    I wanted to connect my Soundblaster audigy 2 digital connection to my amp so I bought a audio Toslink to Toslink and a digital Toslink to 3.5mm mini plug adapter but I cant get any sound. Can someone please help, I looked down the cable and the red light is comming through. Thanks

    Firstly, I wouldn't advise looking into the light ;)

    Does your receiver lock onto a signal at all?? does it show that theres DD or DTS being received?

    Firstly: what type of Audigy do you have? Only the Platinum (and direct variations) have a proper S/PDIF output.

    The 3.5mm socket is purely for Creative's own brand of digital speakers. It might give you a 2.1 signal, but I don't know how you have set it up.

    I don't know how to set this up - I have no amplifiers, etc. (sniff..), but I do have an Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro and I know that the 3.5mm jack will not output Dolby Digital or DTS under any circumstances.

    Assuming that you have a Platinum or above card, and that you have connected the cable to the phono or optical digital out: try and test it with a DVD movie, and make sure that the player is set to S/PDIF Passthrough.

    I think that I encountered this problem in another topic: have a look in the PC Gaming forum here (I think). In there is a somewhat more longwinded version of my response.

    [EDIT]
    Oops, sorry. I just realised that you are the person that I responded to in the other forum and I managed to scare you off with my crappily-worded response.
