True 5.1 Surround using Digital I/O upgrade?

    Hello all,

    I'm trying to connect my Xbox 360 into my computer's 5.1 Speaker setup
    through my SB Live! 24-Bit external card, and was wondering if the
    additional Digital I/O Module would solve this problem.

    The 360 uses Optical S/PDIF as its output source for surround sound and
    was wondering if using the "Optical In" from the Digital I/O would
    retain 5.1 surround if I connected it through my SB external card.

    I'm skeptical since it looks like the Digital I/O uses a regular
    coaxial cable to connect to the soundcard, but I haven't seen it in
    person so I don't know if that is how it works.

    Any help in figuring this out would be appreciated!!
