Hey guys I just joined MPC (I've signed up before but for some reason they won't let me login) so I can ask this question...I'm at the end of my mental capacity for troubleshooting. First thing I want to mention is that if there is an appropriate category for this, please forgive me. I cannot find one for reaching out for help.
Asus Crosshair Formula V Motherboard w/ X-Fi 2 and THX TruStudio PRO
Radeon HD 6870's running in Crossfire
AMD x8 processor (Black Edition, can't think of the exact name right now)
16GB G.Skill RAM (4x4GB)
Seagate 1TB HDD
That should cover what you really need from that end...if not just let me know. Also, I am running the latest drivers for everything.
I'm running a Toslink connection from my motherboard to my Logitech Z5500's for digital surround sound. Everything works absolutely perfect (minus the fact that some games who claim to support Dolby Digital won't output it via Toslink..but that's for another day) minus one hiccup I cannot figure out. I have a Fatal1ty gaming headset (3.5mm) I want to use...everything is set up to mute when I plug it in and all of that good stuff; however I get NO sound when plugging it in to my mobo OR the headphone output on the speakers. My main question is this: Is this caused from the headphones being analog? If so, are there any digital one's I can buy or would USB enabled work? Do any of you guys use a similar setup? Please help! I've been working at this for over a month (haven't missed my headset until recently).
I'm reaching out to the MPC readers because I've been with them since I was a kid (my Dad started me) and I trust you guys. I appreciate any and all help.
