Re: Need to connect PC to Sony Home theater

You can connect to Audio Stereo Line IN - Analogue
(I guess your HT does not have 5.1 analogue input.)

You will need 3.5 stereo to 2 RCA cable.
Of course you will not enjoy DD or DTS audio through this.

For DTS/ DD you will need a sound card with Optical/ Co-axial SPDIF output.

DAV-DZ570 : DVD Home Theatre System : Home Theatre System : Sony India

the specs say it has got an analog in, optical in, coaxial in......use the line out (3.5mm to stereo RCA cable) from laptop to the analog audio in of the amplifier.

Interestingly it has also got a mini 3.5mm audio in (front mini) - so you can use a 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable directly between the line out of laptop and front mini in of avr

And yes in case you want to pass DTS, Dolby etc - you need an external SC (USB for laptop) - use the optical or coaxial to pass digital signal untouched

godspeed !!!

Re: Need to connect PC to Sony Home theater

The analog in supports 2 channel only.

I would like to watch HD Movies on my LCD and hence enjoy it in 5.1 Dolby or DTS.

Ok

Which is the Budget soundcard I can get for my System.

My system has PCI slots not PCIe.

I am ready to keep my budget to Rs1000.

Re: Need to connect PC to Sony Home theater

My onboard sound is based on SoundMAX Digital Audio.

It is giving me the option of AC3/PCM SPDIF.

When I use those options I am unable to hear sound from my 2 channel speakers.

If there is anything that can be done please mention it.

Thanks again

see if the SC supports optical toshlink output - then you can use an optical cable to transfer DD/DTSaudio from PC to amplifier.

Please note the realtek chips are generic and have many versions and have multiple HW implementations by mobo manufacturers - so its difficult to say if that can support digital signal out or not.

See if the line out outputs static noise if you are passign dolby 5.1/dts audio selecting ac3 d5.1/dts out - if it does then you can use a minitoshlink converter (spdif interface) and use a optical cable to connect the laptop to the PC

The only other option is to buy a soundcard, I know of none within your budget of Rs. 1000/-, maybe other members will be able to suggest.
fleabay is the only option along with used.
