see if you can help me with this

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
okay first off, I didn't know what section to put this under.

anyways I got a new 55" TV last night I had my audio setup like this, I have a cable that supposed to plug into the red and white audio outs f a TV and I plug my pc speakers into the other end of it so that no matter what input mode its on the sound would come out of the speakers if I wanted, I also have an Xbox turtle beach headset they also plug into the same red and white ports on the TV so I could turn speakers off and use headphones if needed.

now o my new TV I cant figure out which ones to plug them into ive tried em all nothing, the speakers are plugged into my pc right now and they work fine...

this is the TV.
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Insignia%26%23153%3B+-+55%26%2334%3B+Class+(54-5/8%26%2334%3B+Diag.)+-+LCD+-+1080p+-+120Hz+-+HDTV/4676582.p?id=1218505283103&skuId=4676582&st=insignia%2055&cp=1&lp=1

I think you can kind of see the audio outputs on it do I need a new wire for my speakers to plug into? I think ill just go to radio shack later and see what they say

so I was recommended these cords:

ive wired it all up then my pc comes up with a menu saying:
headphones
audio fixed
audio variable

no matter what I do if I can get sound out its all distorted and stuff and sounds really bad now what do I do?

I can't see the markings for the red/white audio ports from the pics, but I did see a mini jack on the side that might be a headphone out. If you use the minijack splitter you linked you can split that so that one goes to your headphones and the other to the minijack/rca converter you also linked then to your speakers (which I am assuming take rca as an input, if not, skip the converter and plug it directly into the splitter).

i did that i put the first cord into the headphones port on my tv plugged the speakers into one port they are just pc speakers
-(http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Logitech+-+Z313+2.1-Channel+Speaker+System+(3-Piece)+-+Black/Silver/9427774.p?skuId=9427774&id=1218104302605)
and the rca splitter thing into the other and plugged skull cady headphones into that if i could make sound come out it would be all distorted and stuff on my games

like i say on my old tv it had red and white rca audio out jacks i plugged xbox headset into it on back of tv and plugged a cord that on one end had red and white rca out and the other had a plug for my speakers and no matter what input i had it on i could use either my speakers with volume adjust or my headset on any input

ugh sorry if hard to udnerstand

Have you gone into your TV settings under sound and try to adjust the output.

From the photos it looks like the audio out is the red and white RCA's at the very end, am I correct?

And the 3.5 is for audio in, not out.

Just check your TV's audio settings and make sure they are set for external speakers.

That's your problem then, because the 3.5 is audio in also.

After further review of the TV I see that it has a 3.5 out port where the USB's are. So if you plug the 3.5 Y adapter into that it should work. Have you tried that?

No, just thumbed through the manual, the 3.5 is an audio out. Have you tried hooking up only the headphones or the speakers and not both at the same time?

Okay you will need this cable,
http://www.amazon.com/3-5mm-Stereo-Female-Cable-inches/dp/B0018MI5F6/ref=pd_cp_MI_0

or

This adapter,
http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Go-40645-To-Adapter/dp/B000J1H4VI/ref=pd_sim_e_4

Either of the two should fix your problem. Plug the into the 3.5 on the side of the television, not the one in the back.
