Hi, I've been looking into the forums and all over the internet and I couldn't find any info about this.
I would like to know if I can connect my Headset (Optical audio) and a 5.1 system (5.1 jacks) to this sound card (Creative Sound Blaster XFI 5.1) and get sound simultaneously. I want to turn on the speakers and get sound without changing anything in Windows sound settings. Is it possible. If not, is there any other card that support this? (internal or external, i dont care). Stereo Mix is not a solution, I don't like that delay.
Thanks, and sorry for my english.

No, you can't have both optical and analog out from the same sound source at the same time. As far as I know there is no solution that would support this. You'd have to toggle back and forth from the control panel.
