NFORCE2: loss of line-in digitization during recording

Discussion in 'Abit' started by Eugene Yun-Ching Leung, Feb 13, 2005.

  1. My NF7-S 2.0 is hooked up to an amplifier via optical. The amp decodes the
    digital stream to 5.1 properly. Sources connected to the mobo's analog line-
    in are also properly digitized as an input, and pass-through to the SPDIF
    appropriately so I can hear it.

    However, when I try to record from the line-in, the signal is no longer
    digitized and I cannot hear it on the amp. The source is still recorded
    though, because the file that is saved plays back fine. Nothing in the mixer
    is muted during recording, levels are all appropriate. I don't understand.

    If I hook up analog speakers to the mobo, then I can hear what is being
    recorded during recording without a problem. It would appear that I cannot
    use the SPDIF output for a monitor when recording, is this true? If so,
    that's annoying and defeats the simplicity of not requiring analog cables.

    This problem has been the topic of a few forums, but no one appears to have
    resolved the issue. For instance:

    Any help would be appreciated,

    Hi Eugene -

    Don't have an answer... but maybe you should search the Abit forum at ... specifically the nVidia-based Motherboards

    If you don't find an answer there, the forum gets a lot of traffic and
    posting your request for help might gain you some suggestions.
