    Hey,

    I have my 360 running into the optical input on my pc's soundblaster audigy 2 Zs platinum (then into my speakers).

    Aside from crackling problems I'm having (apparently I just lower the in-game volume), I have realised there is a delay in the sound.

    I took for granted the sound of bullets coming a split-second later for a while, but now that I've tested it with my standard 3.5mm cable and there is definitely a half-second gap, I can't tolerate it!

    Why is this? Is it my 360, or my PC? Can anything be done?

    Although it's a shame to lose my shiny-ness of optical, I will be back onto standard audio cables unless this is resolved!

    Hi I used to have the same soundcard.. but my memory is a bit hazy..

    I think you need to put it on music creation mode... That should kill any latency issues! Plus you should be able to turn down the optical input level, eliminating your crackling!

    I'm sure there is no 'music production mode' on it? This feature is only on the XiFI range as far as i know.
