Help with Sony Blu-Ray laptop!

The laptop has one HDMI out, which I will use to go to my HDTV.

My old Sony audio receiver has only optical in and Coax in. Can I use this product to get optical out from my computer? http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Advantag…0337195&sr=8-8

If I use the above product, will my audio receiver get true digital audio from my blu ray discs in my laptop using an optical cable? That just seems hard to believe, given the cheap price of the product. Thanks!

Sorry for the late respond.

That Turtle Beach product will give you Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 but will depend on your old Sony receiver, does it support 5.1?

Also note that Blu-ray has high definition audio ie DTS-MA or Dolby TrueHD up to 7.1 so you will probably get the core 5.1 only.
