I have a very basic 5.1 home theatre(f&d 3800x) and i have connected it to my led tv. I notice that the surround sound effect is missing. I searched on the web a little and i saw i had to use an audio card or something. The basic problem is i also have an extra active subwoofer connected to the home theatre. How can surround sound be achieved ?
(I'm a complete noob in all this, my parents just gave me $200 for the setup but i still want the best for it.)
 
Sorry to tell your this F&D is not what you need.

F&D manual clearly shows (looking at the back panel says it all) it can only accepts discrete 5.1 analog input. TVs (all TVs) cannot output discrete surround signal. You need a sound system that is compatible with HDMI ARC (if your TV has this) or has Optical Input. All TV except the very super budget should have an Optical Output.
