    Ok so basically, I have a microphone and I want to connect it to my tv. Nothing really special about it, just a simple microphone jack. Is there any way to do so? It's not a karoke machine type deal, though I'm wishing I spent the money on that if I knew I was going to have somuch trouble haha. I don't know if this is the right thread but if not can someone point me to the right one?

    Hi PizzaLover84, and welcome to TSG.

    Are you wishing to use the TV like some type of simple public address system to have the TV's speakers output an amplified level of what is spoken into the microphone? Please clearly explain what you wish to accomplish if want to do something else.

    Does the TV have any analog audio inputs?

    Thats basically it. I want to have karaoke night but I didn't have a machine, I have a speaker that can get one mic input. I was hoping I could just use my tv as a glorified speaker. Also yea, those are those red and white cord things rigt?

    Red and white RCA jacks are usually line level stereo inputs on a TV. A typical dynamic microphone outputs much lower level signals. You would need a microphone pre-amp to amplify the microphone output to line level and then split it to both the right (red) and left (white) audio inputs on the TV. If you plan to play the karaoke audio and video through the TV, you would need to upgrade from a pre-amp to a mixer with at least one set of line level stereo inputs and at least one microphone input.
