    my amp doesn't do Prologic II, so I was wondering if it was possible to capture sound from a stereo TV source and process it into surround sound (that's a bit better than normal prologic) and pass it out over spdif flagged as DD or DTS (so my amp can pick it up)?

    Motherboards using the nForce2 chipset have on-board Dolby Digital encoding which can do some sort of multi-channel synthesis, not sure if Audigy cards et. al can do that. Maybe there's a software-based DSP but I don't know of one off-hand.

    Yeah - motherboards using the Nforce2 MCP-T chipset will do this. Some Nforce2 motherboards have the have the MCP - these wont do it. If the specs say it has MCP-T or Sounstorm then you wont go wrong.
