Hello everyone. I've been looking online for awhile now and been confused on what I need to do. I am thinking about purchasing an x rocker chair. But I need it to play with my 5.1 surround sound and headphones, at the same time (due to wanting vibration on chair while my baby is sleeping with headset on). Not sure which way would be best. But this is what I have at the moment. Any help would be appreciated! Looked into adapters and level lines and now I'm all confused!

So I guess my problem was windows 7 device manager program. I found a way to fix my predicament by right clicking the speaker icon and learning how to use recording devices. I'm now able to use my tv and headset at the same time while still hooked up to the pc. Hopefully when my x rocker chair arrives everything should work out how i need it to. Since I have hook ups in the rear of my tv for audio inputs. So, hopefully now, I don't have to buy any adapters to hook everything up! Here's the youtube vids that I used to fix my problem.

I would check with x-rocker - The vibration motors **might** not work without the speakers being active on the chair. This would defeat the whole purpose if plugging the headphones de-activates the motors, unplug to feel the vibration and then wake the baby.

what sources are you listening to? It is 5.1 sound or all stereo sources. I take it there is no need to have the headphones and surround sound active at the same time.

I would connect the TV to the surround sound, connect the surround sound headphone jack to the x-rocker input and the chair then has a stereo output jack, connect your headphones to this. (This is a pass through to link the x-rocker chairs but you can stick the headphones in there)

I called the store and they confirmed that the chair would vibrate with headphones plugged in. Now my problem is that the headset I have is usb and the chair has no usb ports to plug in for audio. Is there a way to power the headset I provided at the top with an adapter? Any method you think would work would be appreciated even if I have to buy multiple adapters for it to work since I read 3.5mm dont provide power to usb.
