I recently purchased the ASRock 990FX Extreme 3 motherboard, partly because it has an optical port and I want to use my Astro 5.8 Mixamp with my computer.
I plug in the optical cable from the rear panel of the mobo to my mixamp and it's only incredibly crackly! If I press down on the fiber cable going into the mixamp I can hear a small amount of PC sound, but not much. This would make my believe it's the Mixamp.. but when I use the mixamp with my Xbox, no problems at all.
Is my Fiber Optic port busted or is there a type of driver I can use to cure it?
