So, My pc has an Asrock Z97 Anniversary

My home theater is Sony RX100AV
Aka
Center Speaker,2 small ones, and 2 big ones each one containing 2 tweeters and one woofer. So I guess its 5.0 not 5.1 since the woofer is built in them.

Ok to the Question

If I enable Dolby pro Logic in the receiver, and virtual surround on my pc for it, and play such movies, everything goes through the center speaker,and maybe some bass to the 2 speakers, and others are Very very silent..

If I try to convert the speaker wire to aux i ll have an amplification issue so thats not possible. And my receiver only has RCA to aux, not like 3 of those so you get 3 aux's to connect to the pc. Just 1.. Do I need a new receiver which has HDMI so I connect them there and have proper surround?

Here is its manual

your hifi has no multi-channel input, only L/R for VCR. It will infer through prologic magic what the surround should be like from this.

You need therefore to enable stereo or prologic on the PC, not virtual.

Even if I set it to stereo or stereo+virtual surround enchancement, and pro logic on the receiver, still mostly everything sound from the center one
