    Hi,

    I've just bought the VideoLogic Digitheatre (not DTS)(http://www.videologic.com/Products/VL-60382/ProductIntro.asp?Product=VL-60382) to watch DVD movies in 5.1 surround sound. I want to connect this to my PC and my soundcard does have a Digital Output.

    I have the Santa Cruz Turtle Beach soundcard found in Dell PCs (http://www.voyetra-turtle-beach.com/site/products/santacru/specifications.asp). Heres my problem - I'm looking for a digital COAX cable to connect my digital output to the Digitheatre receiver. This needs to be 3.5mm at one end for the PC soundcard, and standard COAX at the other. The 3.5mm socket on the soundcard is not optical.

    Where can I find a good cable to do this? Also, would a standard phono->3.5mm adapter work?

    Thanks to anyone who help me out with this at all.

    Hendo

    I have a creative dxr3 for dvd playback from my pc, it has a coax digital socket and a 3.5mm socket next to it, the coax being for outputting 5.1 sound to an amp. The 3.5mm socket only outputs in stereo (or pro-logic) not 5.1 sound, I have never heard of 5.1 sound being outputted from a 3.5mm jack.
    I could be wrong though.
    Try posting this question on the Home Cinema pc (HCPC) section below.

    Thanks - I hadn't noticed that forum before.
