Question  Working PCI Soundcard with optical out - please post your hardware
Post: #1
Hi - I'm out of ideas on how to further troubleshoot the issues I'm having with the optical out on my Turtle Beach soundcard (per my original thread here: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=55415

Instead of pursuing more guess and test, I'd prefer to buy a tried and tested soundcard that definitely works.

Can people who have successfully run DD 5.1 on XBMC for Windows with an PCI Soundcard that has optical out please post what hardware you are using?

I'm using a Turtle Beach Riviera, and it works in all applications sans XBMC.

Thanks in advance.

theres a guy on avforums.com (dogbert) who coded his own drivers for cmedia based cards. he must be an absolute genius.


use these drivers on that card and you'll be smilin!

Neil - by Zeus' Beard! Great Odin's Wrath!

Where were you a week ago?? Smile

Many, many thanks - if you were local to the Toronto area, I'd buy you a beer.

For future reference for anyone with a Turtle Beach Riviera (or a C-Media based card - the supported list is here: http://code.google.com/p/cmediadrivers/w...tedDevices), the driver that neil references above makes everything work PERFECTLY in XBMC.

Neil - again my thanks, I'll let some of the other guys experiencing similar issues know.

no problem, and travelling from the UK might be a bit far for a beer!

regards,

Neil
