I have a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS sound card, and a 5.1 speaker system. I will be getting a small HDTV soon, and want to use my speaker system. the TV has an optical output, which I would need to have go into my computer. my sound card does not have this, so I was wondering what the best way would be for me to get this to work. if ther is another card that has an optical input please let me know, because I cannot find any. any ideas would help. Also, what is S/PDIF and is an optical SPDIF input the same as optical in?

i can't remember, but i think the optional drive bay for the card has an optical input. Google it...

try ebay.. those expansion bays always go for cheap.

SPDIF is really the same as Optical SPDIF (Optical In). The only difference is how the digital signal gets sent (optical vs coax).
