So first off hers the specs:
I have an asus Xonar essence stx sound Card. and a yamaha RX-v373 5.1 receiver.
I have 2 speakers and a sub which are all connected to the receiver. The sound card is connected to the receiver via a digital optical cable.
Prior to the speakers, I was listening on headphones and those are working fine. So what am i doing wrong? help please
Update: Upon setting computer sound to S?PDIF Pass-Through Device instead of Speakers it works. However I have to keep PCM on under Xonar Audio Center and none of the other settings work in Audio Center. The Audio Center itself doesnt recognize any sound going through. I can only change the volume in the audio center. I cant change it to 2-4-6-or 8 channels. I cannot change the khz. WHen I switch the analog out to 2 speakers or headphones it will always play as long as I have PCM checked off. As well if I plug in my headphones to either my sound card or the reciever it shuts off the speakers automatically. And the headphones play at a reduced quality and play even if I change analog out to headphone or 2 speaker. Again though I need PCM checked up to get any sound.
Upon switching back to Speakers in audio settings the headphones work fine. However I cant get the speakers to work...hmmmm
