Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I have a somewhat weird setup, and I'm trying to figure out the best resolution to my problem.
I have a computer which has a monitor that is plugged in with DVI. The same monitor also has my PS3/360 plugged into it by HDMI, so depending on what I want to do, I just switch the input.
Now, for the computer, I have my surround sound speakers plugged into it with that standard cord with like 3 headphone type jacks. For the systems, since it's plugged into the monitor by HDMI, the sound just comes through the lame monitor speakers. There's no way to currently utilize my computer's speakers.
So, what I was mainly curious about is if I bought a sound card for the computer that has an optical input, can I then run an optical cord from that to the PS3, and then when I am playing a game, get the sound to come from the computer speakers?
Does this make sense? I feel like I should draw a diagram or something.
