[mythtv-users] M-Audio Soundcard

It works well.  I have a MAudio Delta DiO 2496 and I've been using it with Myth for quite sometime using the optical out.  You will have to use ALSA, but I think that's pretty much the standard now.

It is certainly a rare card, so sometimes when I have glitches I wonder if it's something to do with support for the card.  My initial install was extremely painful, but that was back around Myth version .16.  However, all in all I'm very pleased with it.

The main reason that I got this card initially was that I wanted a card that supported optical and required no buttons / I/O on the front of my machine.  This is fully enclosed in my case and has all I/O on the back of the machine.  If there are more common cards now that have these features I might not make the same decision.

Subject: [mythtv-users] M-Audio Soundcard

I am in the market for a new soundcard, and want something decent to connect to my Rotel amp. This is a second sound card, just for mythmusic. The main onboard soundcard is used for everything else, connected directly to my TV. I am very interested in the M-Audio 2496 as it seems to offer good performance and gold-plated rca connectors rather than 3.5mm jacks, for a good price.

I wanted to know if anyone has any experience with this card and *nix/mythtv, and also whether the digital pass-through works. I won't want the pass through initially, as I don't have a surround sound amp, but wanted to know if this card would be suitable in the future.
