A sound device is a dedicated board the fits in a free PCI slot(inside the PC) and produces all of the sounds once connected to a set of speakers, hifi unit,some newer PC's come with built in sound cards

not all cards are the same quality some are standard stereo and some are full theatre quality(dolby,THX etc)
so its wise to find a solution for your needs as many aspects of newer cards may never be needed

maybe you have a sound card in your system and have not yet installed drivers if you right click on my computer(on desktop) and use the properties in the menu,you will see a new box ,goto the HARDWARE tab and then the DEVICE MANAGER tab
click the + next to sound,video,gamecontrollers

if u see any mention of an audio device right clickit and select UPDATE DRIVER

but remember a sound card must be connected to speakers or a hifi unit to produce the sound

Use your computer speaker as the sound device or use a headphones.

If it sounds good, it could just be your cable that goes to the receiver.

( using a Y cable to connect to one of the regular audio inputs.)

I have this exact same problem... audio I loaded on through itunes play perfectly... songs, audiobooks, podcasts, etc, as well as input from my TV and the build in FM radio, but anytime you try to use any 3rd party radio app on the iphone, you get like 2 seconds of audio and then nothing, and the app usually has some text that says, "No Volume Available".
From research, it seems that the iLive company is to blame as they did not update the firmware to work correctly with iOS 4, so it is their problem and not the iPhone. I am returning my device and getting another brand that supports iOS 4

How can I connect my Onkyo TX-SR507 to a PC to play MP3 files


The easiest way is to use a 1/8" stereo to dual RCA cord and connect the output of the sound card to an AUX input on the receiver. These cables are readily available and cheap. You shoul dhave 3 mini jacks on the back of the computer related to the sound card setup.

1) Audio input mic
2) Audio input line
3) Audio output line

Connect the receiver to the audio output line jack.

Noise coming out of speakers connected to Denon AVR 1908


Check for nearby wireless devices and move them away. -If the audio output from the source device (i.e. DVD, CD player) is digital (i.e. PCM, DTS or Dolby Digital) you're on your own. I'd be willing to bet the output is analog (red and white RCA), because the "beeps" and "exploding sounds" you describe seem like it could be caused by interference. Try replacing the cables. Otherwise the issue is probably with your receiver.

Did you use Midi files when creating the Sound Track? If so your encoder may not have had the software to translate the Midi to the Mpeg2 sound track. Will it play back on other devices or just the Yamaha?

I'm assuming that these are not the usualy 1/8 inch jack earphones... are these usb earphones? if so (if using xp) check the settings in the control panel/sound and audio devices/audio tab...then in the "sound playback" section, see if the headphones are given as an option...if so select them and hit okay. Make sure that there are no audio applications open when switching. Hope this helps.
