I have my xbox 360 hooked up with a left/right audio to auxiliary adapter cable with a female end, and the inside of my soundcard is a female input. I have a splitter that has the male end of the X-230's cable plugged into it, and two male ends one that goes to the xbox 360's female end, and the other male end plugs directly into my sound card.
Problem 1 - When the Xbox 360 is turned off, a crackling occurs on the satellites while listening to anything on the pc. When the Xbox 360 is turned on, the PC's sound is back to normal.
Problem 2 - My Xbox 360 sounds like it is at half the normal volume it would be if it were just plugged in by itself with no splitter.
Anyway to fix both of these to have full volume on both, maybe a audio switch that will work?

Re: X-230 Xbox 360/Computer Problem.
Frist Things first!
1) CHange the input cables for Spks, for another with cooper or gold conductivity.
2) clean ends for dust on inputs.
3) try to reconnect the speakers carefully and test sound.
you can figure out when some sound are bad in any connection on this way.

Most TV's nowadays, have audio out RCA jacks that will allow you to send audio from the TV, to an alternate source. These speakers do come with an adapter that allows you to hook up RCA red and white audio cable, and plug them into the adapter, which goes from the RCA jack to a 1/8 in female headphone style jack. You would then need to get a 1/8 in audio cable that has two male ends, and plug that into the back of your sub woofer in the front speakers port. But this really isn't going to give you very good sound quality being it's not giving you true 5.1 surround sound, even with the matrix feature enabled!
go to Radio Shack or whoever is closest for audio cables, ask for a mini-stereo jack to RCA male jack, it should look like a Y with the stereo mini female jack on one end and two (one red one black or white) old style speaker jacks. These should take care of the audio situation. It might be better to consider adding a tuner or media center to help direct the sound.
If you have a coaxial out on your TV and a coaxial in on your Speaker system that is the way to go to experience digital surround sound. Radio Shack, etc. has coaxial cables in the appropriate size. If you go to Radio Shack, etc. bring along your speaker system's model number as well as your TV's model number.
