Digital Audio Connection to Pioneer DVR-215 - how?
Dear Good People of Freakville, I 've just purchased a Pioneer DVR-215 SATA combo drive. Nice specs except for the audio I read.
So I’m wondering how digital audio is connected from the 10pin (5 x 2 rows) block connector at the back of this thing? There’s no other audio connectors; no on board diagram; Pioneer have no images or data on their website. I can’t seem to find anything anywhere.
Has Pioneer dropped the digital audio connection, gone back to silent movies or just the “I” out of ‘Information Technology’? Or have I been living ‘that long’ with my old P4 ‘478’?
So what’s this new 10 pin thingy and how can I connect this to my 2-pin SP/DIF input on the vidio card for HDMI output, or the motherboard for that matter, or both?
