Spdif + Audigy 2 ZS + HDTV + HDMI = Head Exploding! (free PC game for help) -

Hi,First off I would like to thank everyone (like I always do) for any help that they can share,its truly and greatly appreciated(btw I hate always asking for help and not giving nothing in return, so I got 1 Steam copy of Half Life 2:Episode 1 to give away to the one that helps me the most or Ill end up making a raffle or something at the end,it all depends)
Ok, my problem right now its kind of complex(or at least to me because I don't know much about Sound Cards) I got an "Audigy 2 ZS" with the Daniel_K SB Audigy Series Support Pack 3.6 (11/09/2009) drivers and I am trying to connect my Nvidia BFG GTX 280 to my sound card(using the spdif cable that came with the video card) so that the card through a DVI to HDMI adapter can output Video and sound to a samsung LN40B650 40" 1080p LCD TV...but so far no sound at all.
And if I get the sound to work in the LCD can you connect a toslink cable from the tv to a Home theater and use it as the primary sound device?(An example would be:Watching a movie from my pc in the LCD while the sound goes to the tv and from the tv to the Home theater...is that even possible?)
Another thing, I just ordered a 3.5mm to Toslink cable, if I connect the cable to the digital output of my sound card and connect the other end to the tv or the Home theater is it gonna work?
Anyway, what should I do?..what do you suggest?(my other alternative is sending this project to hell and wait for some money in the coming months and buy a new sound card)
I am connecting the spdif cable from the GTX 280 to the CD SPDIF port (can be seen in the following picture top right,left to the Sound Blaster Sign)
