So I have a x-fi hd usb, and it works fine for my computer and I like it a lot.
 
So I hooked it up the toslink out from the PS3 to the input on my x-fi hd usb.
 
Sound works on the menu, and I played with all the settings, and nobody has gotten it to work with games.
 
 
I have no idea why, are there any dacs that work with this?
 
Is there any other way to do this?
 
I tried the phono plug as well on this, but it's full of hissing. There is a ground plug on the x-fi hd usb for the phono, but where would I plug that in?
 
 
I just want my computer audio with the ps3 as well.
 It works fine with the xbox 360, but ps3, nope

My MiniMax DAC works fine with the PS3 out of the digital optical cable.  There is a setting somewhere in the PS3 menu, I don't remember where, but you have to enable the digital output to work in conjunction with everything else.  Sorry I can't remember where exactly it is.  I just remember mine did the same thing and it was due too the PS3 settings, not the DAC.
