Cory, I don't know what inputs you have on your receiver, but I do know that there are two additional outputs on the card that have to do with surround sound systems. The third jack from the firewire port is the regular speaker output and the two jacks between that and the firewire are for surround sound.

I have a sound blaster Audigy ZS 2 and a Onkyo 777 5.1 DTS receiver. I would like to take advantage of the 5.1 which is possible both with the soundcard and receiver. Not sure how to go about hooking the card up. any ideas or hints would be great. Thanks, Cory .
