Audigy 2 sound question.

Since I want to hook up a WDTV Live HD media player to the optical input via a TOSlink cable, I was wondering if this setup will run an AC3/DTS 5.1 digital signal to the three speaker outputs of the card?

I think the optical toslink input on the audigy2 only handles pcm stereo inputs, the soundcard cannot decode dts/dolby digital/ac3 via the digital inputs.

Thanks for your answer.

I want to run this signal to the speakers but I don't think the sound card can decode the AC3 and DTS sounds or accept 5.1 digital or analog sound.
