Need suggestions for connecting Home theatre to PC


I am getting a SONY DAV DZ350 Home theater system and I want to connect it to my PC. This home theater system is of following configuration:

The speakers are connected to the DVD player, which has the amplifier required for the speakers. The DVD player has standard RCA and TOSILINK input. As per the manual the HDMI port is also capable of taking audio signals from a TV. The home theater system supports Dolby Digital and Dolby Pro Logic

I want to connect this system to my PC. As of now my PC has the standard 3.5mm audio outputs of the onboard audio chip.

1. If I hook up the system through 3.5mm to RCA cables will I get 5.1 surround sound?
2. If I use a sound card like Asus Xonar DG or Xonar DX and use SPDIF caple to hook up the system, will I get 5.1 surround sound? Do the sound card itself need to support Dolby Digital for this?

for 1: The answer is no.
for 2: if you use Xonar DX, I believe you will get 5.1 channel output via optical

Asus xonar does not support Dolby Digital and Dolby Pro Logic hardware Decoding , u will get analogue signals via rca or 3.5 mm input . get a sound card that supports Dolby Digital and Dolby Pro Logic hardware Decoding .

Does the Home theater receiver must also have Dolby and DTS certification for the audio to work?

Yes. Home theatre must support Dolby Digital for Dolby Surround sound and DTS Audio for DTS surround sound.

I will try to use the Xonar DX via optical out and see what difference does it make.
EDIT: I could not try it. You need a GPU with HDMI out OP Simple.
