spdif question/confusion?!


New member
Ok, this may sound stupid...but, here it goes...

I have the sound blaster live x-gamer which of course has the spdif out. I also have a pioneer elite receiver with optical and digital coax in. Do they make a cable to connect the two together? Or, what the heck do you connect the spdif to?

I currently have the sound card output 1 going to the receiver which is splitting the sound to my front left, center and front right speakers. I have output 2 going to my sub (which is self amplified) and splitting my two rear speakers off of that. It sounds good, but no digital...analog only.
I think the 5.1 has a mini digital out, just find a mini out to full size out for Spidf/Coaxial, not Optical TOSLink
