Connecting home theatre to pc

For a while Im trying to find a solution to put together my home cinema and my pc.Simple reason is to get 5.1 sound from my computer.I have Asrock motherboard HM61-DGS with integrated sound card.Also have an old Creative SB0220 but I hear there is no way for Win 7 to work with it.My Home Theatre is some strange Texoni mark.For now Im getting a sound but no surround.I put together via rca jack.As,I hope it will be seen in a picture, HT has some coax out.And if somebody know which cabl to use to connect together.
Tnx in advance.cheers

Hi goga. Hard to tell from your picture but I think you may only be able to connect 2 channel stereo to the Texoni . A Google search does not provide much info on this home theater unit. The Digital Coax Out on the Texoni is to output a digital signal to another compatible unit. It cannot be used as a input so you are out of luck here

Your Creative SB0220 is an older PCI connection which your motherboard does not support. So even if you could find Win 7 drivers this would not work. Besides, it would not offer surround sound if used with your Texoni.

Iím sure you donít want to hear this but to get Surround Sound from your PC to your stereo you will need to purchase a Home Theater Receiver that offers 5.1 input connections.
