    Can anyone tell me what these two sockets are used for on the back of my PC.?
    I'm kind of hoping, although I don't have a clue, that I might be able to plug in 5:1 surround sound speakers.

    On the picture, can anyone confirm what these sockets are and what they are used for.?

    much kind regards

    Looks kinda like a capture card to me. You can use it to capture videos or still frames from VCR's, TV's etc. But, lets see what others say. Also, what kind of computer is it. You may be able to look it up, or have someone else look it up and see if that systems comes with something like a capture card.

    Download SIW and it'll tell you all about the installed hardware. I agree it looks a lot like a capture card.

    It' a 'TIME' computer XP2700 2.16Ghz, bought in 2002. I don't recall ever having any documentation about what these sockets do. I'm searching the web for any info and if I find out I'll mark this thread as solved.

    I downloaded the SIW utility (neat stuff)
    I'm pretty sure it's a 'Legacy Video Capture' device, but if anyone knows different please let me know.
