    My PC speakers have been having issues lately, so I was thinking about getting new ones. Before I did, I was wonder if there's anything out there to hook up my HT setup so I'm able to play games in surround sound. I found this and was wondering if it would work. I'm just not sure if there any way to power a normal HT setup with it. Has anyone tried this type of setup and has had major success?

    If not this, then could something be suggested? Thanks!

    Hmmm, perhaps this should be moved to the HTPC forum, now that I think about it.

    If you want dolby digital or DTS or just want to connect you computer to your HT using an optical cable, then any card with an optical output would work. If you just want prologic, then as long as your pc has a sound card you can connect it to your receiver via the speaker out or headphone out jack. You just need an adapter the goes fron 1/8" stereo plug to RCA. Some sound cards already have RCA jacks.
