Thanks,

There is no software to do this, you need media encoded to it (such as a movie on DVD), a media player that can play it (such as WMP, cyberlink, etc), and a sound device with a Dolby Digital Output. You can obviously replace the DVD and WMP with a game that has a dolby digital soundtrack. It doesn't cost much, such as:

Which provides you with an optical out and the built in encoding chips to transmit the 5.1 audio to your surround sound system.

You would need a surround sound receiver/amplifier. Dolby Prologic is old technology and not 5.1 .

As I said there is no software that can derive this. The closest thing you can do is connect 2 channels to a surround sound receiver and set it to "All channel stereo" which will play out of every channel, but isn't true "surround sound" as you don't get the multi channel effects.
