  9. Building HTPC - A couple of ?s

    So I got the SPDIF connector all hooked up and what do you know - NO SPDIF sound output - I tried a few things but quickly gave up and bought the Behringer UCA202 for 29.99 from amazon - Figured this was better quality than the onboard anyways...

  13. Building HTPC - A couple of ?s

    That is what I figured - but when I play my movies through plex everything looks great - I havent gotten the audio adapter in yet - but YES i will need it - the connector that came with the Asus Video Card is for a 4 pin connection on the MOBO - I am assuming that this is for Asus MOBO's - I probably could find a cable that does what I want but I have the bracket adapter coming in so no reason - just one extra cable that will go into my receiver. All in all this was a very simple build for me. It actually runs very fast just with the 2GB of ram - I was going to get 4 but after getting it set up last night - using it just for a media PC - no reason to spend the extra 30 bucks. Brandon
