i couldn't tell too good in that photo until i enlarged it and saw the red and white (left and right analog audio inputs), but yeah, that cable zkilla posted with the black single audio out from the computer to the red/white cables plugged into the back of that receiver should work just fine.

edit: but, i don't believe you're going to be getting 5.1 sound then out of your computer through your receiver with that set up.

hmmm, I'm not sure how you could do that.

I know the HT x60 has HDMI in as well, but that seems like the only difference between the two.
