Hello, I have a USBstreamer that I have been using for nearly a year now. I'm using it as a converter from USB in to TOSlink out to a 4x10HD which outputs to my triamped system. Until today this has worked flawlessly, to the point where I am a bit shocked that something quit! Tonight I got a message when first starting the music from JRiver that said it couldn't convert the 96khz into 48khz so couldn't start the first track.. When I checked the USBstreamer control panel it said under 'status' the current sample rate was 48khz.. Windows 10 'sound' was set to 96khz. After a reboot, the streamer control pnl came back as 96khz, JRiver could play now but no sound at all from my system. A quick check with a FiiO DAC/HP amp confirmed that it was outputting, (to my headphones).

What I have done so far is to change the toslink cord to a different one. I have ran the USB streamer from 3 different media players, JRiver, Roon, and Audirvana. None will produce any sound. All the LED's are lit, so definitely have power.

I hooked the toslink from the USB streamer to a Schiit Modi 3 that has toslink input, and still no sound. At this point I'm about 90% leaning towards the USB streamer is either bad, or needs a bios update possibly.

Any help you can give me I would really appreciate it! I'm not that great at troubleshooting this digital stuff, so I may be overlooking something obvious.
