Would like to get TV sound through PC speakers?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This is my system: Gigabyte P35-DS4 Rev2.1, Quad Q6600 SLACR, PCP&C Silencer 610, 2 x 1GB G.SKILL PC6400, Thermalright Ultra120E, running Windows XP Home (SP2).

I have updated the Realtek audio driver (5.10.0.5497) and have the Realtek HD Audio Manager set up for my Logitech X-530 5.1 surround speakers. What I would like to know is if it is possible to connect my TV to this MB and be able to have the TV sound come through the speakers? I'd like to be able to switch between TV sound and PC sound if it's possible.

I bought a Belkin Y Audio Cable to hook up to my TV because someone had suggested that I could just plug the 3.5mm connector into the Line-In jack on the I/O panel to get sound from the TV, but this does not work. The only thing I get is a humming sound.

I have made sure nothing is muted in the sound panel and I have went through all the settings screens in the Realtek HD Audio Manager. There are no options for the Line-In jack, aside from selecting it when I plug something into it.

I am just wondering if anyone has any experience with this and could offer some suggestions.

Thanks.

it has to be a analoge signal not a digital

I have the Y-cable. That's what I already tried, but like I said all I get is a humming sound.
