Guy's, Please would someone clarify my thoughts on what's wrong here. I am trying to output 5.1 digital from the spdif on my audigy2 souncard to the dvd digital input on my Sony strdb 930. I found a cable which starts with a 3.5mm jack and splits into 2 phono, I then found a 2 phono cable adapter which takes both phonos into a single phono. This effectively allowed me to connect from a 3.5mm spdif jack output on the pc into single phono digital input on my amp. Well there's no sound going down the line from pc to amp when I play a dvd on the pc, part of me is saying I'm not blo*dy surprised! The reason I'm messing is because I want to try home cinema on my Z1. However, I'm not willing to splash out on PC cable to transmit the picture to the Z1 until I know that I can also get digital output into my amp from the pc. I don't fully understand what you can and can't use (in terms of types of cable and connectors) to transfer a digital signal into the amp so that I can have DD/DTS effectively coming from my pc and being decoded by the amp. Would someone point me in the right direction please..... All help greatly appreciated as frustration is setting in!
