Ok.

I have a problem....my games and music are in STEREO and I have a 5.1 sound system here(I have it connected via rca and it has surround in movies but not games as expected) and I need to get it to 5.1 in games

Heres my sound system http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882005027 in case the link dont work its a lg lht734
(btw it sounds really nice)

I want to connect via its toslink(optical) input from my pc but i dont have a output onboard
im thinkinghttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829118105 its cheap and has the output but would I get 5.1 in games and windows (i already do get 5.1 in movies because its encoded that way but i want it in other things too) with this via optical? or would I have to go with something like this one that has hardware encoding and all that and costs a fortune?

Also would this optical cable work?http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882339102

What games are you playing? Are you sure they output 5.1 SS? Also, make sure the setting within the game are set up to output surround audio.

Just remember, to the MPAA "We're all guilty until..............."
