Hello!

I recently bought a home theatre system 5.1 and now im wondering if i could connect my pc directly to the player?

Could i use the optical out input on my mobo to the optical in on the player? it has support for aux too and hdmi.

But would the optical work? since my mobo supports
RealtekĀ® ALC892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC
- Supports : Jack-detection, Multi-streaming, Front Panel Jack-retasking
Audio Feature :
- Absolute Pitch 192kHz/ 24-bit True BD Lossless Sound
- DTS Surround Sensation UltraPC
- ASUS Noise Filter
- Optical S/PDIF out port(s) at back panel

And would this if connected with optical would it give me surround sound if the content im playing supports it?

You can connect by optical out of the pc, or by 2.0 (green) or 5.1 (all) from the back 3.5mm plugs

Optical is marked on the back of the pc. You need an optical cable to go from the pc to the speaker amp. It would provide real 5.1 sound if your audio is that.

Me? I'm just happy with the 2.0 being converted to 2.1 (in my case) or 5.1 (in your case) via the 3.5mm jack. The speaker amp does the conversion/emulation

Very nice. I'm using optical on my first blu ray hometheatre. Better sound. But DVDs are just stereo.

yea i know even when some dvds have 5.1 i seen but what i know all blurays have 5.1 support wich is why i went with 5.1 instead of 7.1.

its awesome just wanted comp connected straight to it for fun i have everything connected together and have media server up for easy dlna streaming etc and can even use blutooth from phone to have it putput all audio etc : )

its always fun to play around and learn and test new things
