    or if you want to use the coaxal instead of optical you will need a 3.5mm mono jack to RCA adapter

    One thing to be aware of is that the Creative card won't output more than 2.1 digital sound with this method to anything other than Creative's own speakers. I discussed this more completely (and somewhat unclearly, I must admit) in another thread in this topic (Soundblaster Digital, I believe).

    If you want to have full surround, then use the optical or standard phono digital outputs (only on the platinum or platinum ex, I think) and set your DVD player software to S/PDIF passthrough. Even with this, you will only get sound from DVD movies.

    I wish that Creative had put real-time Dolby encoding into their cards, like NVidia did with their motherboard sound chipset.
