I have multichannel analog cables already running to my Home Theater receiver. I would like to connect this to my computer for true DVD-audio multichannel playback.


My question is how? I have the basic Soundblaster Audigy 2 (value?) soundcard that says it supports DVD-audio playback. How do I make the connection? I feel clueless!

For 5.1, you can get three 2 RCA-to-mini cables. Since it seems that you already have 6 RCA-to-RCA cables, you would want to look for three female RCA to male mini adapters or splitters that connect 2 male RCA jacks to one mini connector. As to where you can buy these adapters, maybe someone else can point you in the right direction. I must warn you that bass management can be a problem with this setup.

Ok, I got you so far. Now this is a very picky (and likely dumb question) but where do I hook the 3.5 mini's to on the card? which specific connections do I use? Dell apparently failed to send any documentation whatsoever regarding my soundcard with the computer.
