  1. Nope.
  2. technically....if you had a device that could decode the 5.1 signal and export it somehow to the speakers you could do it....but in general i'll agree with soundguruman and say that NO this is not a valid option

    if you have a free usb port you could however go buy a usb sound card and connect the 5.1 speakers to that.
