I cannot hear my XBOX 360
when I change the Audio options to Dolby Digital 5.1 surround. I have the XBOX
plugged into my Sound card via Toslink Digital Optical cable.
I had done some research online about needing to enable the decoder in the Creative Audio Control Panel, but I have no "Decoder" Tab. Also, there is a tab called SPDIF I/O when I select it, SPDIF input settings are grayed out and in the box is default (pre-selected).
Is there a fix to get a decoder for this sound card, or do I need to get a new one (note: "the get a new one" is the worst case scenario).
Which card do you have? Most cards since the Audigy 2 do NOT have a decoder module, including most X-fi's.
I am using the PCI Express Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional Series. I am aware that it does not have a built in decoder, and I am also aware that the "champion series" does not have that built on either.
Do you have any suggestions as to what I can do... perhaps like a software decoder?
