I'm going to connect my computer to the projector, so I can use the projector as a second screen, and just drag VLC player over to that screen, and play the movie.

 The problem is the sound.
I got a dvd player with a 5.1 surround.All I want, is the speakers to work when I play the movie, I don't need them to be connected to the computer.

But how exactly do I connect the dvd player to the projector/pc and bringing the sound with it?

 I've got a ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. SABERTOOTH 990FX (AM3r2) motherboard, with a intergrated sound card to it.
Here's a picture of the motherboard if that's relevant  ( ).

Here's a picture of the backside of the projector. ( )

The Philips dvd player connections:
6 special connections for the speakers.
- L & R audio in (AUX).
- Scart
- Video out P1, Y, P0

As I've said earlier, I don't care if it's connected to the computer or the projector, as long as it plays 5.1 surround when I start the movie.Thanks for all help!
