I think you will need to supply more info like, are you using your PC as a media centre ? is the PC next to the Screen ? Do you have the PC connected to the screen ? Do you want to use the speakers on two separate systems (PC and screen)alternatively ? or both together ?

What do you hope to achieve ?

yeh the screens are next to each other. but the pc isnt connected to the screen. i want to mainly use the speakers on the tv but also on the pc when i play games. i want surround sound when im watching tv basically.thanks

Does the screen/tv support 7.1 audio output ?

Does your PC support 7.1 audio ?

As I see it, you can do this by using the TV as a monitor... if that is not what you want to do, I am not so sure.

With the right graphics card, yes you can.
