sorry, not surround, stereo

we recently set up a new movie room, with beamer etc.

now we're running into some problems.
the beamer is connected to the pc we have in the room, so we can watch movies through the pc.
the beamer is working just fine, but when we try to connect our recorder/stereo to the pc, it starts acting strange.
as soon as we set the stereo/recorder to F-1 (where the pc is plugged in) the sound gets through just fine for some 2 seconds, and then stops.
we are using an RCA to 3.5 mm cable to connect the stereo to the pc
(note that it uses just the red and white composite cable)

the weird thing is that if we connect the pc to an old stereo it works just fine, but the old stereo is only using 1 huge speaker(this might be of influence), so no surround sound/stereo.

and we really want the new stereo to work with the pc, so please help.

well, apperently the good old "have you tried turning it off and on again" computer fix works for stereo sets too.

we only had to turn the stereo set on and off :')

hopefully someone will find this useful.
