I have been trying for ages to make my Realtek digital output work, my Realtek high definition speakers work, but not the digital output. I am currently trying to record my gameplay on my pc and I need to hear sound coming through the Reaktek digital output, but it shows the green bars (indicating volume/noise) but when I set it as my default speaker, no sounds comes out at all. I have no idea why it is doing this, I have reinstalled my drivers and updated them but still not working. Unfortunately I don't know what sound card I have, but I have a gaming PC so it cant be too bad. Please give me things to try as its starting to really bug me, thank you.
Might be a dumb question, are you pluging the optical cable into the input port on the headset?
Im not up to scratch on cables dude , I have a pink and green cable and also a USB, I have a turtle beach x12 headset, and I am plugging the green wire into the green socket, the pink into the pink socket and the USB into the USB socket, that's all I know and I have also tried the same on the front of the PC, but it doesn't work, the only sound that works then is the Realtek HD audio 2nd output, and there is a really annoying buzzing sounds on Skype, so I put them all back into the back of the PC.
