PS3 Soundcard Hookup problems

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
First off, sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but it seemed like it was the best place to ask. Google failed me.

Short version: HOW DOES I HOOK COMPUTER SPEAKURS 2 PS3?

Long version: I recently bought a Samsung 2493HM monitor so I could use my PS3 and computer on 1 display. At first I thought I could hook my PS3 up to my computer speakers (a pair of Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 5.1's) and save money on not buying a home theater system. I use a X-Fi Fatality FPS, which has an optical in/out connection on the front I/O bay, so I assumed it would be an easy "plug and play" type thing. Well, after plugging and playing, I wasn't hearing, even after changing the sound settings from HDMI to Opitcal Out in my PS3. Obviously the PC Gaming gods don't want me switching to console systems, so this is why it isn't working, right? Or am I horribly mistaken that a PS3 can be used with PC speakers?

You should be able to use them. If your PC speakers have an optical in, you should be good to go. Altenatively you can buy an adapter to make the component red and white, to a mini stereo plug that computers use. Thats what I did on my PS2
