Level 7 Can you tell us which model you have? I think you can connect your home theater directly to your PC or you will need receiver....

Level 6 Cables. One of the following, depending on your speakers input, also you may need 3 or 1 set, again it depends on the speakers.​/700-001.jpg​tereo%20cable.jpg

Level 4 And don't forget to test it with 5.1 source to get output from all speakers. After figuring out the connection issues.

Level 5 It is a bit of a guess, but have you tried with cable 3.5mm stereo jack to RCA? This is the cable you need (as mentioned above):

What you need to make sure before getting 3 of the above cables is to see what audio ports you have on your computer. If you're on a desktop machine is very likely to have Headphones + Mic + Line In. If that's the case you'll only need cables.

This will not work if your 5.1 relies on a power from the DVD, but I think your 5.1 is self powered.

Level 1 I was looking for such information and so pleased to find here. I'm also using a 5:1 Panasonic Home Theatre System DSP-35E and wanted to do same process. Hopefully here mentioned ways will be helpful for me. Perth electricians Thanks.
