Hellooo.. I'm ever so confused. Help please. I have my PC (which has no optical output as far as i can tell O.o) connected to my flatscreen with a HDMI cord, I then have connected the TV to my surround sound with an optical cable. Will this work? Will this work well?? Do I need to have both computer and tv with optical outputs in order to achieve the sound i want through my stereo??

Everything I've been able to find so far has suggested I must hook up PC directly to reciever using an optical cable, which would leave me SOL i guess since that's not an option with PC. Help Plzzzzz cool.gif

Add a USB sound card such as Turtle Beach Audio Advantage Micro II.
