Connecting your computer to an amplifier to play music

Do you want to connect your computer to a amplifier or surround sound, and play music from your computer through the amplifier? If that is the case, you will need to get yourself a cable from your local sound shop. Ask for a "Stereo to RCA" cable. Plug the stereo jack into the back of your computer (where you would normally plug in your desktop speakers) and plug the RCA cables into one of your open channels on your amp. Select "CD" on your amp if you pluged it into the CD channel, and there you go

are you trying to use the surround sound for movies or music ? , ive got the dvd version of this system (sc-dv290) and ive noticed the surround sound tends not to perform well with music , but sounds great with movies. i think its because the movies have dolby digital and music does not. The dolby pro logic in my opinion doesnt really make that much of a difference in sound unless the sound is cranked up past 44db on the amplifier. the only cables you need are the ones that are attached to the surround sound speakers and they cannot be removed so it cant be the wiring . I reckon you have a 1 - faulty system 2 - listening to music 3 - maybe not pressing the pro logic button on the sound processor. Hope this helps

No sound through TV


In case you connect the System to a TV set using the Scart Connector, only the video signal is terminated, Audio is actually not wired inside the SB100 Scart connector.
Sound will only be amplified through the system itself (through the satelites and Sub) it can not be utilized as a stand-alone DVD player.
So after connecting your surround speakers the problem will be solved
