Stereo speakers on a PC

Hello,


I was wondering if any one you use a stereo speaker system on your PC.

I'm looking to go from PC to an AVR to an LCD TV with the goal of watching movies from my PC on my LCD TV using the stereo's speakers.

My plan is to connect from my videocard's HDMI out into the receiver, and from the receiver's HDMI out into the TV (1080p)

What ya think?

Plenty of people do this.

I use optical but you should be fine doing it that way.

Yes. I've done quite a bit of reading these past couple of days. THE HTPC is by no means a new concept, but it seems that plenty of uninformed people are still wasting their money on PC speakers. High quality AVR's and amps are cheaper than ever... and more sophisticated than ever.

I'm kinda thankful that my 10+ year old PC speakers crapped out on me. It forced me to see the light, so to speak. LOL.

I right click on a file and hit "play on TV," but I have a networked TV/receiver. I'm sure it would work fine with an HDMI cable too.
