by Divx4u / September 27, 2009 10:00 PM PDT

Hey everyone. this is the problem that i am in right now. I have PS3 which is hooked up to my HD Lcd monitor via HDMI cable. I have Bose Companion 5 connected via USB to my windows vista pc. my pc also has a X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty. My X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty sound card comes with a option of hooking optical in and out. Since Bose Companion 5 system does not come with any other input i thought i could make use of the soundcard's optical in to connect the ps3's audio. to my bad luck i am not getting any sound. I have already switch the audio setting on my ps3 from HDMI to Optical. I was able to verify that if i am getting sound to the soundcard by plugging the headphone in to the headphone jack of X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty 3 1/4 inch panel at the front of my pc.

MY PC Spec

Windows Vista Business 64-bit
Asus P6T
Intel i7
6GB Ram
RAID 1 500GB hard drive
250GB Hard Drive for storage
GeForce GTX 280 OC Video card
LG Blu-ray Drive
X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty
700-Watts power supply.

I think that's about it. I hope i have provided enough info for anyone to help me out. Any help would be great. Much Thanks in Advance

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
