Hey ! i have a home theater for my xbox, which my xbox is set on the toslink input, i want to get my computer to work with all 5 speakers, for now i only have the main column working (plugged the pc with normal jack output.) my computer has a numerical output on it, is there something such as a coax to hdmi converter ? as the only input remaining on my home theater is the HDMI one, i'd like to know if it is even possible. thank you.

First, what do you mean by "numerical output?" S/PDIF coax?

Second, what kind of computer is it? It might be easier to add a sound card with HDMI output to the computer.

You should be able to add HDMI functionality to that machine. Ask in the HTPC forum. I'm not up on the latest ways to go about it.

Yes:

but this won't solve your problem because its HDMI output will just be based on the stereo coax output from your PC.

Your true problem is that the music player software that you are using is not outputting a surround signal.

Your best over all approach is probably to obtain a display adaptor card with a HDMI output and integrate it with software that outputs a true surround signal.
