I finally recieved last week my new Samsung T220HD Montor/TV, and i've been fruitlessly trying to setup my Logitech x-540 5.1 surround sound speakers to the thing. Before i recieved my new TV I had my speakers connected to the side of my laptop which worked perfectly, but had to keep unplugging it all and attaching it to my xbox whenever I wanted to play on my games. I bought this monitor/tv so i could have my xbox, computer, and TV all in one place so i was wondering if anyone knew how to connect the 5.1 speakers up to the Samsung TV so whether I'm using the TV, Xbox, or my laptop the sound comes out the logitech speakers and not the TV.
I also forgot to mention that a stereo cable came with the monitor TV. Would i need to get something else in order to be able to connect the laptop to the TV and Speakers in order to get surround sound?
"PC Audio/Video via VGA cable PC to TV/Monitor" From what i hear audio is not sent through the VGA cable.. or am i misinformed? I hooked up my laptop to the tv with the VGA cable and it would only play sounds through the laptop speakers. So i figured the stereo cable is for the sound, but I tried connecting that in all three of the sockets on the side of the laptop and still the sound would come through the laptop. Do you have a speaker system hooked up to your samsung? I can only find a single sound output on the side which would not be enough to give me the surround sound i want...
haha no problem. I think i understand now. As i said before i had my speaker system working fine connected up to my laptop. Not sure what my sound card is but it worked :) I was just looking for a way that i can connect the same speaker system up to the TV/Monitor so when flicking from tv, xbox, laptop then i get the sound through them and not my TV's or Laptop's tinny little speakers. Any ideas how i could achieve this?
I could be more precise if I had my TV/Monitor Instructions to hand, but I am in the process of moving home so am in a bit of a mess at the moment, with most of my belongings now packed ready for my move next week.
