Hello everyone,

I'm running Ubuntu server and I'm looking for a 7.1 sound card which can simultaneously record from a digital (toslink) input and produce output through the analog outputs under Linux. I currently have a Creative SB Audigy SE, but this card will only use the digital output when the digital input is used. This is probably a driver problem.

Is there perhaps someone who knows of a sound card that WILL do this under Linux? I know that a few discontinued products from Terratec do this, i.e. the ice1712 based cards. Perhaps, is anyone able to test a Terratec Aureon 7.1, since this is a quite similar card?

Thanks!
