How can I connect my computer to 5.1 Audio System?

Postby ryszard » Sun Jul 15, 2012 9:25 pm

Hi I have a computer, slim line which has a built in audio and a 3.5mm jack for audio out. I want to connect it to my home adio system which is 5.1 audio. Now, I've tried to connect through 3.5mm via RCA and I'm only getting two channels as expected. I was wondering whether there are any options to get 5.1 audio on my computer and connect the whole thing up, the only thing is I cannot fit anymore cards in the computer so if it is USB then that's what I'm looking for. I'm using XBMC on the computer (or xbmcbuntu, so if the device is compatible it is perfect). My home audio system has HDMI inputs, Digital SPDIF input, AUX input.
Thanks
