G51 and T260H. How?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, i have a SAMSUNG T260HD HDTV/Monitor,
and i have Logitech G51 speakers,
so, obviously i know how to connect the G51 speakers directly to my computer/sound card,
but I was wondering if its possible to also use my G51 speakers when im watching TV on my T260HD, Is it possible to use my G51 computer speakers as computer speakers and TV speakers?

how do i do this?

it looks like that tv/monitor only has digital out in the back and the g51s only take analog. so you may have to split the headphone out on the side and route it to the front right/left of the g51 input onthe sub

get a 3.5mm "y" cable that has 1 male and 2 female plugs. connect the male to the front right/left port of the g51 sub. hook the original cable for the front right/left from the pc into one of the female plugs. run a stereo 3.5mm cable (male on each end) from the headphone jack on the tv to the other side of the "y" adapter.

this will give you stereo (left and right) when you use the tv and 5.1 when you use the pc. avoid using both at the same time as they will play through the front speakers at the same time

there are also options for converting the optical digital out from the tv into analog 5.1, but they arent cheap iirc

aux = auxilairy.

You take your headphone jack (3.5mm) and use RCA cables, so it goes from the green 3.5mm to the two cables with white and red.

ie TV = 3.5mm
Sub = Red and White
