Onboard Sound: ALC 888s
external DAC/amp: Fiio E17
Connection: ALC 888s out----Optical digital cable-----Fiio e17 SPDIF in
I do not get sound when I set Realtek Digital Output (Optical) as my playback device. I tested the cable and fiio e17 on my PS3 and it works fine. I tried on windows 8.1 and windows 7 and it has the same result. I notice that when i connect or disconnect the cable, Realtek does not say anything.
I have the latest sound drivers and i made sure the sound format was stereo and not surround.
any1 know what's the problem?
