Have got an Advent T9306 from Pc world and its great and before you all kick off about pc world my last pc went for six years with only minor probs whilst my mates each were on their third pc's from bespoke manufactures..so there.
Now I have pioneer vsx-d912 av amp which has two optical inputs, seeing the advent has an optical output I connected the advent to the pioneer hoping to use my 5.1 super sound system to play "quake" and cds etc... ummm the pioneer detects a digital input but it dont work.. Have looked around at tools and options in various places..the nearest was in windows media player which had a greyed out option saying i needed something or other to use it.Does ani one have any information on how I can play my pc sounds via my av amp... thanks
advent has an optical output I connected the advent to the pioneer hoping to use my 5.1 super sound system to play "quake" It should be to input not output Is one yellow and other white or is there a red one as well? As these are Analog Connectors
the digital optical output from the pc is coded green the pioneer amp has a digital input not coded. My cd seperate player has an optical digi output and that works with with the amp. I think that because it doesnt work with the pc I must tell the pc what I want to do..ie play the digi output of the pc via the external amp.The amp knows it is connected to a digi source. Um still looking......
