. I emailed the manuf. and just wanted to get a response sooner than monday, which is why I posted here.
