  1. I've been trying to get stereo audio out of my PC for days now and was wondering why I can't. The Windows Sonic for headphones option in the spatial sound doesn't turn on and comes up with an error when I try. I have a Gigabyte Z390 Gaming X-CF (https://www.gigabyte.com/uk/Motherboard/Z390-GAMING-X-rev-10#kf) On the back it has the capability for 5.1 surround. I'm just using the line out. Which on this pdf here (https://images-eu.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/D11P1TUWDES.pdf) on page 11, there's a table that says the line out handles 2 channel, up to 7.1. Am I right in thinking that 2 channel is stereo? Left and Right channel? Why can't I still get stereo working? Am I missing something?
  2. On the motherboard? I’ve seen £10 PCIE cards that say they do stereo. Would that work? Docooler PCI-E Express 5.1 Sound Card 5 Port Stereo Surround Sound Card for Office https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07HRTD32Q/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_aeoaFbKB9N049 something like this?
  3. I've been trying to get stereo audio working in my Bose 35 QC II for a while. I've bought a male to female cable capable of carrying a mic signal (https://www.amazon.co.uk/LANMU-Replacement-Compatible-Microphone-SoundTrue/dp/B07PZ5SMP8/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=android+mic+cable&qid=1593864341&sr=8-3), which goes straight from my headphones so I can have a microphone. They then go into an extension (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07QLWQCWM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1), I've had to buy this because my PC is too far away to plug straight into. This then goes into a splitter for speaker and mic, which a friend gave me. Stereo worked fine for them with it so it should with me. This then goes into the motherboard Audio ports. So it goes - Bose headphones > Android mic cable > 3.5mm cable extension > Speaker/Mic Y Splitter > Motherboard. I have a Gigabyte Z390 Gaming X-CF motherboard, which looks like this - https://imgur.com/a/tFtjpmw Right now the Mic goes into the Mic input (bottom right). And the speakers go into the Out (Right middle). Using this website - https://www.audiocheck.net/audiotests_stereo.php - I've tried to see if I can hear the different channels, but I can't. Left and right still come through both ears... I'm also getting an error when trying to enable the Windows Sonic for Headphones in the settings too. I'm stumped.
  4. https://www.amazon.co.uk/TeckNet-External-Aluminum-Headphone-Microphone/dp/B000R5NJD8/ref=pd_sbs_147_7https://www.amazon.co.uk/TeckNet-External-Aluminum-Headphone-Microphone/dp/B000R5NJD8/ref=pd_sbs_147_7 It's not this exact one, but it's similar. I got mine years ago, so I woulnd't know the exact one, might not sell it anymore.
  5. Oh... i put a link in and it said it would be attatched.. It's just a microphone+speaker USB dongle.
  6. I've never been one for the best audio, but playing games that require spatial awareness I feel like it's needed. Hearing footsteps that are behind you is pretty important. Not sure if my friends I play with just have their volume turned way up or because I can't turn on my spatial sound setting in the volume is why I can't hear the same as them. I currently have some Bose QC 35 ii headphones, so I assume they're capable of decent surround sounds/3d audio. It's just what's in between is what I think is the issue. The headphones go to a microphone and speaker splitter, just one that I got from a friend. That goes into a mic+speaker>USB dongle (something like the dongle in the attached link). Which the goes into a USB 3 extension. The reason for the extension, is because the PC is too far away. I'm wondering if I just get a 3.5mm AUX extension, 4 pole, will that enable the spatial sound? Getting rid of all the USB extension and the USB dongle, in my mind, will help.
  7. Don't have a 3d printer, thanks for the suggestion though. Appreciate ya
  8. I currently have a Dell U2715H monitor, with a Dell AC511M speaker, which has two notches on the top that slot into into the monitor on the bottom (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-AC511M-Stereo-SoundBar/dp/B07FZY2MJN/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=dell+monitor+soundbar&qid=1587991198&sr=8-3). I'm buying an AOC CQ32G1 31.5" Curved monitor. I will have new AOC one as the main and the Dell as secondary - off to the left. Does anyone have any ideas about mounting the existing speakers? I notice that the AOC is curved and the speakers won't fit to the bottom. Any other ideas? I'm putting the Dell portrait (due to physical room) would it sound weird to have the speakers on their side? I wouldn't be able to hear positional surround things with it them, but I'm okay with that. I have headphones. Would love some help or suggestions with this. Thanks!
  9. TLDR: Need a way to free up space on NAS. Possibly archiving to tape, but don't know where to start.
  10. ... or any other format which is either cheaper or reliable. Looking to archive my NAS data to a longer term format, so I can free up space on the NAS. So far I was looking at an expansion enclosure for the NAS which I've been pricing up comes to multiple of thousands of pounds. In my mind that isn't ideal because one, that's a lot of money, and two there will be projects on there that we just haven't touched in about 5 years. And for now the older projects will be going onto the tape/other formats, and in the future we will look at expanding through the NAS format. We also had the idea of buying a couple 4Tb external hard drive for about £100 and doing that, but I think the tape/cd option would be better. When it comes to tape archiving I have no idea what I'm looking for so and a google search showed me a million different things which confused me even more. I need some help with: 1. Which format to use. 2. What hardware to buy. 3. A tutorial on how to start copying to the archive format. I think I know what kind of tape to use from watching one of Linus' videos, but as the writable unit. No idea. I hope someone can help! Thanks
  11. Why would I need this black magic PCI card?
  12. Just connected a 4k tv through HDMI to my work pc (GTX 1080ti, I7 7700K 4.2GHz, 32Gb RAM) and I'm experiencing input lag on the tv only. Current I have two monitors setup which work fine with or without the tv plugged in. One monitor 1080p 30Hz, the other 2K, 60Hz. They both work fine, I wanted to tv as an output of the program monitor in premiere, but no it's about 2ms out of sync to the other monitors. It's running at 1080p on the tv, because I'm not currently editing any 4k footage. The two monitors are connected; one via Display Port, the other Display port - Mini Display Port. Also experiencing little glithces and crackles on the DP -mDP monitor too, when plugging in the TV. Can the GPU/CPU just not handle it?
