Hi guys,

Here's the situation, I've got a HTPC comming soon and I want to run audio through my AVR, but I have no idea how to do it. I have posted the same question in an older thread but components in the HTPC have changed.

Here's what I have.

HTPC (the important bits)
MSI 880GM-E43
AMD Athlon X4 640
Sapphire 5670 512mb

AVR
An old Denon AVR-1604
w/ 5.1 speaker setup

Now, what I want to do is:
Run video through the 5670 to the TV (with a HDMI cable)
Run audio from the PC to the AVR then to the speakers. How do I do that (where to where, what cable, etc...)?

Thanks,
Mojito

I would have suggested a different MB with a S/PDIF digital out on the backplane but since it doesn't have one there you'll need to use the digital out header pins to go to your Denon digital in.
