Noobiest question ever?? maybe. alright how do i hook up the HTSR-800 7.1 onkyo systems reciver to a creative labs sound blaster xtreme gamer's soundcard?

i have'nt bought both yet but...

it seems from pictures and from my freinds system i seen it's color coded but only for cetner,front,surround,surround back.. but not for sub? or is sub interconnected with all of those?

Also can i buy just any 3.5mm cables?

Heres a cable that Creative sells for just this purpose. Depending on your motherboard an optical or digital coax may be used and in some cases preferred depending on the mobos audio chips and the intended use.

Doesn't appear this has a SPDIF output which will give you digital out. You may want to ask this in the HTPC section.

It has a mini-Toslink (on the left). It probably comes with the adapter. The M-Audio Transit has the same arrangement.

Connectivity: Speaker and Headphone connections for stereo to 7.1 (Line Out via three 3.5mm mini jacks). Line In / Microphone In / Optical Out* (shared 3.5mm FlexiJack). Auxiliary Line level Input (via 4-pin Molex connector). Intel HD Audio Compatible Front Panel Header (2x5pin).


Edit: OK I get it. 2 of those line outs are 3 channel, one is 2 channel, and with the special cable Creative has you can connect everything to your receiver. I'd still use the mini-Toslink, though.
