TOSLINK (S/PDIF) Optical output failure
Hello, I have the Foxconn Black Ops X48T board which is X48 chipset including ICH9R Southbridge. The on-board Audio solution is the Realtek ALC885 7.1 + 2 channel Audio chipset and it or the ICH9R Intel SB supports the Toslink (S/PDIF Optical) does right?

I really need access to this?

are you sure the chip is working? software or hardware issue? Foxconn support says what?

Well I haven't contacted Foxconn support because I always get so little from most support. But I'll try that now. I think it' software issue, but why build a speaker system which is so problematic with windows?

Thing is I also have the Decco integrated amp which has a Toslink input. I fed the Toslink output from the mobo to the Decco input. This narrows the culprit to the mobo, not the speakers in so far as hardware is concerned. The speaers sound great with RCA out from what is a cheap DVD player with Audio CD support. But that's not utilizing the Wolfson 24bit ~ 32Bit DAC which supports 192KHz

well, try Foxconn support and evaluate their service I'd say :)

Ther help wich led to a link describing finding or installing the Realtek driver pnel might halp givr more asccess to the S/PDIF Optical, unfortunutately downloading very version from Realtek (seocond) and Foxconn) first left me with no access to a Control Panel for the sofware.
Here's the criop from yet another USB in amplifier the TecOn Modell-55 which waasn't clean until I found new tubes:

When Foxconn suggested I download REALTEK derivers which may gime access to REALteek control panel it, may then give access to that control panel and S/PDIF Optical?COAX

it's possible you need the full drivers to get access to all functionality, windows build-in drivers might not suffice
