    I am going to move this to the computer and HTPC area.

    You can run off the output of your computer through either the S/PDIF (coax or toslink) or your audio card's output to your receiver or pre/pro combo. You then take the output from one of those to the speakers in your setup.

    Yes, if you can post a picture of what you are referring to.

    If you have a S/PDIF out from your computer's audio card that is a coax or toslink. If you have a coax that you are using just plug the other end of the coax into the input on your receiver like you would a DVD player.

    Once you have done that select the device that you have your coax plugged into and you should hear the audio from the DVD player. If you don't you may have to go into the audio section of your computer and tell it to use the coax outs from your computer.

    What type of computer/sound card are you using and what are you using for a receiver?
