Hey Tech Specialists! :laugh:

I recently aquired a surround sound system for my computer and have been enjoying it non stop for the last few days. There is one little problem though... You see, I have my gamecube hooked up to my monitor as well as my computer, using the glorious AVLink device from StarTech.com (get it if someone in your family complains that you hog the TV all day!!). The thing is though, the device is not designed for multiple sound output, it only had one speaker output port. As much as I love surround sound on my computer games, I would also like to have it with my console games. What I'm wondering is if there is any (hopefully cheap) device or way to my surround sound to work for my gamecube as well as my computer?
Thank you for your time! :smile:

I just thought of something, what if I got a sound card with like a microphone input capbility and I run the wire from my AVLink Jockey to that, would that allow the surround sound to work, as long as my computer is on?

Ok, I just got a sound card with surround sound capability for my computer, but that leaves my gamecube on my AVLink Jockey with absolutely no sound. What I think might work is getting an audio switch box for my surroungd sound system, would that work? I don't kno of any so could someone show me where I could get one?

Pelican makes the mother of all switch boxes that includes component video, networking, and optical connections. It's expensive, but worth it if you have lotsa machines and want the best quality.
