I have a Pioneer 106s DVD ROM which has a digital 2 pin output.

I just bought a Sony STRDE 675 dolby digital amplifier which has a coaxial digital in input.

My sound card, a soundblaster Live CT 4830 does have a digital out connector on the external part (next to the line in input), but does not have a 2 pin connector on the card itself where the DVD could be connected (there is the place with SPDIF marked but for some reason there is no 2 pins connector)

I do not want to buy a 5.1 soundcard if I can connect my DVD ROM to the amplifier without using the soundcard, Is this possible! Is the DVD rom digital out SPDIF recognised by the amplifier?

Should I create on the soundcard (which does have the digital output on the ecternal panel) an internal connection for the 2 pins? will this work?

Does anyone have a clue? HELP!!
many thanks

I found the way to do it!!

Hey you owners of the ct4830 soundblaster, you do not need to buy a 5.1 soundcard in order to have the digital output put on a dolby digital decoder amplifier !!

You just plug the DVD digital out 2 pin in the pins 15-16 of the large series of pins on the soundcard,
and you plug your amplifiers digital in in pins 17-18!!

It works perfectly,

email me at [email protected] if anyone needs help!!
