    Default Digital Input for EP45C-DS3R

    i've got this one from e-Bay, and i plug it in in S/PDIF input header on my mobo, but how can i enable this, the status says from my Realtek HD Audio Manager is "Lock" so how can i unlock this and use this feature.

    btw here's what i bought from e-Bay

    What system are you using, and what do you have enabled in control panel sounds?

    All chipset and drivers updated? All Microsoft updates installed?

    Sound works normally otherwise?

    What are you trying to input to that?

    Sounds to me like that is the correct setting as per this manual >>>

    S/PDIF In Status Lock:

    This is to express if the S/PDIF In data has been successfully caught by
    codec

    If “Unlock”, please click “auto lock” to catch the data again. If still not ok, please check if S/PDIF cable is well plugged

    my OS is Vista 32bit, haven't change any in Control Panel cept in Realtek HD Audio Manager by enabling it, all drivers are up to date same w/ MS updates.

    one thing is when i plug in the Optical cable there's no red light coming from the end w/c i think normally has.

    wanna use my PS3 audio output, and this confirm my optical cable is good because theres a red light from it when i plug the other end.

    yup status Lock seems right but no sounds coming from the PS3 after selecting on it's menu the Digital out.

    so anything more?

    tnx!

    I am not sure! So you think for sure the cable you bought it good then right?

    Is there maybe something you need to change in the PS3 settings?

    Maybe it is not compatible with PS3? They do have several support foruma, maybe they would know for sure what should be what with it >>>
    PS3 support forum - Google Search

    Sorry, I dont have much knowledge about this myself. Hopefully you can find help there or someone else can help you here.

    You can also contact Gigabyte support to see what they tell you, be sure to mention you are trying to connect a PS3 so they are sure what you are trying to do >>
