If the chip has no S/PDIF output, then there won't be an S/PDIF plug on the board, because there is no place to solder the wires. That driver supports the LX, SX, and MX, but only the MX has S/PDIF pins.
I have Zoltrix Nightingale Pro 6 (CMI8738 LX) and I use the S/PDIF output (CMI --> 74LV00 on separate board --> 330 ohm resistor --> S/PDIF output) on the card - via aforementioned driver.
With the original driver - S/PDIF does not work.
PCM2906 has an S/PDIF output, PCM2904 - no.Is it possible to turn on the S/PDIF output in PCM2904, similarly as in CMI8738 LX?The pinouts on the two devices are the same. The two S/PDIF pins on the PCM2906 are labeled "TEST0" and "TEST1" on the PCM2904. If you want to experiment, you could try connecting an S/PDIF connector to the those two pins and pretending it is a PCM2906, but I suspect the engineers at TI are smarter than that.
How for the PCM2904, PCM2906 pretend? At the "S/PDIF output" pin in PCM2904 is 3.3V (Vcc).When I connect an ammeter (at 200uA range / 1kohm resistance) between "S/PDIF output" in PCM2904 and ground - current exceed 200uA.
