    Hi,

    I've just bought the VideoLogic Digitheatre (not DTS)(http://www.videologic.com/Products/...roduct=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...cifications.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

    Yes, all you need is a mono RCA to mini jack converter. Maplins and RS do them for about a £1.

    Thanks Jeff - I assume I will be able to get 5.1 surround by doing this....?

    It works all the way up to DTS 6.1 discrete.
