I'm guessing it's interactive because there are 8 audio ports and spdif/coaxil (whatever it's called) output on the back, but I honestly have no idea lol... how can I tell which on it is? I can give you the number on the audio chip later tonight if that helps...DTS Connect
DTS Connect is a blanket name for a two-part system used on the computer platform only, in order to convert PC audio into the DTS format, transported via a single S/PDIF cable. The two components of the system are DTS Interactive and DTS NeoC. It is found on various CMedia soundcards and onboard audio with Realtek ALC883DTS/ALC889A/ALC888DD-GR and SoundMAX AD1988 chips, as well as several cards based on the X-Fi chipset, such as the SoundBlaster Titanium series and Auzentech's X-Fi Forte, X-Fi Prelude, X-Fi Home Theater HD and X-Fi Bravura cards.
- DTS Interactive: This is a real-time DTS stream encoder. On the PC, it takes multichannel audio and converts it into a 1.5Mbps DTS stream for output. Because it uses the original DTS codec to transmit audio, fidelity is limited to 5.1 channel at 48kHz, 24bit. More than 5.1 channels, a higher sampling frequency or data rate are not supported, due to the lack of support for DTS variants such as DTS 96/24. It can also be found on some standalone devices (e.g., Surround Encoder). Nearly a dozen titles on the PlayStation 2 feature the "DTS Interactive" real-time stream encoder, such as Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.
sorry I didn't even read your post properly this morning:doh: anyways if I can tell from the driver, that's great, I took a sceenie for you since I'm not too good with digital audio.. I just plug the green thing in the back lolcan you confirm if this board can do dts connect or dts interactive, i see it features dts surround sensation but thats not what im looking for, i searched around online but didnt find much, it would be an option in the realtek driver settings under spdif most likely
wow typing that made me realize how tired i am, <3 spell checker
