    My Logitech Z-640's came with an adaptor, for it, so those may

    EDIT: On one end its got the input for both RCA audio jacks, and on the other end, the ouput converted into PC audio jacks.

    Only way that I have been able to get my t.v. sound to my 'puter speakers is by using the "audio out" jack on my vcr/dvd player and running it into the "line in" jack on my audigy card. You must then be sure that the "line in mute" check box in your volume control is cleared. In this manner I am able to get decent t.v sound through my speakers but it is basically a mono sound distributed on all speakers.

    alright thats what ill do once i get my new tv, because the only input my current tv has is rf. the sound is just mono? what if my dvd player is a playstation 2? arent there settings in the playstation 2 to turn on surround sound? and is tv really cool with a subwoofer or does it just basically sit there?

    The only way to get surround out of a PS2 is to either use the optical connection, or get a different output cable that supports 5.1.
