ok.... well..... i have 2 audio systems hooked up 2 my computer...... i have the integrated audio which is all threw the mother board.... and then i have my stereo hooked up threw a usb port........ now..... i wanna have it so that if i needed i could jus switch between the 2.... or if i wanna change my stereo to play a cd on it's own and go back when needed.
now here's my problem........ whenever i boot up... it detects my stereo and it plays all the audio that i wanna listen too..... but when i change my stereo to somethin else and back to the usb connection it won't be detected by my os and i don't even get it threw my integrated audio
now.. is there a way that i could get it so that if i do switch that it'll detect and start the usb if i were 2 switch back.. or if it'll switch back and forth with my command???
also..... when i hook it up to a computer with windows xp and set everythin up the right way i can control my music playback with musicmatch with my remote for my stereo.... is there a way 2 set that up too or not??.... it's not too important.... it'd jus be nice 2 have it
if u need any info i'll be checking this forum.. (DUHH).... jus mension wut u need and i'll get to the point of puttin it up on here..... thnx for ur help
i am not able to think up a software solution since it seems rather complicated and i have never dealt with something like that however i think it might work if you added a basic kvm switch or something inorder to switch the USB between computer and cd. It would make it so that you dont have to disconnect the stereo but instead just flip a switch. You would have to go with a kvm solution that has a manual switch as opposed to one that is done throught the keyboard. This should work but there is probably an easier way.
