If someone has a dvd HU or carputer with optical 5.1 output and wants to add a 5.1 DD processor, how do you keep stereo music playing normally and just the dvd's being decoded into 5.1.
Obviously the stereo rcas would go to your x-over, or amp etc. and the 5.1 optical output to the 5.1 processor, but what about after that.
Does the output of the 5.1 go into the amp also?
Can you set up the pc so DVD's only play out of the optical output? And everything else comes out of the rcas?
I'm just very confused on how to do both. or does fm radio sound good in 5.1 and eliminate the need for the x-over?
then there's nothing to worry about.
Any help would be appreciated. Links, or how some of you guys have done it.
