So the conventional RCA cables don't support 5.1 surround?

Correct

Standard RCA Cables only transmit two channels of sound, Right Stereo (Red) and Left Stereo (White or sometimes Black). The only way in order to get true surround sound is by using HDMI, optical, or digital coax cables since they transmit digitally. It is also possible to get surround from RCA, but only if your surround amplifier can manufacture 5+ channel sound from two channel sources - like I described above with Logitech's Matrix Mode, etc.

Yes indeed. The only thing I needed to make it work was that optical cable. The coax cable goes right intomy cable box and bam....I have surround sound for my TV as well. ;-D

Now to just calibrate this sucker... :-b
