I was wondering if the audio jack that came with my 2035wm could be plugged into the digital audio output jack of my new computer and therefore have digital audio playing through the Viewsonic monitor's speakers.

It cannot be. Digital audio is different from the analog audio that the speakers use.

As far as the TV audio goes... unless it is the primary source of the audio (tuned through its own antenna and available no where else) why don't you just run the actual primary source's (cable/sat, whatever) best digital audio straight to the Onkyo and skip the middleman that adds nothing to it but expensive unnecessary cable hops.

I'd also run each video sources absolute best video straight to the TV for the same reason.

Can u hook it to a computer for sound


In general, your PC's sound card (and its controlling software) will determine what it can connect to.

Even the most basic PC would have stereo analog output via the typical green 1/8" connector or a headphone jack that easily adapts to RCA pair for REAL audio connection. Any Line Level input EXCEPT PHONO would accept the PC's output. The output level would be controlled by the sound card software and settings.

More-advanced sound cards would have similar adaptable 5.1 or 7.1 (paired) analog outputs and / or digital audio outputs that conform to the s/pdif or Dolby Digital standards.

A digital-capable receiver would accept 44.1 kHz for normal CD or DTS sources. Some diddling with the output sampling frequency might allow digital multichannel audio to be decoded by the receiver.

How do I plug my cable TV into the receiver and then into the TV? Whats wrong with the following: 1. Plug the cable into the antenna jack on the receiver 2. Plug the red/yellow/white cable into the...


When we talk about cables in an environment that also includes "cable TV", digital and analog audio; and video we need to be VERY specific.

Therefore, I could be misinterpreting what you meant in the following.

I doubt the receiver is designed to BE your cable box so hooking the TV-source cable to the FM antenna jack on the receiver is probably a bad idea.

If you HAVE a cable or satellite box, treat it like any other audio/video source and run its BEST audio digitally to the AVR and its BEST video to the monitor or TV (*) where the BEST most-specialized electronics will have the first shot at each function. You could also run basic composite video from the AVR out to the Monitor for the AVR's internal setup purposes.

* Even if it means bypassing the AVR. HDMI or DVI, component, composite are the various video outputs in descending order of quality. The TV deserves the BEST video.

If you're using the red/white/yellow cables for analog audo and composite video then you are making a major compromise in the quality of both.

How do I connect my samsung mm-c330 micro hi-fi system to my computer


If you want to amplify the sound you will probably need an adapter. You will use the audio output jack on your computer to an input jack on your receiver. There are usually several different inputs on a receiver but most use RCA phono plugs. The best choice input jack one the receiver is the one that says "AUX". You can buy the adapter cord at any Radio Shack. You will need to be sure to ask for a 1/8 inch stereo phone plug to two RCA phono plugs. This will split the stereo signal into left and right channels for your receiver.

Can I hook up a photo turntable to a sony str-de435 receiver? There aren't any jacks that specifically say phono, so I'm wondering if I can just hook it up to any of the audio jacks without any problem....


If your turntable has an amplified output, go ahead and plug it in to the aux port. If not, you won't be able to use it with your receiver properly. Look on the back (or front) of your turntable for a knob labeled "level" or "volume", and that will determine if it's amplified or not. Good luck, I hope this helps!

How do I play music from my lap top on this sound system?


your laptop has an audio output jack that is 1/8 inch sterio .. your sound system likely has RCA input jacks .. you can get a cable from radio shack that has a 1/8 inch (3.5mm) sterio plug on one end and two RCA plugs on the other ..
plug the 1/8 inch jack into your computers audio output (headphone jack) .. the RCA plugs will connect to the AUX (analog) input on your sound system .. select AUX on your sterio system to select the computers input .. now you should have great sound from your computer . the computer likely provides only sterio information so the multi (7) channel feature of your sound system will have to fake it ..

Where to plug the rc cables for audio?


Outputs from a source connect to inputs on the receiver. Use an RCA cable to connect the flat screen's audio output jacks to the input jacks you want to use on the receiver. Select that input on the receiver and you will have the audio from the flat screen set.
