Question about Audio Players & Recorders

I have been using a BA7800 with my Gateway 700XL, but not in use now. Can I use the BA7800 with my new Samsung LCD TV to improve the sound?

    Thank you, thank you. I will start figuring out where the connections should be made. There are four small speakers and a sub-woofer. Do you have any recommendations as to the best locations for each of the speakers?

    Thanx again. Brunie123.

    Thank you again, Walesarumi. Your responses were rapid and to the point. I appreciate that. I hope I don't have to bother you again.

yes of course, you can use your BA7800 speaker with your new Samsung LCD TV. It would work just fine.

Let me know if you have further question about this unit.

Good luck.

    if you have long speaker wires, you can put the speakers at the four corners of the room, then keep the woofer not far away from the TV.

What do I need to purchase to use these speakers with my new HP HPE-137c PC (was originally used with a Gateway PC)?

My clarification request was supposed to be a solution. I thought I'd clickedt the right place but maybe not. I see the link I included also didn't work. So let's try it again. You need a PCI sound card like this one which has both analog and digital outputs. Enable the digital output and you'll be able to keep using those BA speakers.

Adapting Boston Acoustics BA7800 for use with TV

Here's what you need:

Scroll down to the 3.5mm Stereo Jack / RCA Plug x 2 Y-Cable

Converts your TRS connectors to dual RCA plugs. You said you have 3 TRS connectors. Does the TV have 3 sets of RCA plugs you can use with this? If not, you may not be able to get full surround sound, just stereo sound, from your TV - and you'll need some RCA splitters to plug two (or three) cables into one port. I know you can get those at Radio Shack.

Install Boston Acoustic speakers BA7800 to a new Imac?

Partial Solution anyway - I just got a Mac Pro (2.66 Nehalem )and couldn't find the manual from my old Gateway 700XL. This is what I did: Plug the green wire into the analog output, and the pink wire (if you really need an external mic, but you shouldn't since our new computers both have a built-in mic) into the analog input. Just ignore the black wire. You won't have the 2 surround speakers, but I'm still looking for a fix for that. I got tired of the crappy speakers in my new Apple Cinema display (the ONLY crappy thing about my new system). As you know, the sound from the BA7800 is great, even with just the two front speakers and sub-woofer. I'll keep you posted if/when I figure out how to set up the surround speakers! Likewise, if you hear something, please post here and I'll keep checking back.

Trouble with rear speakers

This may be a software issue. If you only had two speakers before, the software will not use the rear speakers.
Go to Control Panel. Click on "Sound and Audio Devices". Under the Volume Tab, at the bottom, you will see a picture roughly representing the type of speakers.
Click on the Advanced button.
Click on the arrow in the pick box, and choose Surround Speakrs or the 5.1 Speakers.
Click Okay. Try the speakers again.

Speakers have no sound.

Have you tried other speakers? If so did they work? You might try updating the sound card drivers.
