hooking up stereo speakers to a tv
hey, guys. this has nothing to do w/ computers, but my dilemma is still electronic, so i thought i'd ask you. i currently have a stereo system w/ six speakers attached. the stereo sits in my entertainment center next to my tv w/ the speakers all around it, and i would really like to hook the speakers to my tv. but i'm not sure how to do it. the stereo has no a/v jack on the back, so i don't even know if it's possible, but if anyone can help me or direct me to a how to site or something, i'd greatly appreciate it.

If there are no a/v jacks, then I don't think it's possible. That seems pretty odd though.

First you should check that the TV has an audio signal out. If it doesn't that would require going inside and tapping into the circuit to get the signal.

I did this on my old TV, it had an external audio jack out. Just ran a shielded cable between the TV and went into the stereo using the AUX input. Your typical stereo should have both a Phono and AUX input jack.

It was the same deal, stereo had a very complete speaker system attached, on mine, I can even use my home control system to shift the signal around to speakers in many rooms. Duh, no TV pic's but can listen to the TV.
