Using a PC's digital optical connection as an input
I have a few queries about the optical connection on my PC. Firstly while computer literate, i have never used optical connections before. I am trying to use it as an input from my samsung screen/tv. Is it physically capable of this or does it only act as an output?
Secondly, when i go to my audio mixer and click devices there are 2 devices I can use. SPDIF OUT Creative SB X-Fi or Digital Output Device (SPDIF HD Audio Device). I assume one will use my onboard sound card to process the data and one will use my X-Fi card.
