Would I need 3x 2.5mm jacks to RCA for each output on my sound card connected to my home system?
I tried testing the subwoofer out.. but on my home system I only have one RCA jack for sub and one on center, so I connected the sub out to those outputs, but when I test the sound I get nothing.. its really weird... the only input on my home system is DVD.. which has the surround rca inputs.

which x-fi did you get ? if you got the one with the seperate box(asio) you can use the lead with that to go from the pc to that box and then a tos link or rca cable to your home system

well I figured it out.
I have a x-fi without the IO console... so I bought 3x 3.5mm jack to RCA and had each output to the designated outputs on my home system.. but if I use my home system I must set it to multi-channel and not SURROUND.. which is weird but it works...I also had to run the assignment wizard in the THX settings of the x-fi.


thanks anyways

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
