Hey all, my first post here.
I have recently decided to build a home theatre
which will include a HDTV and 5.1 speaker
system connected to an amp, the system will of
course, include my PC.
I was wondering how I would connect my PC with
the sub to run through the 5.1 speakers, making
full use of Dolby Surround.
I currently have onboard 5.1 audio, will I need
to buy an audio card? Preferably I would like to
run it through a digital optical cable, are there
cards that have this available and will they
make use of full surround sound?
Another question I would like to ask is is there
a lead with scart at one end and either composite
video (yellow jack) and digital optical at the
other. I realize this question is incredibly
comfusing but I don't know how else to explain it,
basically it is for my freeview box and I would to
run it on 5.1 audio.
Any help would be greatly appreicated.
