    I just want to know really how you have connected your TV and your PC 5.1 Surround sound system to the decoder.

    I currently have my speaker system (Creative Megaworks 510D) connected to my PC. I am also going to use an LCD TV (Samsung LE26R41BD) as my computer monitor/TV.

    What I would like to do is use the Speaker system for use with both the PC and the TV. I know the decoder will do this but have no idea how to set it up.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    I have the decoder with 7.1 gigaworks speakers :)

    Mine is setup like this:

    DVD Player - Optical
    PC - Coaxial - Digital out, connected with supplied breakout cable. Soon to be replaced by one of these http://www.markgrantcables.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=6&products_id=23
    TV - Analogue Stereo

    The decoder is connected to the subwoofer directly (no switch box)

    The decoder is set to 5.1 and sub set to 5.1-7.1 upmix. This way I get 7.1 through all devices. I just switch modes depending on what I want.
