    First off, my home theater system is this one:

    Here's my problem.

    I've got my computer hooked up with my 36" tv to use as a monitor. There's a jack in back of the computer for "digital audio out," and then there's the regular (?) jack for just hooking up plain computer speakers.

    I've got a home theater system hooked up, in which all the jacks in the back of that are all full (no more free ones). I do have an audio jack in the back of my tv where it's set up for a PC.

    Just not sure about what type of cable I'd need. I've included pics so you can tell.

    The way it's all hooked up is this:

    TV->Home theater system - uses "auxiliary."

    I want to get the PC->TV for sound, which I'd assume I'd still use "auxiliary" on my system to listen to the sound.

    If this isn't making sense let me know. I'm not exactly the technological type.

    Pics below.

    Hard to get this pic, sorry about the blurriness. The left-most outlets are (top left) digital audio out and (bottom left) for computer speakers.

    Auxiliary option I have to use to listen to my tv/dvd sound:

    All of the outlets in the back of my dvd player are plugged up already.

    Do I just need to get one simple cable to go from the computer to the tv then? Or is this more complicated than I think it is?

    3.5mm stereo > 3.5mm stereo.

    best buy, circuit city, radioshack, walmart, guitar center, rite-aid, etc, will all have it.

    Turns out I already had that cable. Was using it to listen to my mp3 player in my car. :big grin:

    Thanks again. :)
