    How do i go about hooking this up to my home theater receiver? I have the onkyo txsr 500.

    Motherboard is ECS K7S7AG

    it is setup from the mobo with front/rear/subwoofer headphone sized jacks...

    any ideas?

    You have possibly 2 options. Your motherboard either has discrete 6 channel audio output, or it has a digital audio output jack, or both.

    If your motherboard has a digital audio output, it will be either a toslink or rca connector, you will need to buy an inexpensive rca or optical cable.

    If you want, you can buy cheaper cables.

    if your motherboard only has 6 channel analog audio outputs, you will need to buy 3 of these: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/show...&St3=50498138&DS_ID=3&Product_ID=119716&DID=7

    Well if it has digital audio output, you should be able to hook that up to your reciever. What kind of audio ports do you have on your computer?
