Connecting 360 and PC+Surround Sound Speakers

  • Thread starter rich_stephenson

I have a 'standard' Dell PC, TFT and speakers (with sub woofer). I understand that I can connect my 360 up to play on the TFT however I was wondering whether its possible to connect up my 360 so that it will play through the speakers and sub woofer via the PC?

Depends what audio inputs your PC has.

If it has an analog line in (which most do - as a stereo mini jack) then get a convertor for the red/white stereo RCA audio outs on the vid cable to 2.5mm stereo mini jack.

If it has a digital in, usualy using a minijack socket, use a toslink optical to optical minijack thing (sorry dont know the specific name).

or you could use the stereo pair direct to the speakers with a convertor cable and splitter (for the PC).
