How Do I Connect Audio From My Computer to a Stereo or a TV? - Technical Tip - 147322




Connect Audio From the Computer to a Stereo or a Television

To connect the analog audio output to a stereo, you will need a cable resembling the one in Figure 1.

The green circle on the top left represents the audio output jack on the sound card. The connectors on the bottom right represent the two round connectors that are located on the back of the stereo or TV. These should be labeled similar to Audio In.

To connect DVD audio out (only the DVD decoder card with TV out has analog output) to a TV or stereo you will need this type of cable as well. Just plug the cable into the DVD card audio output instead of sound card audio output. For more information on DVD connections, refer to Dell Knowledge Base Document TT1023936.

NOTE: The cable is not supplied by Dell®, but is available at most electronic supply stores.
