    I thought I'd try this PC home cinema mallarky..but I'm stuck. I have a DVD drive with spdif connected to soundblaster live 5.1.
    I'm trying to get 5.1 out of it but nothing seems to work.
    I have connected the rear of the soundblaster to my amp using 3.5mm to phonos for centre/sub, right and left channels..but nothing is working..
    any help would be appreciated..

    I presume this is the 3.5mm mono jack to RCA (phono) connectors?
