Hi,
   I have a system with an all-in-wonder 128 and a Soundblaster Live.  I want to conect my system to a dolby prologic 5.1ch amp.  Now the All in wonder has a line out on the s-video cable, sound I use that to connect it to the amp or should I use the SB Live I'm guessing the all-in-wonder, but I'm not sure.  I think I lose the prologic signal if I use the SB Live.  If I should use the live what settings should I have it on?  

Thanks in Advance.

You should plug the line out from your vid card into the stereo.  That's the way it was designed to work best.

So it does include the pro-logic coding?

Yes it does, that's why you have to plug into the vid card and not the sound blaster live.

From what I understand yes, because the decoding part of the Vid card is actually pulling the dolby info off the DVDs.  Where as if you only had the sound card in there, it doesn't know dolby from "regular" audio, and it would just re-produce that.
