<font color='#000000'>To connect coaxial digital to your Altec lansing 251 is not really possible. The coaxial connection out of your DVD is a digital signal whereas your speaker inputs are 3.5mm analogue stereo pin plug. Not sure what model your DVD player is but I'd be very careful hooking up PC speakers to a DVD player or amp. The ohm rating on your PC speakers will be very different to normal HiFi speakers. I assume you have not got 5.1 HiFi speakers or a digital amp so to get your 5.1, I'd get the PowerDVD program for your PC (Which decodes DTS and 5.1 very well) and play your DVD's thru your DVD-ROM with your 251's hooked up.
