Probably a dumb questions, but here goes.
In short: How do I get 5.1 sound out of my PC?
I plan on taking the output of my sound card into my receiver. I have two cards that may work. One is a standard card with 1 line out jack. If I'm getting 5.1 sound in through my TV card or from playing a DVD , will I get 5.1 out through the line out on my audio card?
Or do I need a 5.1 audio card? I do have a 5.1 card also, but it does not have a line out. Just outputs for each of the 5.1 speakers, which obviously will not work going into my receiver.
Or maybe I need a 5.1 card with a line out jack (something I can't seem to find)?
