    thinking of getting an xbox, and hooking it up to my 20" lcd mointor for my PC (as it has 4 AVs) i can just leave it connected on s-video and tab the monitor to s-video from DVI-D when i wanna play xbox...

    the only problem i got is what can i do about sound? i have a 5.1 connected to my PC, and it only has a AUX input left on the speaker's base... so how can i go about getting sound? thanks, bye.

    if it will accept an aux input, then with a suitable xbox adapter you can have optical digital out.

    Does your amp support optical in? and why is it on the speaker's base?

    I'm not a techy person but you can get a cable that, as well as plugging into your xbox and monitor, has the red and white audio connections spurring out of it...stick these into the nearest stereo and voila!!!

    lol geordie jester :D

    yeah all the plugs is on my speakers sub, because it's one of those cheap computer spakers set... and no i dont have optical digital in on it, i was htinking of getting one of those phono leads, and then get some spliters and split the input on the speakers sub, that way i can connect the xbobx to the front left and front right, while still using those r for the computer aswell.... only thin is i wont get the 5.1 sound for xbobx!

    Some amps require you to leave the rear ports alone when only using the front speaker ports - it'll make use of all the speakers then in 2.1 mode
