Setup for watching downloaded movies

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi.

I am not sure what i should be setting up for watching downloaded movies, i have looked at the movie properties and most are just 2 channel.

I was going to setup a laptop to my projector to watch these movies but am unsure of the audio setup i should use, if i use a usb sound card with 5.1 sound will i get 5.1 sound if i connect it to a receiver and speakers or just stereo?

The room i was going to set this up in is just 8.5ft x 12ft so i was thinking a soundbar may be a better choice, the main question is can i get 5.1 sound from the movie source.

If the movie source is ac3 2 channel audio, then no. What you want are bluray rips that have support for DTS and 5.1
