3.5MM 5.1ch out to Dolby Digital Pro Logic 2

Hey all.

Kind of a complex problem here. My laptop has a 3.5MM jack out, that i can apparently send 5.1ch sound out of. But i only have a crappy 5.1ch phillips home theater system. It can only do Dolby digital Pro Logic 2. Is there a way i can output audio in such a way as that the home theater system can play the audio in true 5.1ch?

Thanks!

To get [B]true[/B] 5.1 you first need a digital output from your laptop. You say that your receiver “can only do Dolby digital Pro Logic 2” so it’s a moot point anyway.
