You just connect the green plug to a mini 1/8 line out or use a stereo RCA male to mini 1/8 female adapter (radio shack or cyberguys.com) and connect your desktop speaker to that.

You can also connect surround sound speakers if your flat panel TV supports it. There are two ways, one is with the digital out, usually a black socket, to a digital input, also usually black. This is pretty much the same as a coaxial connector. Other options are to use a fiber cable but the difference is negligible and the headaches severe. Many flat panels have the good old green socket, which is analogue and most surround systems will take an analogue input. The difference in surround sound is quite considerable using analogue.

The most affordable surround sound speaker systems are made by Creative Labs and include models less than $200 and usually include a remote. Which ever you choose, you want the remote so you can mute when the phone rings and also control the volume as well. I've used newegg.com as a vendor for these systems extensively as you usually have 30 days to return as unacceptable for your application. Avoid Ebay.

Let me know if this has only opened the door to more questions or if you have all you need to know.

Worldvet

    What forms of audio out do you have now?

    On your TV that you want to connect your new speakers to, are there more than one set of audio out ports?

    For example, most have RCA audio, these are red and white, video out is yellow. And, most have a port for a little plug, the hole for htis is 1/8"wide.

    Does that help?

    Connect a wire that should have come with your speakers that is usually colored black and is not a stereo plug, only one black ring on the male plug itself. Connect this from the TV to the digital input on your speakers inputs. Otherwise you need a dual RCA male to 1/8" stereo female to run from your TV to the audio in (green) on your speaker set. You can get these parts from Radio Shack easily and if there is someone there who sounds qualified describe your setup to him/her. And, take your speakers diagram fold out with you so they know exactly how to help you and they will.

Why can we not connect our smart tv to Netflix from our computer


You have to go the display in control panel to find graphic card of computer and select both output for monitor and tv .this so you can still control the setting via computer.once TV is connected just simply switch off the monitor until you need to set things back as they were. Nvidia and Ati graphic cards usually have their own software run on the desktop to adjust things like output to TV.

How to i connect my computer speakers to my LG tv?


Hi there,

Fristly, you need to determine if your tv supports 3.5mm PC audio input or RCA PC audio (Red/White) input.

To connect audio from your computer to your tv, you will need a cable with 3.5mm stereo plug on one end (this connects to your computer's headphone socket/speaker output) and either a 3.5mm plug or 2 x RCA (Red/White) plugs - depending on your tv input.

No audio on the HDMI output for a sharp LC32SB24U


Hu dueperdio,

I see that your HDMI on your LCD TV does not provide audio, I will be more than glad to give you details on your concern, please see below step by step details,

* Before we start lets make sure that the HDMI cable is connected to you Computer.

* On your computer Laptop/Desktop lower right you should see an icon for the audio or a speaker icon to be exact, right click on it then select playback devices.

* Once we have Playback Devices up on the screen you will see a list showing you your HDMI device, Speakers, and possibly a Realtek High Definition audio device.

* Right click on the HDMI device which should be the first on the list and cselect on set as default device to make audio work on you LCD TV.

* Once set check if Aduio comes from HDMI to your LCD TV if not you will have to restart your Computer, leave the LCD TV on, and wait for the computer to start back up.

this should make HDMI video and Audio work on your LCD TV,.

Note: the steps above will be the same if you will go back to using the speakers of your computer, you will just have to set the speakers as the default device to get audio from you Laptop speakers or if you have a desktop on your desktop speakers.


I hope that this will help you get Audio from your HDMI, have a nice day,

HOw do connect sound out put from USB drive connected to the TV to external speakers?


If your TV has earphone jacks, you can connect I to an amplifier and to a speaker. This way you need not open the TV cover. There are active speakers available in the computer sales shops you can use them also.

You can use audio out also to feed amplifier. Look for AV symbol either at the rear of the TV, near the antenna connector or the front of your TV button panel.
