[QUOTE=Elite Evil;2659767]This is probably a really stupid question but I have spent the last 3 hours or so struggling to get my new (second hand) X Fi Hd to work. I tried with speakers, headphones in different analogue outs and even switched it to a different spare PCIe slot on my motherboard. Eventually I gave up and plugged it into my media centre and tried with my headphones and had the same problem. However the optical output plugged into my AV receiver worked fine. Whatever I try and do it outputs from the optical output and just the occasional click and pop through the analog output.
Please can someone tell me where I am going wrong?
Also the software is an absolute piece of garbage.[/QUOTE]In the sound properties as olyteddy has pictured above, what device did you have selected? If you haven’t tried try selecting the “[B]speakers[/B]” option as the output, Yours probably wont say realtek like above but it will say Speakers. When you set it as digital it runs through the spdif hence why it’s working fine though the optical but not any other.
