SBLive Value 20 pin header pinouts here



The CT4830 is the second version of the SBLive Value flavour.

I did a mission to find them so I don't have to buy any damn add-on card for those of us without the CD-SPDIF In jack.

I've tried the SPDIF In [Pin15/16] using digital output of my CDROM and it works [ on my CT4830]. Now I'm confident a DVD can interface the AC3 thru the value models

I consider this a triumph


Another note: Windows Media Player uses the Wave/DirectSound/MP3 option in the Mixer. SPDIF In will not work if your playing from your CDROM audio using Media Player. Alternativly use 'CD Player' [standard windows component] this way you can see for sure if SPDIF In is functioning.
