    Most laptops today have S-VHS outputs so that you can play a DVD on your laptop and watch it on a TV with S-VHS inputs.

    How do you get the sound to the TV or an external AV receiver??? The sound from the headphone jack is marginal at best when run through another amplification process.

    Do any laptops have audio line outputs in addition to a headphone jack?

    In the wrong section...........HCPC area would be better...

    Hi & welcome to AV Forums :).

    Try a search here. IIRC, a USB "breakout" box is available (probably quite a few actually) which allows co-axial and/or optical output, even allowing DD 5.1 or DTS.

    Can't remember the manufacturer though.

    "In the wrong section...........HCPC area would be better"

    I agree, but after registering could not figure out how to get there...

    I have a USB splitter by Edirol, but that means carrying another piece of equipment. I was just trying to see if some laptops offered line-out jacks.

    I've seen a widescreen laptop with line-outs but they're not common.
