    OK, I've had this card for about 4 months and I've been using it with my receiver without any issues...... Then I move....



    I'm in the process of trying to arrange my PC, and really don't have the room for a receiver, so I decide to run this through my Compass (been locked up for 4 months, and it's been babied throughout my ownership). I use the optical out to the SPDIF on the compass... and nothing.... I then try the optical to optical... nothing..... I then run right and left outputs to the corresponding "Line In"... still nothing (Tried all three settings USB, Coax, and Optical)...

    Using latest PAX drivers as well....

    Insert AGH!!!!! I really need some help in figuring this out.....



    I'm going to try and use USB to see if that works.. but this is not quite what all I had imagined. Any and all help is more than welcome & sincerely appreciated....

    OK.. tried USB. Windows7 recognizes Compass, but still no sound out.. Is my DAC/Amp toasted???

    There should be a checkbox for sending audio to Spdif in the settings. Check that and it will send the audio data out thru Spdif, you also have to use that spdif adapter that comes with the card. As the Digital out on the Titanium HD is optical and not Coxial.

    I can tell you on mine (I have an Audio-GD FUN...slightly different but similar) I have the following settings on the DAC/AMP.

    LINE OUT: Pressed IN
    LINE IN: Pressed Out
    TOGGLE: USB (or coaxial) depending on my source

    If you have those toggles set any differently output goes elsewhere other than the headphone out jack.

    In windows...if using USB pick the device and set as default. Also under properties make sure you're not sending out Dolby Digital or DTS to the box it won't work.

    In windows...if using coaxial set the s/pdif pass through as default. Supported formats should be up to 96Khz and uncheck DTS, DD, and WMA Pro Audio. If you're doing mostly music listening under advanced set default format to 2 ch, 16bit, 44.1Khz (also for compatibility for now). Have both exclusive mode options checked marked. That should get it to work.

    If it doesn't, plug an ordinary analog device you know that works into one of the RCA input jacks out back and jam your headphones playing with the various toggles up front. If that doesn't work then you know the unit is toast.

    Good luck. :)

    I've just run it back through my receiver for now, but this weekend I'll give it a shot as the footprint is way less.

    Thanks guys for the info... I really appreciated it

    Sorry for the massive delay in responding back... The joys of work, family, lightning + computer, and being on call...

    N0sferatU, I didn't have any luck with those settings.... However, I was reading the previous PAX drivers had issues with SPDIF out. After re-reading your post, I wondered if there were some driver issues that were the culprit.

    I previously had a X-Fi Elite Pro, and was using the coax out with no issues.. silly me for thinking that it would be this easy.. :)

    I've completely removed all portions of older PAX drivers, and uninstalled the device itself though device manager...

    Once rebooted, I've connected the Compass to the PC via USB, and it works!!! I'm now installed the latest PAX driver set (v2.25 Default Tweek Edition).. ::fingers crossed:: On a side note, I really can't tell you guys how happy I am that I've installed my OS on an SSD... Seems the faster things go, the more impatient I get..

    Working!

    Chuckles.. and yet now that I try to open Volume Panel, or Audio Control Panel, it immediately crashes.. (time to figure that one out)...

    Thanks again for the advise, it makes trouble shooting a lot easier with you guys around.
