Thanks for the response. You are quite right, I wasn't getting an s/pdif
signal into the Gina. The reason was the cable. Foolishly I thought the red
lead went into the red socket at the S2000, and the other end into the red
socket on the Gina. Ditto with the white cable. However, when I swapped the
plugs over it worked. SImple solution really. 

Thanks again, Matthew.
