I am trying to get SPDIF over TOSLink on a CT4390. I am using an ASUS SPDIF bracket, and I connect pin 0 from card's spdif header to the signal-in, and pulled a 5V line from a floppy power cable. The TOSLink cable is shooting out a red laser, so it has power, but my DAC is not seeing any signal for GM, AWE or adlib sound.

Do I need to enable anything in the drivers to turn SPDIF output on, or what else might I need to do?

What kind of signal are you trying to shove into S/PDIF? Is it PCM sound, MIDI music, or OPL3/CQM?
