Home Theater PC Sound Card

All, I have an interesting dillema that I am not quite sure how to fix.

I have a 5.1 Surround sound system that I have hooked my HTPC to.

This works great on the out put to the TV and surround sound. The problem is that I also have a second zone on the receiver. When I try to set both zones to be the same input, the second zone is dead air.

What I would like to do is be able to have my sound card output to multiple destinations. To keep this simple, I would be happy if I could get the exact same sound to both sources.

I was thinking about adding a second sound card to the PC to see if that would solve the problem, but I have been reading everywhere that this is not a good idea. Especially since I am mainly using windows media center for all of my sound. It would not be able to output to both cards.

Is there a sound card that can send output to multiple devices? For example, send the 5.1 sound to the theater room, and send stereo to the rest of the house?

I appreciate any feedback you could provide.
