Is there anything I can do on the driver-side?
what cables would i need to connect my c-media sound card to this?
and if i do connect it this way, am i limiting the potential of my DAC?
1: kernel streaming / wasapi might also be an option. You will, however, have a lag of an ac3 frame's length 32ms plus 10ms for the cyclic audio buffer to fill up in the worst case.2: that's a register bit which is exposed to userland. For more information, consult the cmedia data sheet. It's probably defining the signal levels of the spdif receiver inside the chip. cmicontrol.exe has command line switches which can be used to enable / disable the 'reverse bit' thing.
2. I would like my capture filter to be able to tell whether it's looking at an invalid stream so that it may flip that switch automagically. Do you know if that would be possible?
1.) 24bit support is still something I haven't been able to implement. Maybe I'm missing something, but chances are that the chip doesn't support it at all: with the official cmedia driver, 24 bit output is unattainable.
Have you tried any of the CMI8768+ cards? I've checked the CMI8768 datasheet and it says 16bit playback now. CMI8768+ is less popular but it's datasheet says 24bit playback. Diamond Xtreme 7.1 uses the CMI8768+ and the manufacturer seems pretty sure that it plays 24bit. I'd check myself but I can't find any cheap CMI8768+ card in Poland.
you haven't installed the driver correctly - please read the FAQ.
Before my PC was using Sound blaster live connected by analog to DAC and then to my Amplifier ahd it wasn't any delays/latency sound.bart
