    Audio coming from PC. The best option.

    To put this as simply as I can, I'm trying to get the best audio I can from my PC. Is there a difference between HDMI audio to TV, then ARC out to receiver, and HDMI audio out to TV > optical to receiver? Or should I not do any of that and send audio from PC via optical directly to receiver?

    A50 DTS to Dolby 5.1?

    Hi, I have recently bought the Astro A50 headset. So far I'm loving it, but it seems my mobo (Asus P8Z77-V) doesn't support Dolby 5.1, only the DTS stuff. Is it possible for me to get the full 5.1/7.1 effect without buying a new sound card? Can I, if I have to, get something external to do it...
