    Default GA-H55M-S2H SPDIF issue

    sup. I have a Gigabyte mobo model GA-H55M-S2H, BIOS F5. Running Win7 Ultimate x64. Intel Core i7 860.

    I just installed the latest audio drivers from the Gigabyte website.

    I'm trying to use my PX5 headset with my pc thru the optical output but the output seems unresponsive. When plugged into my PS3 the optical cable lights up on the other end. When plugged into the PC it does not. Nor does the Realtek HD audio manager acknowledge it's been plugged in. Is there something else I need to do? Is there an on off switch for it somewhere I'm missing? Thanks. Nothing ever just works.

    Is the digital playback enabled?

    Yes, it is enabled. Set to default. Play a track and click the speaker icon in the taskbar and you can see audio playing but you cant hear it. The jack has yet to be responsive in any way. When I plug in my three wire 5.1 surround Realtek HD audio manager has a pop up dialog for each wire asking what I plugged in. When I plug into the SPDIF OUT jack nothing happens. It's as if it's not there.

    Monitor? You mean mobo? I have my Gigabyte mobo disc. What INF file am I looking for? There are 76 under the audio folder all of which have odd names.

    Sorry wrong thread LOL.
    I am not sure if the SPDIF ports are detectable like the reg input/output, anything in the manual about it?

    B. S/PDIF Out
    The S/PDIF Out jack can transmit audio signals to an external decoder for decoding to get the best audio quality.
    1. Connecting a S/PDIF Out Cable:
    Connect a S/PDIF optical cable to an external decoder for transmitting the S/PDIF digital audio signals.
    S/PDIF Optical Cable

    2. Configuring S/PDIF Out:
    On the Digital Output screen, click the Default Format tab and then select the sample rate and bit depth. Click OK to complete.
    Connect a S/PDIF optical cable to an external decoder for transmitting the S/PDIF digital audio

    Thats about all it says to do. So apparently my spdif out is nonfunctional or something.

    Are there different types of optical audio cables? Maybe I cant use the same one I use with my PS3/Turtle Beach?
