Manually switching the Delta's S/PDIF out to work with AC3/DTS signals
Text size [-] [+]

When an AC3 or DTS stream is passed on from a DVD Player application to an M-Audio Delta Series card, the Delta card will set the correct operation modes automatically. However, this FAQ describes how to make these settings manually if needed:

This requires the usage of an external AC3 or DTS decoder.

1. Bring up the M-Audio Delta Control Panel and go to the S/PDIF tab.

From here, select the following settings as shown:

2. Use "professional" for the Digital Output Format.

3. Click on "Advanced Settings"  

4. Under Professional Format, select "non-Audio" as the data type.


5. Now go to the Patchbay/Router tab.


6. Under the H/W Out S/PDIF column select "WavOut S/PDIF."

7. The S/PDIF out of your card is now set to send the digital surround stream to your decoder.
