    Is it possible to use the Cambridge Soundworks DTT2200 5.1 kit on a TV rather than a PC? I would imagine you would need a converter for the connections because they're split into front, rear and centre/sub.

    Any ideas?

    I dont see anything remotely PC orientated about this query - it's a Television to a sound system connection query. No computers involved whatsoever.

    You can certainly connect a TV to a DTT2200 - and it will, if you select the right option, give a pseudo surround sound effect, I would imagine.

    Quite how you connect it, depends on the output options available on the TV.

    A 3.5mm jack headphones socket to the aux input on the DTT2200 will work. Keep the volume control on the PC at a reasonable level - I suggest turning it down to 0 to start with, and gently increasing it until you get a reasonable, unclipped, sound coming from the sound system - set that initially around about volume 5. After all, you don't want to over excite the speakers at this point, you could blow them if the sound level is too high.
