Question about Dynex DX-LCD37 TV
I have been trying to connect the TV to an external sound card so that I can hear the TV via my surround sound system.
The TV only has a single 'digital audio out' socket, a headphone jack, and some red/white sockets that don't appear to be meant for connections with external sound cards.
The sound card is a creative labs, sound blaster x-Fi 5.1 external usb. My speakers are already connected to the card and the speakers work via the laptop.
I have already: plugged an RCA cable into the 'line in' on my sound card and connected the red/whites to a piece that consolidates them into a single male head - I then plugged that single male head into the 'digital audio out' and the headphone jack. It did not work.
No, that's not going to work. Digital output is just that....Digital. Your trying to send a digital into analog....won't work. Your tv don't have red and white audio out. That's what you hook to, but it still wouldn't be 5.1. Your out of luck my friend. The ONLY way you'll get 5.1 out of that T.V. is to get a 5.1 reciever with CO-AX digital input...the SAME as whats on your T.V. You can only hook-up sound to your X-FI with the line in jack using a y-connector and 1/8" stereo plug....and it won't ever be 5.1. It can't that way. Only way to get 5.1 to work on the blaster is with the tosh-link optical input cable. This too is digital, but uses optics to send it. Remember, you are playing with 2 different formats. Analog with your white/red thing you made and then digital. Digital using co-ax or optical tosh-link. Completely different.....as you now know.
