Broken SPDIF on Gigabyte GA-K8NF

  1. Hey all, hope you can help me with this?

    My system is running the gigabyte GA-K8NF-9 motherboard which has SPDIF installed on the motherboard, I've recently bought a 5.1 surround sound kit and a coaxial cable from maplin however it doesn't seem to work with my motherboard, I've downloaded all of the updates for the chipset and bios from the gigabyte site and i know its not the cable or the surround sound kit because i've run a DVD player through it no problem.

    Its starting to bug me a little, anyone know whats wrong?

    Have you enabled S/PDIF out? You probably need to use Realtek's Audio Control Panel to enable it if you use this driver.
