I'm listening to Dire Straits on my M80s-the sound is great, don't get me wrong. But I really want to play XBOX, which requires that I turn off the music. Thus far I have been unable to command my hands to operate the remote to change my AVR input.

Have any other Axiom owners had the same problem? I'm going to try to switch between songs-I'll let you know if that works for me.

Damn it all! The song switched whlie I was reading a thread and I missed my chance. My speakers are holding me hostage. This is sure to be an international incident. I'm calling the Canadian embassy.

I've been stuck listening to Pink Floyd, of all things. And I'm not even that partial to Pink Floyd!

I take it your kidding around, but what game do you want to play? Original Xbox or 360?
I'm sure you know this, but a lot of the games will let you rip the music to your Xbox and play the game choosing your own tracks.

Rip music nothing, All my music is stored on my file server. With the beauty of Windows Media Connect (free) I now have access to all 12,000 songs via the Xbox 360. I can replace game music with anything I desire, it's easy, and awesome at the same time

I remember, back in the day, when playing MP3s was slightly taxing to a computer's processor. Playing a game at the same time as listening to MP3s didn't exactly do good things to frame rates.

How times have changed...

I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

For the most part, this was more a function of the operating systems that were in use.

Having designed many hardware devices built on "processors" built in the last 2-3 decades, they were rarely the issue.
