There are numerous guides on the internet but I still just can't figure this one out. I want to play the in game sound from a 360 Slim to a soundcard while using a hdmi display. What is the easiest way to do this, to output sound from a 360 to a soundcard if you are already using the hdmi port for a monitor that has no sound output.
I am using a Dell U2312hm monitor via HDMI, so the Xbox sends sound via HDMI but my Dell monitor has no audio output.
I see the 360 has a optical audio out. My soundcard has something called a S/PDIF in and output but the connectors aren't the same. The connectors on the soundcard looks like redwhite RCA connectors to me even though they say "SPDIF" (which is digital audio).
Here is a picture of the ports on my soundcard: Here.
So my only choice is to use the optical sound output from the 360 right. But with what kind of cable? My S / PDIF input on my soundcard is obviously a redwhite RCA connector which is what I don't understand. And the 360 Slim has a optical audio output.
Or can I just get in game sound through the controller? I need a 360 headset for that right? But I heard the controller only outputs chat and voice sounds, not in game sounds.
Does anyone here have experience with this?
Would highly appreciate the help.
