Recently my Samsung AV receiver died so I had to dig out my old Sony DAV-S550 to replace it. I'm trying to connect it to PC but it's becoming a real nightmare.
At the moment I don't want to spend money on new AV receiver, so if it's possible I would like to use that Sony one, but I'm not sure if it's possible at all.
On PC side I have 3 different sound cards:
1. Built-in motherboard with 3 jacks
2. Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS with jacks, Firewire (I don't know what for) and digital coaxial (which AV receiver doesn't have)
3. Terratec Aureon 5.1 with jacks and 2 Toslink connectors.
Sony DAV-S550 has plenty of RCA jacks and Toslink connector.
I tried to connect it with a Toslink cable but for some reason it doesn't work.
The only way that I managed to connect speakers through this AV receiver was by 1 jack - 2 RCA cable, but only 2 speakers with a subwoofer are working.
Does anyone know if it's possible and how to connect PC to this AV Receiver so all five speakers are working?
