Guys I need your help. I boght a soeaker 5.1 channel and I found later after 3 weeks of trying to connect it with my win 7-64 is there was no SPDIF port.However, I will post pic for my pc and my TV and the speaker so you can tell me how I connect them and if I need to buy adapter

This is my TV it is Sceptre 32 LED

I am using HDMI


Now this is my Speaker from Acoustic AA 5102

This came with bad manual, it is only says were it is says DVD audio input, I should connect it to my DVD. I do not have DVD, and also for the two top AUX input its says that for PC.

This is my PC, I am using gig 990fxa-ud5 and it is supporting 5.1


For now I want to say some thing, when I use this caple from my speaker to my PC

I can go and set up my speaker to 5.1 so I can hear all the speaker work but, they all the same I dont feel any different.However, if I went to my PC audie settieng to check if I am using 5.1, I see I am using 2.1 but still the sounds come from all the speaker because of the speaker itself can change the audio but as I said this is not a 5.1 it is 2.1 because when I test it from my PC for 5.1 I only I can hear the right and left work. WhenI do the test and my right and left works as the pc telling me, my speakers all of them work as if they are just right and left. So. since my speaker do not have SPDIF is there is a way to make it work ? I do not want to buy a DVD just to connect my speaker to it and then from the DVD to my TV.

Sorry my English is not good , I hope I make it cleaer.

Hi, From the PC to the 5.1 you need two more cables as the one in the picture (one for Front L/R, one for back L/R and one for SW/Centre). Connect them to the DVD in ports.
Not sure about the TV. Do you want to connect the TV also to the speakers?

Here's how I would do it:
PC to AA 5102:
white port (side) to DVD Audio Input FL, FR
black (rear) to DVD Audio Input SL, SR
orange (C/SUB) to DVD Audio Input CEN, SW
TV to AA 5102:
Audio Out RL to AUX Audio Input R,L
This way you will have 5.1 from the PC and stereo from the TV.

Have you connected the
white port (side) to DVD Audio Input FL, FR
black (rear) to DVD Audio Input SL, SR
orange (C/SUB) to DVD Audio Input CEN, SW

Can you post a picture with the PC back ports, cables connected and one with the speaker, cables connected?

What I would try: Disconnect the three cables from the computer's jacks and with only one cable test each jack:
-plug it in the gray jack, then click test and see what speakers get the sound a.s.o for each jack.
Check also the connections to the rear speakers, try swapping the cables (with the front ones), see if the speakers work.

Ok there is something happen, when I removed the Green with is R and L. The skpeaer disable, it's looks like my PC only read the Greend one.The word "tesr" were disable so I could not press it.

We'll solve it, don't worry.
Have you installed the audio Realtek driver?
Try opening the Realtek HD Audio manager and configure there the 5.1
