I have a surround sound system with my DVD/HDTV setup, so I know that all I have to do is plug them in there. That is in another room.
For the computer, I just got an Audigy2 ZS which I know is 5.1 capable, although my computer has 2.1 speakers plugged in. Here is my question: in order to get the 5.1 sound in the headphones, would I plug them directly into the front of the Tower where the Creative controls are (remote hookup, optical in, optical out, aux in and out, line in, mic in, etc. and there is a headphone jack) or do I plug them in where I plug in my headphones now, which is in a little pod that came with the 2.1 setup and has the subwoofer volume dial on it? I don't currently plug my headphones into the Creative control panel.
