Try getting a 1/8 male plug on each end of cable and plug into the analog in on back of BA735 and the other end into the earphone jack on your laptop.... Sould have your sound with no other update or downloads.... Good luck! By the way you won't need the digital cable anymore...

Digital audio output tv


Digital audio refers to technology that records, stores, and reproduces sound by encoding an audio signal in digital form instead of analog form. Sound is passed through an analog-to-digital converter (ADC), and pulse-code modulation is typically used to encode it as adigital signal. A digital-to-analog converter performs the reverse process, and converts the digital signal back into an audible sound. Digital audio systems may include compression, storage, processing and transmission components. Conversion to a digital format allows convenient manipulation, storage, transmission and retrieval of an audio signal.

Output activity showing but no sound.


Virtual outputs? in Echo console The phones output is Analog 1-2 and the line output is Analog 3-4. In the Echo console, you can choose between the Analog 1-2 bus and the Analog 3-4 bus in the upper right hand corner. In the Analog 1-2 bus make sure you have virtual output 3-4 muted. In the Analog 3-4 bus make sure you have the virtual output 1-2 muted. From within your audio application you can now assign your headphones output and your house (line) output. Hope this is some help.

I would like to connect my computer to my panasonic sa-ht800v unit and hear the sound thru the surround sound speakers


In general, your PC's sound card (and its controlling software) will determine what it can connect to.

Even the most basic PC would have stereo analog output via the typical green 1/8" connector or a headphone jack that easily adapts to RCA pair for analog audio connection. Any Line Level input EXCEPT PHONO would accept the PC's output. The output level would be controlled by the sound card software and settings.

The SA-HT800's single LINE Input would accept the Green stereo audio or speaker output from a standard PC, once adapted. Select VCR.



Find your PC's Sound Controls and enable the applicable input. make sure the volumes of both Inputs and Outputs are turned up.

Though not applicable to theGemini, more-advanced sound cards and audio hardware would have similar adaptable 5.1 or 7.1 (paired) analog outputs and / or digital audio outputs that conform to the s/pdif or Dolby Digital standards.

I have no sound from my BA735s speakers since plugging them into my Compaq with Windows 7.


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this
right click to install driver also
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
if his does not fix the problem

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps

Trying to connect BA735 speakers to a MacBook? No sound? Are they compatible?


Those speakers were originally supplied with Gateway computer system that had sound cards with digital outputs. While some versions had analog and digital sound inputs, most often the speakers had digital input only. The on-board sound in the eMachines is analog output only, so the speakers are most likely not compatible with your computer. If you want to use those speakers, you will need to locate a PCI sound card with digital output.

It's a matter of the output from the computer's sound card (built-in) being incompatible with the speaker input. The card is sending out analog sound wile the speakers are expecting digital input. Downloading a driver won't help because that doesn't fix the root problem. You need to get speakers designed for analog input, or a sound card with digital output. As it stands now, your computer just can't use those speakers.

Since your using a MacBook there is no option for this Pci Digital Sound Card.

Won't work with new computer


I would suggest going to START>Control Panel>Sound HQ(or something similar, like Sounds and Audio Devices etc). From this point youll want to make sure, under the Sounds or Output tab, that your Boston Acoustics are selected. If theyre not listed, try to pick whatever it is your plugging into(Say a jack thats on the computer, look for something like "Internal Port" or "Dell Ports" for your computer name.) Please PM or send me an email if the problem persists

I have a pair of Boston Digital BA735 speakers that wont work on my toshiba gs6000 laptop. I dont know if my soundcard only supports analog output. I dont see an option for digital output in windows 7 or...


These are Digital speakers and not suitable for Toshiba satellite units. Most sound cards in the L series are analogue only. So your own Diagnosis was on the money.

Analog mode unfunctional


Dear kaarlo125

In regards to your card not working in analog mode the card can only do analog or digital not both. So for analog to work you will need to turn off the digital mode. You should be able to do this in the Audio HQ. There should be a check box that you will need to uncheck. However it is been awhile since I had my Live card working so I am not directly sure where it is at but if you have trouble finding it let me know and i can set the card up on my test system.

As for the speaker test there is not a real test for digital speakers because the audio is a compressed signal. Now there has been AC3 files rigged to work like a speaker test but this was not avalible with the Live card.

Let me know if you still have trouble. If you do I will need some more info:

Make and Model of your speakers.
Model of the Live Card (Also did the card come with your computer.) The link below will show you how to find the model number on the Live card.
