Hello everyone,

I have a DELL Precision M60 with a
I realized that the cable I got with the machine has several outputs:
S-Video, composite video, and also "digital audio" (according to the
piece of paper attached).

It is too good to b etrue, but I'll ask anyway: is there a way to
connect this output to an amplituner (home theatre) and get 5.1 sound?
(or AC3 for divx?)

It would be too much, I am affraid :) 

Thanks,
Wojtek

Looking through the specs on their website implies it is a standard (stereo)
line out.

You could use the Soundblaster Audigy 2 NX USB2 sound card. Comes with a
remote too.

Just realized. Even the cheaper ($50-60) mp3+ external supports digital out.
