it looks that way - i dunno what you're supposed to do if you want to use the mike whilst gaming in 5.1 - is there not a mike input on the front?

it seems to be a trend amongst hardware designers to double up the 'ports' like that - for instance, on my netbook, the same jack socket is used for headphones and mike. you have to buy a special gizmo if you want to use both at the same time. is it really an economy thing - how much money do they really save by not giving us extra sockets?

don't worry, you shouldn't break or fry anything if you stick it into the wrong hole...


------------------------------------------

*edit* re-reading your post, you haven't got three inputs? speaker sockets are 'outputs'. maybe i'm being pedantic, but there is an important distinction.

That's correct. But you should try not to confuse inputs and outputs.

By the way, did you see Stormy's reply to your other question? ;
