   Audio Configuration Options for MyHD


Summary

MDP-100/120 features on-board S/PDIF digital coax (and Toslink if DVI daughter card is used).  Sound can be configured to output from this S/PDIF or from a sound card using either Digital or Analog output (depending on your configuration in Windows).  Using a sound card in the system will route all sounds including DTV broadcasts and Windows sound from the same connection.

S/PDIF output via the on-board S/PDIF and DVI daughtercard Toslink:

Configuration window shown below is located in the "AV Setup" section of the Config Panel, which can be accessed by right clicking on the MyHD TV window.

The basic configuration on the MyHD MDP-100/120 is to use the on-board S/PDIF.  Note that when this connection is used, it passes only the sound from TV broadcasts.  The S/PDIF from the MyHD is not a sound card and therefore Windows sound cannot be routed through MyHD.   

S/PDIF output via system sound card:

Note: Your sound card must be configured in Windows (Control Panel>Sound and Audio Devices) to output S/PDIF and be operational with other applications.

Choosing Wave will route the sound to the system sound card.  In this scenario, the audio will be routed to digital output (S/PDIF).

Analog Stereo (L+R) output via system sound card:

Note: Most PC sound cards have a single mini-plug output, which will need to be converted to Stereo RCA jacks if connecting to a receiver.

Choosing Wave will route the sound to the system sound card.  In this scenario, the audio will be routed to your sound card's analog output using two channels (stereo).

Analog Multi-channel Decoded 5.1 via system sound card:

MyHD will decode 5.1 sources to multi-channel sound cards such as the Delta 410, 1010, or SoundBlaster Audigy.  Important!  The audio card must be configured in the Windows Sound setup for 5.1 channel (analog) output.
