I would like to hook-up the video and audio from my Dell computer to my Onkyo Receiver TX-SR605 receiver and thus a 7.1 surround sound system hooked up to a Samsung LN-T5781F 57" LCD Flat Screen. The purpose is to play video games, saved on my PC, I have onto the LCD Flat Screen with possible surround sound. I would like to plug both video and audio into the receiver then have one HDMI output to TV.
Sound Card: Creative SB Live
Video Card: Radeon X1300/X1550 Series
1- What is the best audio/video cable connection configuration to do the job. Attachment shows a picture of the back of my computer (sound card on top and video card on bottom)?
2- Do I have to change the sound card to transfer 7.1 surround sound to receiver?
3- Do the PC games have to be in surround sound? How do I know if they are?
The Onkyo receiver has the following inputs:
component video in
Optical Digital in
Coaxial Digital in
