How to setup PC to TV 5.1 surround sound (HDMI)?

I have a 5.1 system with a receiver, speakers and sub, in my living room, and i have connected my pc to my projector.

Current setup: PC > HDMI > hdmi switch & audio extractor

hdmi switch & audio extractor > HDMI (out) > Projector & hdmi switch & audio extractor > Optical > Resever

I can get audio to the spekers from the PC. But i can't get real 5.1 surround sound to work. Do i need to buy a sound card and run optical all the way to the resever from my PC?

And if i would need to buy a sound card would it have to have to be a surround-sound sound card or is it just necessary that it has a optical port?
