It's annoying. If you can figure the proboem out, you'd be my savior.
I wonder if the problem was because I upgraded the TCXOs on the Compass...

I believe (guess) the microphone channel is mono (1-channel).
Ah okay, thanks for the reply!
Ok, My xonar DG is here. Inserted, installed PCI_DG_7_12_8_1794_W7 from asus site and it is working.
Now. What do i enable and what disable ?
I am using front panel header on my case. Is tehre any sound difference /using back out ? I've connected "hd audio" cable to xonar dg. There is also ac97 dangling in there :P My case is fractal 3000. Headphones detection works with well too :)
I changed front panel amp to 32-60 (I have cal). how do I use dolby ? What is dsp hf and dsp gx ?
I'm getting the same skipping, but I think I figured it out. It might have something to do with the U3's TOSLINK output being too variable and the TOSLINK input of the Compass 2 being too strict. My Nova has a second optical input that accepts "lower quality" optical signals. I'll test it with that when I get home.
If it works with the more tolerant optical input, it would mean there's some clocking issues between the U3 and the optical input of the device being used. Not sure I can explain it more technically but I'm not surprised that the optical output on the U3 isn't top-notch given its size.
Guys, teach me using xonar dg and dolby headphone. it is kinda confusing.
I mean - how do I properly use it for music and for games.
As much as I figured out by now
- front headphone jack is good. amped just as the back. no quality drawback.
-32-64 ohms for CAL!
-for music, use 2ch and hifi on, gx off. This gives true music quality. No equalizers and enchancements
-for gaming 8ch, dolby headphone on, gx on and dh-1 + the game must support at least 5.1 or full 7.1 otherwise dh wont work properly. Just checked Prey. OpenAl enables thanks to "gx on" and eax hd works too. OpenAL in Prey means that game supports 7.1 as far as I know and with 8ch dh enabled prey is best I've checked yet. positioning is very good
Yup, that was it. The more-tolerant 2nd optical output accepts the signal just fine.
Does the 3.5 mm to 3.5 mm jack work aswell if you plug it in the Analog in and to your TV?
What do you mean it will give me sound in the meantime? What does it improve on vs just my headphones stock plugged in the TV?
