Looks like Creative SoundBlaster made some stuff with SPDIF input.
Anyone know if FreeBSD drivers work with the SPDIF on these
"Live" card: SB0060 drive: SB0010C
"Audigy" card: SB0090 drive: SB0010D
There seem to have been various card model numbers in these
Live/Audigy series (SB* / CT*) that have SPDIF inputs.
Some cards show spdif_io pin headers on the cards (ebay pics)
vs. an external cable to an external "drive".
They're low cost so if driver support is there they would do fine.
