    I have a HTPC equiped with a Soundblaster Live player 5.1 soundcard.

    Does anyone know where can I get a cable so I can use digital sound?

    The manual for the card doesn't say what the socket size is. It's slightly bigger than a 3.5 headphone socket. Any ideas???

    I gather it doesn't have optical out then?

    Are SC's available with coax dig out?

    I have a SB Live 5.1 and use a 3.5mm jack to 2 phono's, standard lead and just plug the red phono into my co-ax in on my amp and I get 5.1, I only found out from here, so as usual thanks chaps..

    Thanks Steve.

    The cable I tried must have had a weird sized connector.

    When I tried a normal phono lead to 3.5mm plug it worked.

    Thanks again.
