Outputting audio from PS4 to sound card

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I'm trying to figure out why I can't hear audio when using a digital optical cable with my PS4. I hooked the optical cable from my ps4 into my optical cable input on my Creative titanium. I then went into the sound options and checked the box that says "listen to this device". I then changed the settings on the PS4 to output audio through the optical cable and yet nothing :/ I'm stumped. Maybe I have settings wrong on my PC?

Don't use the "Listen to this device" setting as that's a latencyfest in my experience with the X-Fi. You need to go into the Windows sound control panel -> Playback tab -> Speakers -> Properties -> levels tab, and make sure the optical input slider isn't at minimum or muted.

If that fails, you might have to check in the recording tab and check that the optical input's level isn't zero or muted there either

Unfortunately I sold my Titanium HD a couple of months back, but I clearly remember that you could 'monitor' an input directly just by increasing it's level, and that "listen to this device" was an inferior method due to the increased latency it introduced.
