Does anyone know of a good way to hook a SBlive 5.1 to a home theater receiver and what cables I'll need to do so? My receiver has analog and digital connections as does my SB Live!.

Thanks for the help!

PS. I also have a SB Audigy, I never liked it because of all the software it bloated my system with but would it be better sounding in my entertainment system pc?

Just connect the digital ports on both your sound card and receiver using either a coaxial cable or an optical fibre cable (depending on which type of digital interface your equipment got). One cable will do the trick for carrying the 5.1 channels of audio data.
