Thanks for the response! I can move the receiver into the computer room, it is actually just in my closet right now. I wll have to check to see if my computer has a digital audio out.,,,I know it doesn't have an optical. Two questions:
1) If I just hook it up with a Y-cable, will I be able to get 2.1 sound? Don't really care about the rears and center at this point.....just looking for two front speakers and the subwoofer. Also, how decent will the sound be with this analog setup?
2) If I were to do your second option with a networked device, what type of equipment would I need to purchase?
Thanks again for the advice...definitely helpful!
