Razer Barracuda on TV ?


Standard Member

I have a Razer barracuda hp1 essentially for gaming at the moment : http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-audio/razer-barracuda-hp1
But, I am also the father of a little boy since last jully and because of my wife, I am no more allowed to watch movies with my home theater sound on.

My question is : this Razer headphone has 4x3.5mm jacks for the dolby 5.1 and I would like to use it to watch movies.
The problem is that I only have SPDIF for digital audio (TV, set top box, DVD reader ...). I have the stereo output but I would like to have the 5.1.
Does a little external dolby decoder exist ? something like : SPDIF -> decoder -> 5.1 headphone.

I read this post http://www.avforums.com/forums/headphones-headphone-amps/718636-official-dolby-headphone-thread.html but it seems to be more dedicated to "dolby headphone" what the Barracuda is not.

Thanks for your input,
