  1. got the card, great picture, smooth playback on me'ol p3 733. 15% cpu usage and all that, problem is I've got a creative 5300 speakersystem that works fine for software decoding in powerdvd but not at all with the xcard.

    I tried connecting the digital out from the xcard to the digital in ( the internal connectors) on my SB live but I get no sound anyway.

    What to do?

    Use the Xcard's Line out to the SB Live's Line in. You'll not get 5.1 though unless you have the Live drive to use (The internal digital in on the sb live only accepts PCM, not dolby digital).
