My brother-in-law just gave me one of his old computers. It has an MSI P4N Diamond motherboard with onboard SB Live! 24 Bit 7.1 audio. I want to use the coaxial SPDIF and analog audio out simultaneously. However, all the drivers that I've found offer no control for this. The only option I have is in the Windows Advanced Playback Controls. The option allows me to toggle "Digital Output Only." When it is enabled, only the SPDIF works. When it is disabled, only the analog audio works. Does anybody know if this is fixable or if there is software for better control of the hardware?

I don't believe that you can run the digital and analog simultaneously.

Dunno about that onboard but with any regular sound card it should work. It does work with my X-Fi card - I use analog but there is always optical signal as well (I see red light) so maybe get the cheapest X-Fi card that you can find and be done with it.

The computer I replaced was 8 years (Soyo Kt400 Dragon mobo with built in audio and included a SPDIF in/out chip that connected wasn't PCI but connected to motherboard headers). I was always able to run analog and digital simultaneously.
