Hello,
 
This is my first post here, so I apologize in advance if this is posted in the wrong section.
 
I've got a 40" JVC LT-40DG51J TV. And I'm trying to get the sound from a PC tower to come through the TV speakers.
 
The only connection I can find next to the VGA port on the TV is a SPDIF.
 
I've got a 3.5mm to 3.5mm jack going fromt the SPDIF to the sound card on the tower.
 
Unfortunately I can't seem to get sound from the TV..
 
The tower is running Windows XP, and the motherboard is: K8M800-M2

Edit: Moved topic from Windows XP to the more appropriate forum.~ Animal

The SPDIF is an RCA connector, not a 3.5mm.

 

You need a 3.5mm to dual RCA cable.  The 3.5mm goes to the green connector on your motherboard.

 

I recommend Monoprice for great cables at low prices.

Oh, I'll have to order one of them then. Thanks so much for your help I was at a complete loss. I think I might have one, but I'm unsure so I'll have a look on google images, then If I've got one that look simular, i'll post a picture.

 

Thanks for your help!

Just checked - I've got a cable like that, but it has Red, White & Yellow connections. Would that be okay to use providing I don't use the Yellow one? Also, would I need to change any settings on the TV?

Probably won't work as it is for a video camera, the yellow connector is a video, there are probably three rings on the 3.5mm side and it is longer than a standard audio 3.5mm.  You want a 3.5mm with two rings and a red and white RCA jacks on the other end.
