Xbox 360 sound through X-Fi?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to get the Xbox 360 sound to go through my X-Fi input then output through my desktop speakers (Logitech Z2300)?

I have the video hooked up through component to my Dell 2407WFP...just have no sound.

Maybe if you get an RCA, or whatever the audio interface of the Xbox is, to a normal 3.5mm jack input converter, you can input it through line-in then turn up line-in volume in Windows Playback and enjoy

I think it is called TOSLINK or S/PDIF? That comes out the 360.

I dont think that will work if you are using the Hi-Def cables ( i cant remember which one is audio )

if you arent using the HD cables but the standard ones (red, white and yellow... Red being Right channel and white being Left and Yellow being Vid), then yes, This will work.

However, im not sure of what the quality of the sound will be. mabey slightly less as crisp or something. lol, i really dont know alot about the x-fi's

Hmm, if it's S/PDIF, that being digital sound, then you should be able to plug that into the X-fi's microphone port, then using a program such as THX Setup Console, change the function of the "Flexi-Jack" to S/PDIF.

It's worth a try

In the Instructions that came with the 360 it says to use the White and Red for audio with the 3 components.

But the microphone port is 3.5mm?

Do I have to get an S/PDIF to 3.5mm converter then put that in to the microphone (isn't microphone mono, 1 channel?) then set the software in Windows to output the microphone?

Is there any possiblity of an external decoder or something along those lines so the 360 can go straight in to it and then I can connect the output of the decoder to my speakers and have my computer go through the decoder too? Or doesn't it exist?

I'm pretty sure you could put the S/PDIF into the Microphone port.. although i wouldn't know since I've never even seen an S/PDIF plug lol. Anyway, all I know is that you can DEFINITELY change the Microphone port's "behaviour" if you will in the THX Setup Console which comes with your X-Fi drivers.

There's two choices: Microphone/Line-In and S/PDIF.

Like I said earlier, it's worth a try. Just see if it fits in, if it does, great, change the mic port's job to S/PDIF.

ive done something like this before but it wasnt a major console, plug the headphone end in the "digital input", i dont know how the x-fi is as i dont have 50+ cash to buy a sound card

yeah you can put stereo white/red in via the LINE IN using a rca
The coax digital = whats on the X-fi <- i used it once so i'm sure about that. (don't know if the x360 has it),
You can use an rca adapter (or order a "special" one @ creative)
(the mic input on the back is a combination of digital in and mic) if you want to use optical signals, you will need an front bay or an S/PDIF to 3.5mm converter and plug that into the mic port......correct me if i'm wrong
