[MPA] SPDIF Digital Noise

 I use a G4 dual 800,  MAC OS 9.2, Yamaha O2R, RME Hammerfalls 96/52 with
Logic 5 platinum.  The only time I got digital snow, was when I did not have
the buffers set high on the RME Hammerfalls.  Try increasing your buffers.
You will have to play with it to determine what is the right point, because
high buffers get rid of digital noise, but cause latency when using virtual
synths with your music software.
