  1. Hi,
    does anyone have the schema of the connection cable between a digital out of a Soundblaster card and a RCA digital in?

    I'm trying to get the sound from my new media center pc to my Bose audio system...

    Many thanks

    yes, I've tried almost everything... also Google search, but still I've not found anything...

    Someone says it's a mono cable, others a 4 pole minijack... great confusion...

    BTW Creative offers an adapter with 4 pole minijack TO a box with spdif in / out ... :confused:

    Spdif is only any good if your Bose audio system has spdif in.

    What is the exact model of your soundard?

    Yes, I have a Bose Lifestyle 8 system (series 2) with a coax digital IN (I suppose SPDIF)

    My audio card is a sb Live! 24 bit...

    Thanks in advance for you help :)

    You need to be 100% sure about you Bose equipment. If it definately supports spdif then it should be farily straightforward.

    Well, my target is to change my actual DVD player (which has a RCA digital OUT connected to 5.1 Bose full working) with a mediacenter pc...

    So yes, now 5.1 system is working... not sure HOW!!! :dead:

    I mean, I repeat, now I have RCA digital out (DVD) -> RCA Bose connection...
