Use SPDIF Out Board as Input


I recently bought a SPDIF Output board for outputting audio signals from my 2.1 Amp to an additional soundbar. Now I decided to change the setup and want to use the SPDIF Output Board as input but can’t get it to work. I have already set the SPDIF Pin as Input in ACPWorkbench.
Is that possible or do I have to buy the Input board. If yes, what is the difference between those two boards?

BTW, the white text (silkscreen) on the 2 pin power header of the 2.1 Amp is wrong. The +5V and GND Pins are swapped. But connecting them with the cable to an extension board makes it correct, fortunately.

Best Regards

Hi TJ1999, you can use the COAX interface for in or out, but not OPTICAL. The Optical component for input and output is different in physical, and can’t repalce.
