Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Directing Creative Soundblaster X-Fi synths to SPDIF

\015 I am using SB X-Fi SPDIF output to another sound interface (Presonus Firestudio). SB audio signals come thru no problem, but I cannot hear output from either of the 2 hardware synths A and B. This can only be heard using the SB audio out jack, which contains too much noise. Anyone have any ideas on directing SB onboard synth output to SPDIF?\015

Answers :

I have researched this same problem with my SB X-FI Fatality Gamer Edition and the answer I came up with is that you cannot output sound ( at least not 5.1 surround sound ) through the SPDIF out. Supposedly, this port is used for " some other reason " that I could never clarify. The only solution I ever uncovered was to buy the breakout box for the sound card.
