    ok, so what i wanna do, and im pretty sure its possible, just not sure on exactly how to do it.
    i have a Mbix mini and a laptop with vista, i use it to record all the time, no problems there.

    but what i want to know is, is it possible to use the mbox as my sound card for all outgoing audio instead of just from protools.

    like, say i open up my itunes, or i want to watch a dvd. i want the sound to go to my mbox, and to my monitors instead of through the computers built in speakers.

    how do i do it?

    Just go into the Sounds and Audio bit in the Control Panel, go to the Hardware section and set the M-Box as the default device for everything. You might need to go around and play with the settings for any media player applications you have as well, but that's the gist of it.
