Subject: RE: Digital out on Rockbox
From: Mark Spooner (markspooner_at_ntlworld.com)
Date: 2003-04-11


Maybe I am just unlucky, but it seems strange it works fine with archos
firmware but not rockbox. There is a signal from the rockbox as it can
be converted and amplified to optical and then it is audioable, so it
leads me to think that rockbox gives of a weaker signal and as I am
using a portable DAC + amp running of 12v it probably needs something
stronger than you would need for a home stereo with digital in.

Digital out works OK for me - going into a Sony Minidisc deck, with a
10m extension cable. With AJR20

I've been having a problem with digital out with Rockbox. With the
archos firmware I can connect my archos to my amp (with digital in) and
it works fine. However with Rockbox I hear nothing though if I convert
it to optical I hear sound. The converter also amplifies the signal, so
I am wondering if the rockbox signal is less than that from the original
firmware. Appreciate any help as I prefer the Rockbox firmware but it
is important to be able to connect the archos via the digital out.
