EG45M-DS2H - 2pin SPDIF OUT header - which accessory (bracket)

EG45M-DS2H - 2pin SPDIF OUT header - which accessory (bracket)
« on: December 20, 2008, 11:13:49 pm »
On motherboard there is 2x SPDIF OUTs:
a) optical output on back panel, ready to use
b) header with only 2 pins (signal + ground)

I would like to use b) with some (gigabyte) bracket to provide COAXIAL (RCA) digital output. Does exist such bracket?
I only see 3pin bracket with RCA + optical outputs.
If 2pin bracket does not exist, is it possible to use 3pin bracket and connect only those 2 correct pins?
I tried this aproach with some MSI bracket (looks very same to Gigabyte 12CR1-1SPOUT-03R) with no luck...

Then, why is there 2pin header which no accessory can use ?

Hi

all brackets for Gigabyte mobos are listed at:
http://www.giga-byte.co.uk/Products/Motherboard/AccessoryList.aspx

i confirm, for your model the most proper would be bracket model no. 12CR1-1SPOUT-03R. You can connect it to 2 pins of SPDIF_O on the motherboard with 2 out of 3 pins of the bracket, you just leave 1 pin of the brakcet (POWER) not connected and that's all.

have Merry Xmas !

Where can the bracket (12CR1-1SPOUT-03R) be purchased? I have googled but found no retailers.
