How can I listen to music from my PC on a home theater while utilizing my sub woofer? I have my PC in a different room, hooked up with an optical cable to my home theater receiver. When I play music from iTunes on my PC, the sound only comes out of my main floor speakers and not my sub woofer. Is this possible with regular music tracks?

The sub woofer will come on for movies played off of my Xbox. The receiver is an ONKYO TX-SR607 7.2 Receiver, and my sound card on my PC is an Intel Motherboard DG33TL with 7.1 Audio, S/PDIF Optical.
I have tried all of the different settings on the receiver for audio modes(DTS,Dolby,Stereo,Mono,Surround Sensing, etc). I have tried streaming the audio from my xbox using windows media center.
