couldn't get the spdif to work - but this was my fault, I checked the Frontpanel of my case again, and I have 2 plugs for hooking it up to my board - AC97 and HDaudio. The connection to SPdif is on the board right next to the front audio, thats why I thought its spdif....
All I got to work is the back audio now. I was trying to get sound by HDMI - I tried a Geforce 9500 (with the cable to spdif on the board) and the new GT240 (takes the soundsignal over the board - but the software has to support that).
It's nothing on Mute in Alsamixer!
Just shows 1 Soundcard (Intel) - shouldn't that show 2 soundcards now, the intel and a nvidia??
Anybody got sound by hdmi with a ASUS mainboard and Nvidia card? What are the settings in the ASUS Bios? I can set it to SPDIF Audio and to Audio by HDMI - tried both on both cards, rebooting and everytime checking the alsamixer...... -> no sound
Thanks in advance....
