Problem With Optical Input (audigy 2 Zs Platinum)
Posted 05 March 2005 - 12:41 AM
I connected my vdigi VD-Z3 transcoder to my PC monitor and sound system. One problem I have right now is that if I use the optical audio cable instead of the regular RCA jacks, I won't get audio output from my analog speakers, UNLESS i have the MS Dash showing (when it plays that spooky sound in the background haha).
I am connecting the optical audio output from the XBOX composite cable that came with the transcoder, to the Optical (SPDIF) Input on my Audigy 2 ZS Platinum front panel on my PC. I don't have digital speakers so I can't connect my Digital Out to them. I have regular analog surround speakers (2 front, 2 rear, one subwoofer).
I've tried playing games on my hard drive as well as from DVD, and they don't play sound through the optical connection. I've enabled Digital Audio from the MS Dash. So, right now only the MS Dash can play the digital sound.
The regular red-and-white RCA connectors work though.
One quesiton I have is, is it pointless to have the digital input going out to analog speakers (in other words, does it get converted from digital to simple Pro-Logic or something)???? If not, how can I get it working in games??
