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

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
