Alright, here's a quick question anyone with a decent pair of computer speakers can help me with. Do your speakers take input from 2 rca jacks (vcr input type), or one 3.5mm(normal headphone jack size)? Now I'm not talking cheapo dell speakers you get with your computer, I'm talking real nice speakers. I've got a 50 foot 3.5mm to 2x rca jack cable I would like to use (getting computer audio farther away), and now I'm wondering if this would hook up to a regular pair of nice computer speakers. . .


Now for something (not) completely different:

This is kind of related to this topic:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/82321/combine-dvi-and-rca/
I really don't think that this is going to work for me, without a receiver. And I'm cheap! I don't want to get a 100+ dollar receiver just to fulfill my fantasy of having comp video + sound on the tv. Basically, to ask my question over again, in a futile attempt to get an answer I want, is it possible to hook anything up to the tv speakers to play, and still input video, if they aren't on the same connection?

Here's an example. Say you plug your ipod into your dvd player with a 3.5mm --> 2x rca jack. You go to video in/line or whatever, and you get a black screen, with your ipod's sound playing through the tv speakers. Now, how would you go about sending video into that tv with an s-video cable, WHILE STILL PLAYING THE IPOD. That's basically what I want to do, kind of, not really. But you get the idea. . . .I hope =/

If you have a stereo that has an aux. input you could use that stereo 3.5mm male to stereo RCA cable. Or you could just go out and spend forty or fifty bucks on a 2.1 speaker system by Creative Labs or Logitech. If you intend on using this for a surround sound system to watch movies, well that's a whole different system.

Or you could just go and blow about $40,000. on a pair of Pass Labs Rushmore Loudspeakers. :thumbsup:

So the 2.1 speakers would indeed use rca jacks for input? I've looked at the backs of lots of speakers on newegg, and I just cant tell. If I can use computer speakers, I'll just move my comp speakers over when I need to, they're pretty nice.
