    I have a Relisys LCD TV, model LV87E, but not the user guide. There's a mini-jack (I think) connector on the back which I can't identify:

    Not the 12V DC input but the other one. The symbol suggests that it's another input, but what could it be for? There are already phono inputs for AV1 and 2, which cover audio, component, and composite video.

    Any thoughts will be appreciated. Many thanks.

    It looks like a 3.5mm input, so if you took the sound from a headphone socket from somewhere, you can plug it into this and get stereo sound using a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable. Or even optical out to 3.5mm to keep digital fidelity. Maybe!

    Thanks for that. Yes, it makes sense: more sense than my initial idea which was that it might be a microphone input.

    What I should do is connect up the set (it's been unused and in storage for some years) and run though the i/o menus to see if there are any clues there.

    Could it be a PC audio input ?
