You plug your deck to Onkyo with the analog RCA white/red, correct?
Then you take white/red out of Onkyo and plug it into your sound card with minijack.
You need RCA white/red on the one end and minijack on the other, or regular white/red RCA and adaptor from 2 RCA to minijack. Either can be found at RadioShack.
No optical is involved whatsoever regarding deck as far as I understand your setup.
You might as well connect your deck to your PC without Onkyo at all, less hassle.
Now, if your deck has optical out and you want to take optical in, then you need a sound card with optical in. Once again, Onkyo can be omitted in this configuration altogether.
Third possibility: you plug RCA into Onkyo and you want optical from Onkyo..what's the point?
