I am currently have 5.1 Sony system. I don't how to make it fully performs 5.1 sound. If I use the wire that converse from 2 channel video to the 3.5 mm input that you normally use for headphone or 2.1 speakers. I don't get the 5.1. It only perform 2.1 sounds. I heard that HDMI carry sound so I wonder if my video card can get one plug to the monitor and the other HDMI plug to the Sony Blue-ray player ? I also try to find the wire 3.5mm input(black, orange, gray) that use for 5.1 but I could not see any of them. I don't know how to make my speaker fully play 5.1 sounds .
*My MSI mainboard does support 8.1 channel but I don't know how to use it for my speaker system as well *
Someone please help me out!!!!
The main question is how to play fully 5.1 sound on computer.
