Well i got a cheap coby hometheather system and I was wondering withn i plug in my pc into the aux i notice only 2 speakers play (the front right and left and also the sub) my qustion is if i can some how seperate the sound to play in all the speakers. Currently using a laptop xps 1210 with the basic sound card.
I think you need the optical out connection in order to utilize surround sound on a receiver.
Mentaldisorder is right. You have to buy a cable such as this one:
Belkin Optical Audio Cable - NewEgg
To get 5.1 sound from your PC.
I dunno if you have found a solution but the above cable will likely need a DAC like this one to be able to pass thru 5.1 digital to your receiver.
