    Optical Splitter


    I have a splitter that connects my XBOX360 and my Windows 8 desktop computer to my amplifier. However, when I have both my XBOX and Computer on, the sound does not work.

    The solution is that I turn off my computer whenever I want to use the Xbox. This fixes the problem because it turns off the light of the digital output.

    Is there a way for me to turn off the digital output light without actually turning off the computer?

    Did you try just muting the sound in the PC ? If that doesn't work maybe you can temporarily disable Digital sound from Control Panel /Sounds /Playback.
