  • Off topic..sound card input

    Does anyone know how i can input 6 channel optical sound into a sound card, so I can listen to 5.1 surround from my HD reciever on my pc's speakers?

    Is your PC's speaker setup actually a 5.1 surround setup? Or is it just stereo?

    I'm pretty sure you'll have to have a soundcard that supports optical input. The only other way would be to make an input device of your own.

      The output is 5.1 but the optical input of every sound card i can find is 2 channel. They say it's for midi disk input.

      How would one go about making their own input device?

        Well... I'm not saying that I know how to make one... I just figurethat someone has, or would know how to. There might be some other devices... but... it might be cheaper to just buy a set of speakers for your HD receiver.
