Could really use some help ;/

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have the following equipment

a Explorer 4250HDC Cable Box from Scientific Atlantic
A HP ZR30w (1 DVID, 1 Display port, no audio)
A Xonar Essence STX

I want to bring the Cable TV signal to my screen (HDMI to Display Port)
I want to bring the Audito to my Computer (????)

I would really appreciate someone making sure I got the cables right:


No clue what to use for the Audio as the Digital Audio cable that came with the Asus Xonar STX does not fit, and while I think my MSI Twin Frozr has a fiber optics port, I've never used that or the 1394 stuff on my motherboard.

use digital COAX http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2

to connect from #4 (in your CATV Photo) to the COAX/Toslink combo port in the back of the Essence for digital audio.

You can also connect from #9 to the COAX/toslink combo port with the toslink cable here http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2

BTW: Both cables will Cary same signal and have same quality, just a matter of cable preference.
