    Right im gonna route my pc to my ptae100 projector through the VGA lead. My question is what about sound. Can i attach the phono leads on ptae100 to my Sony AMP. Will the VGA lead carry the sound to the projector allowing me to then carry the sound signal to my amp via the phono leads, will this work.

    Why on earth would you want to route sound to the PJ and then output to your amp ???

    Just go from your source directly to your amp.

    The VGA/PC in socket on the projector only carries video information from a video source.

    The audio connectors on the projector are audio in, i.e. from a sound source, if you connect them to the inputs on an amp nothing will happen.

    Why not connect directly from the PC to the amp?

    Depends what soundcard you have.

    If its just a standard 2 channel sound card then a single 3.5mm to 2 x Phono will do the job.

    If its 5.1 then you need 3 of the above, they are 2.99 each at Maplins.

    You can get Quality ones for 19.95 each.

    The cheapo ones are gold plated and work very well I don't have any probs with them, infact DVD Audio discs sound better through my htpc than on my Tosh SD900E standalone!

    Just as a side question, what do peeps use, ie which sound card is best and what connection types are available, spdif etc ??
    Yes I am too lazy to look in my manual :rolleyes:
    Oh and is the sound output as good as a stand only DVD player ?

    All depends what type of audio card you have and its outputs. If you have optical out on the soundcard then use an optical cable, if not then use a stereo jack plug to phono cable.

    OK, I have an Audigy player (OEM) - I believe it has digital out so I can go into my AMP's digi in.
    What cable do I use for this? Can I make it easily.

    Cheers

    You need a Mono 3.5mm to RCA adaptor and a Phono to Phono Coax cable.

    Most folks get a cable made for that, cuts out 1 connection. I've got one I don't use, but it will only cost you £10 to have one made, so not worth posting! Make sure you adjust your audio properties correctly on the audigy, or it will sound like it's playing next door.

    Brad, do you have a digital out socket? In which case the same applies to you. Lots of those packard bells have one on the front panel at the bottom. Colour coded yellow, labelled SPDIF out.
    If you aint, you're stuck with a stereo out, and pro logic sound from your amp. To find out more about the PC stuff, go check the HCPC forum, your life will never be the same again...

    cheers bud.
    I'm assuming this would mean setting the card to direct out, bypassing all the effects etc?
    It's an OEM card so it came with no instructions :)

    It probably doesn't apply effects to DD or DTS, you just enable spdif in audio props, and possibly also your DVDsoftware, depending on what you run. It's also important with creative products to set the sample frequency to 48khz for DD pass thro' as default is 44.1 which muddies the sound thouroughly. This is on the audio contol icon in control panel.

    BTW you can get a pdf manual at creative.com
