Hey guys and thanks for continually posting awesome information. I troll around and have picked up some useful tips. Thank you for that. The particular problem I am coming across is this.. I have a UD5H, and I just dusted off an older HTR-6130 receiver. It has toslink out, and a digital coaxial out, among other things.
Right now I have about 4 cords strung together from the RCA outputs in the receiver, to the 3.5mm input on the back of my pc. I know I must be losing some sound quality here, but I don't know what to do.
I read what was written earlier about using the proper media player, like Vlc, to be able to use the toslink out. I wasn't able to understand if there was a special way that I needed to enable this, so I haven't tried it yet. My major concern though is that about 95% of the movies I watch are on XBMC, 3% on netflix, and the remainder from downloaded torrents. I'd like to make use of the 5.1 speaker surround sound setup I poured my last paycheck into, but I cannot figure out what my next move is.
Please..please please help me figure out what I need to do in order to accomplish at least a few of my goals. Thanks!
