Connecting Dell speaker system to TV or console

Hi Coldcut,

I have a Dell Home Speaker System MMS 5650 that I would like to use to hook up to my new Sharp HD TV or my XBox 360 console, for HD Movies. The hook up for the speaker system is a 3 to 1 (green, yellow, black to a single green that hooks into the back of my cpu).
I can either hook up a regular RCA ( white and red) to the XBox/TV or I can try to use the optical or coaxial.

Can you help me by telling me what kind of adapter I can use to do this?
I would really appreciate the help...

If you have a coaxial out on your TV and a coaxial in on your Speaker system that is the way to go to experience digital surround sound. Radio Shack, etc. has coaxial cables in the appropriate size. If you go to Radio Shack, etc. bring along your speaker system's model number as well as your TV's model number.

Hope this gets you going.

Suggest you abandon the mini-phone jack connection - sounds like a wire is broken in that connector. Use the RCA stereo outputs from your TV into the Dell surround system. You may need a couple of adapter cables to make that work. Take photos of the connectors on the back of your TV and on the back of the Dell Surround system. Take those to an electronics store like Best Buy and ask for help there to get the cables you need (telling them that the mini-phone (headphone) plug is giving you trouble.

Dell mms 5650 to play xbox 360?

You want to hook it up to your xbox or your tv? If it is connected to your tv already just adjust tv/xbox audio settings. If your looking for a place to plug it into your xbox your out of luck. I don't think that can be done without some skilled craftsmanship.
