I have recently acquired an ESI Juli@ soundcard that will work up to 192 kHz. I will try the experiment of capturing a 192 kHz digital output from my oppo BDP-83SE to the Juli@ SPDIF input using Windows 7 and Audition. It will record through the line-in RCA's at that frequency and I expect the SPDIF to accept the digital input also.
The Juli@ only seems to work with ASIO drivers and recording software that can use them.
I knew what you meant mate...
My experience to date has not revealed sample rate issues with any of the Audio Edit app's that abound (I have the one you mentioned and a number of others). Sometimes I will get a satisfactory 'lock' at 96Khz and sometimes not, whereas at 88.2KHz and below it will 'lock' reliably. Will be interesting to hear how you go injecting a 24bit 192KHz data stream into S/PDIF on a new card though.
It seems to be a known problem amongst the Pro DAW guys and there is heaps of info to be found when you hunt around for it. The only Windows version that seems to be reliable and reported as such, is WinXP Pro and that is what I have discovered after a lot of heartache.

Once it's happy leave well enough alone and even keep it disconnected from the internet if that's possible so that you don't have to tempt fate by installing a security patch or service pack not to mention not having to run an Anti-Virus program all the time. I'm in the same situation with my relatively ancient Pro Tools LE setup (7.4.2) which is on a bit of a mac "time-capsule": Leopard 10.5.4 - the last OS certified for the DAW and plugins.
Yep, this is the way I'm thinking now too mate. Damn nuisance to say the least but hopefully will have all the niggles ironed out soon.
Still have that other problem
though but I will open a new thread to discuss that one....
