[mythtv-users] Audio configuration question (hardware)

I am trying to get digital audio on my system at home but i'm unsure of 
the best way to go about it.  My Tv is connected to my computer over VGA 
connector and a stereo analog audio connection.  Unfortunately the 
manual says the HDMI/DVI inputs do not support PC input.  The TV is a 
Samsung LN-S4092D.  I also have a Panasonic home theater system which is 
fairly old but is capable of 5.1 surround sound (only has RCA inputs).  
Right now I route the audio through the TV and then into the home 
theater system.  My PC has both coaxial S/PDIF and optical S/PDIF 
output.  I would like to somehow use my 5.1 surround sound speakers 
provided by my home theater system but am unsure of what hardware I need 
to do this.  Is my best option to buy a 5.1 receiver and replace my home 
theater system with it?  Or are there other ways I could get 5.1 audio?
