Decode Sound External Dvd By Software / Sound Card Pc

I was searching through the internet to find an answer to my problem.

Maybe you can give me some answers?



I would enlarge my home cinema system from 5.1 to 7.1.
I have a great receiver almost 2 years: LUXMAN RV-491 which has many analog and digital inputs and outputs. The decoders inside can decode a DVD signal
in Dolby Digital (or DTS) in 5.1 channels.
This receiver is also prepared with 7.1 analog inputs (output from external decoder).

Because I'm a computer minded person and I don't want to by another expensive receiver/decoder set top box, I want to experiment with my computer.
At this moment I have a Creative Live Player 1024 sound card, but I want to buy an other card which can deliver 7.1 sound to my receiver (M-audio Delta 410 or Hoontech Media 7.1 or Hercules Game Theater XP 7.1).
I have looking through the internet and I read many reviews.


What do I want to do?

I want to send the sound of my external DVD player by digital output (s/pdif or optical) to the digital input of the soundcard (rack). The decoding of Dolby Digital (or DTS) should happen through my PC (sound card / software).
Afterwards the decoded signal can be send to my receiver to be amplified.



Can I use f.e. PowerDVD PRO EX or WinDVD 4.0 to decode the digital signal without using an internal DVD-rom?
If not, maybe other software?
Maybe it isn't possible yet. Something for the future or totally unreal?



Hopefully you can give me satisfying answers.

No, not at present.

Exactly, answered your own question ;)
