    Hi everyone
    I'm looking at the Zotac H67 MB, for a small project.

    One of the things I need, is to pass a S/PDIF signal from the MB to a minidigi (small I/O board from http://bit.ly/pUkHxR)

    This board takes an optical or RCA S/PDIF. At first I wanted to use the optical, but then i saw that Zotac has placed a 3-pin header (cn-5) on the board. And I'm thinking I might be able to use that.

    It seems that it (cn-5) is used to connect to the graphics card, in order to get sound through HDMI, when using something other than the onboard graphis.

    But I'm not sure about it.

    Does anyone here have any experience i that regard?

    Edit: perhaps I should just my mojito-hung-overed head properly. It seems that it's no big deal: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/How-to-Use-The-SPDIF-Connector-Available-on-GeForce-Video-Cards/600/2
