Re: Dolby Digital

Go into the control console for the creative sound, see if you can adjust the digital output for dts. you may have to activate it. use the internal or external decoder..i do believe the logitec speakers have the decoder in it. i have a set also, and they decode bolth ways, love those speakers. only difference is i use the audigy card.try what i said,good luck.

Can i use 4.1 speakers for my hcl p2102 laptop?

U can use 4.1 speakers with HCL P2102 by connecting stereo pin splitter in Line out and then connecting front and rear spkers.

But U will not get 4.1 surround sound effect as sound card supports 2.1 spkers only, so it is advisable to connect good 2.1 spkers.
