I think it will work with his SB Live! if he has the appropriate Liveware installed and the digital output on the TV is compatible with whatever input is on the Sound Blaster.
Liveware was a huge pain in the ass though if you had various Creative cards, it's never obvious which install CDs work with which model Card. Having the CT-XXXX number helps when googling it, it's printed somewhere on the PCB.

This is from the setup utility for my X-Fi Titanium. I remember DTS settings on my old Soundblaster cards but I think there were cheaper variants or OEM versions that didn't do DTS.

Thanks for all the info RB, I was mostly just guessing about this stuff.
