i need an adaptor

Recommended Posts

I'm going to try and explain what i need to you guys. I'm not sure how to put it so I'm just going to try my best.

I need something for my RCA audio cable and turn it into a headphone jack so that i can use my computer speakers for it.

Heres a very crude picture that might help out. Ive looked for this adaptor and haven't found anything, but i think there should be one out there somewhere

thats another good way to go, the only problem with tho is sometimes they wont fit on the back of  the computer because the body is rather big and it can hit the case before going all the way in.

yea the one that came with my speakers would be better cause its smaller and little longer. But that is what he is looking for. Looking for the one i have now to link to.

what ive been trying to do is use my playstation with my 22" lcd monitor which gives a perfect picture but it uses a DVI input, so what i needed to do use to use my HDMI to DVI cable for the video. and use the multi output to my TV's RCA inputs for sound. and my tv has a headphone jack to connect my computer speakers to. i wanted and easy way.

I cant even buy this one http://www.cablewholesale.com/specs/30s1-01400.htm Because they require a $10 minimum purchase. First paragraph here  https://www.cablewholesale.com/about/tsandcs.htm

I don't think you would want that anyway because its mono.

And what you are doing there sounds really odd. Why don't you just put your computer speakers directly too the playstation and get your TV out of the mix. 

Go from the playstations rca audio out too this cable http://www.priceguidenetwork.com/3.5mm-stereo-female-to-rca-male-y-cable-pgn-28440424.html get 2 barrel connectors http://technicalconnectionsinc.stores.yahoo.net/rcacoja.html

Connect the first RCA too 3.5mm too your playstation then plug your speakers directly into the 3.5mm female end

I cannot connect my speakers directly to the PS3 because it does not have a headphone jack.

Im using the HDMI to DVI cable for the monitor

and using the multi-out connected to my tv, and using the tv's headphone jack connected to my speakers for the sound.

I understand what your thinking. and it should work but will the signal go through both ways, because it says that its a 3.5mm to RCA and i want a RCA to 3.5 mm.

yea don't worry about. It will go both ways. Its not a directional cable.

Online would probably be the best, if you don't want to move lol. (or pay extra)

I've found ordering online, saves me money. But for something this small I don't see it making a difference.

If you can find it in store, buy it, but if you can't I'd order it online and get it shipped to my house.

I did this. I went from the PS2 to a pre-amp and had good quality sound.

In order to go to your PC Speakers, they must be able to amplify the sound on their own accord.

In the acse of a PS3, I would expect that if you want the best sound you should go into a digital receiver.

These days your cable box has Composite video and audio conections in that will give you a nice HD picture as well.

I'm not sure if the PS3 has the same capability of the 360 to use the Windows Media Center or not, But I could probably figure some thing out to go from the pc out to the TV as well if you sport a HDTV tuner on your graphics card.
