Creative Sound Blaster connections


Standard Member
Im considering purchasing a Creative Sound Blaster sound card to install in my computer but a little confused how to connect the two Tos-link inlet and outlet Tos-link connections

For instance, when abroad I use my Mini computer (no Tos-link) connected to the TV to watch Streaming etc, my TV sound bar has a Tos-link connection but the computer hasn't so what would be the procedure to connect to the sound blaster ?

Toslink/optical connection on the soundbar is an input.

So you would connect the optical output from the sound card to the soundbar input if you wanted audio from the PC to be channel into the soundbar.

If your TV supports HDMI-ARC none of these is necessary the HDMI output of your PC will send the audio over ARC to the soundbar.
