I hope this question isn't too hard to answer. My friend did it with a bunch of jacks, but I'm wondering if there's an easier way.

I have this Apex DVD player for TV But, the TV's speakers are really, while my computer speakers are fairly good. So, what could I do so the DVD sound would output to my computer speakers? If it's important, I'm running a Apex AD-1500 DVD player. My computer is around 12-15 feet away from the DVD player.

Thanks for any help!

im sure you could do it with a simple adaptor, check radio shack

i went to the tomshardware forums and all i got was this lousy signature.

I hope so. I guess I can just go there and ask 'em if it's possible. Thanks for replying, though. This forum's been pretty dead, and I wasn't sure if anyone would. There's still hope for it... :eek: 

I'll tell you how it goes. See ya!

The people there were ignorant. They didn't know what to tell me. I actually just used an Koss stereo's line-in jacks in the rear, then connected the Audio cable to that. So, whenever I watch a DVD, I just turn on that stereo, switch it to auxilary, then I have better sound.

Any better speakers, and the DVD would be cheezy, especially on a smaller TV.

My friend did figure out that he didn't need so many adapters and he was kicking himself. I would've did it, if my computer was closer, or if the longer cable didn't cost that much. But, the way my speakers are set up, the sound would be coming from the right side of the room instead of in front.

See ya!
