Could you please direct me to the correct place for this component or let me know if I should be looking at other alternatives?

It is there. The mother board is your model K8M800-MLVF. Is there somthing else that you also need? This problem has nothing to do with the BIOS, Video Card, or RAM, but let me know if there is something else you need to identify the motherboard.

You can find the pinouts on page 42 your motherboard's owner's manual. However, I don't know which pin is which on the header since it didn't come with any cut sheet. There are 3 wires (red, white, and black) that should be +5V (VCC), SPDIF out, and ground, but I don't know which is which.
Hope this helps somewhat.

I just bought the same MB and would like to use the S/PDIF output.

this helps us tremendously to help you solve your issue if we can see what is in your system every time you post.
Be as thorough as possible please. Voltages, timings, settings, bios version. The more information you give us about the problem, and the more details about your hardware in your sig = more help we can give you.
if you are the one I answered an email for earlier, you won't get an answer from teh office until Monday when they return

That was a mistake- I ended up frying one of the lines all the way up to the optical output and fusing the pin to the board. I spent last night removing the fused pin, running a new set of lines, and soldering them directly to the optical output. Unfortunately, I am now not getting the red light either. I hope that I just blew the optical output (most likely) and didn't damage the motherboard. I'm going to order a new optical output and try it again.
To get some sort of output (the light shining), I had the white line connected to VCC, red connected to signal, and black connected to ground.

I was able to get a bracket from DFI's RMA Dept. But it only has coax input and output. The receiver I'm using only has optical inputs so I stopped by RadioShack and picked up a coax -> optical converter for $10. Everything works perfectly.
Would I be able to get a S/PDIF bracket from DFI's RMA Dept too?
