Connecting Durabrand SA51AR to computer

When I opened up the box I couldnt believe what I was looking at (the leads that is). It states that its ideal for dvd players, home computers and games consoles! the cables are not the right connection for my computer, as they are red and white connectors. do I have to buy a new set to connect the speakers to my computer, or is there any possible way to connect these speakers to a computer?
my computer is capable to connect 7.1, but the sockets at the back is as follows including colour of sockets at the back:

Line in (blue), front speaker out (lime), side speaker out (Grey), rear speaker out (black) and centre/subwoofer (orange), Mic (pink).

can you help?

    Thanks again

Each "red and white" represent a stereo pair (Right and Left respectively. What type of connectors are on the SA51AR? I will guess TS (tip sleeve) or Phono for the sake of this answer.

It sounds as if the PC's outputs are stereo TRS (tip, ring sleeve) 1/8" female connectors, which is normal. TRS connectors carry both the Left and Right signals whereas Phono and TS only carry one signal each.

Radio Shack has converters which will allow you to plug a "red and white" connector in one end (either TS or Phono) and will provide a TRS output on the other which will plug into your PC's sound outputs. That way, the Red/White pair for "Side Speakers" (front L/R) can plug into the one grey jack and the Rear (rear L/R) can plug into the black-jack, etc.

How can i directly connect a LG H30 TV, or a PS3 or a Wii to a Regent HT391 sound system? Is it possible to? So far the only 'surround sound' I can achieve is by connecting my tv thru the cable box...


According to the various vendors that carry this model, the unit has multiple inputs to accommodate gaming systems, dvd, tv, etc.

Look on the back of your system and see if there are inputs labeled as Game, DVD, TV, etc. You should be able to connect each component, and use the remote to switch between the multiple sources.

Good luck.

Need to know how to make the surround sound work through regular T.V. with durabrand surround HT-3915


Your regular TV set must be able to process the surround encoding through its output to where the Durabrand is taking the sound from.

Also, if you are using the TV set on a converter, Cable Box, or Sat receiver, and you are not taking the output from the component output there will be no surround from the source.

Surround sound is critical to how it is processed and applied.

Remote control or universal remote that works on my durabrand home theater system 2004 model # HT 3915


The easiest thing to do would be to go to an electronics store, look on the back of the remote control package and look for Durabrand.
It should come with a booklet with the setup codes.

Thats all I got for now.

Hope that helped, good lukc, please rate.

Based on your description, your Television has stereo outputs. Multiple channels may be "encoded" into those outputs, but your home theater system would need to interpret these encoded channels through one of its pairs of inputs.

I would try plugging the 5A51AR's Right/Left (Red/White) "Side Speaker" inputs into the TV's stereo outputs and see if the unit provides output to all speakers. There may be a switch on the unit labeled "Surround-Decode" or similar which needs to be set for this type of operation.
