    This is possibly a dumb question but here goes ...

    I have a sounblaster live audio card with the following back connections

    Analogue/Digital out (connected to my surround speakers)
    Line in
    Mic in
    Line out 1 (connected to my surround speakers)
    Line out 2 (connected to my surround speakers)

    I need to use a headset for openwengo/skype ... I have a headset, the mike lead I plug into 'Mic in' and it works a treat, the earphones ..... ?

    Is there a way to split the 'Line out 1' output so I can connect my earphones to it ? (According to docs Line out 1 can also be used for headphones).

    Any suggestions

    Cheers

    Dave

    PS USB Headset is unfortunately not an option ...
