I'm using a SB X-FI Extreme Music card on Windows XP, trying to hook it up via toslink ( mini -> optical ) to my Denon AVR 3805 receiver.
I have been scouring the internet for help on this, but haven't been able to find anything that works.
The minijack is plugged into the 'flexijack' port, and in the sounblaster console (entertainment mode) I told it to use the flexijack in Digital IO mode. The optical end is plugged into Opt-3 on my Denon and I set VCR-1 to Opt-3.
Windows sounds don't work, DVD sounds don't work, mp3 music via Media Monkey doesn't work.
Starting to wonder if I have a bad cable or something...anyone have ideas on how to make this work? Should I be using the Digital output jack on the card ( i tried this too but couldn't get that to work either ).
