  • Where can I get a radeon audio cable?

    I dont wanna pay $20 for a cable that should either be standard or come with the friggin card.

    I have an ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon 9600.

    The cable I am talking about is so I can use the 5-channel option on my soundcard and still have use of my tv-tuner. Since the tuner needs an input and using the 5ch option on removes the standard method (all input jacks become output jacks in 5ch mode), I decided to take the advice of some of you and use the cd-audio jack on the board.

    There is a similar jack on the card, labeled audio-out. Similar, but not exactly the same. It's slightly smaller so none of my cables fit. ATI wants $10 for the cable and $10-$20 for shipping.

    Here is the cable:

    Looks like just a standard cd audio cable. Try here:

    If thats not good just go to pricewatch and search for "cdrom audio"

      its not a standard cd-audio cable.

      but, nevermind, the local computer shop had one. apparently, the connector is for OLD soundcards, and ATI cards. nothing else uses it.

        Yup, I used a universal audio cable, it had 3 different connectors on each end. Some soundcards still use it too, I have a card with a C-Media chip that uses it.
