Just wondering if this is possible, I am moving house soon and will have to put the computer in the lounge and as my DVD player will be there to I was wondering if it was possible to share the speakers with the computer. My computer has 5.1 surround sound though a creative SB Live sound card and cambidge sound works 5.1 speakers and my DVD player supports 5.1 surround sound but needs an external decoder, is it possible for the computer to do this?
I am not sure if it is possible to do it this way or if maybe if I was to instead buy speakers with an external decoder and then run everything though that it might work.
As you might of guessed I have no idea and any help would be gratefully recieved.
I have a SB Live! & Cabridge Soundworks Desktop Theater 5.1 DTT2500 & the speaker set up has a spdif in, so I connect my DVD to spdif in & the computer to analog surround in. this set up works great for me & I get surround sound from both set ups without having to continually change cables. I don't know how the DTT2200 compares but I hope this helps.
