I have a soundblaster live! card. It has two outputs, line-out and rear-out. I have these connected to my logitech z-560 speakers. I downloaded the latest windows xp drivers from the soundblaster website. In the audio control panel, i have it set up to output to 4 speakers... i've tested them, everything is good.
Now the problem is when I use those speakers to listen to my tv. I have my tv audio outs (right and left) connected to the line-in of my sound card (using a 1/8" stereo connector). For some reason, I only get sound from the front two speakers. Then when I select "digital audio only" from the sound blaster control panel, I get really good sound but only from the rear two speakers. This is only with the line-in audio signal. If I have "digital audio only" selected then my wave outputs are nulled for some reason... I don't get any sound at all from the PC (mp3s and stuff). Anyone who knows a bit more about audio might be able to help with this. Is it possible to get digital audio from the PC (i.e. with wave as a source?). And more importantly, why am I getting the weird 2 speaker outputs when I use the line-in (i.e. outputting from my TV). Thanks.
