Hooking PC Speakers up to my TV?

CowbombCowbomb Registered User regular
Since my TV has some pretty crappy speakers, I went out today and bought a nice pair of Logitech speakers for it. Annoyingly though, my TV doesn't actually have a headphone jack, or any sort of audio-out - so I have no idea how to hook them up. D:

Can anyone help me out? It seems unlikely that there's no way of doing it...

    I find this incredibly hard to believe. How about posting the make and model info for us.

    Do you use a cable box or set top converter of any kind? If so (depending on the model of course) there should be a multitude of audio outs.

    It's an LG LS4D - and as far as I can tell, it's not got anything that I can actually plug the speakers into... though I am a bit thick when it comes to audio, so there might very well be something glaringly obvious that I've missed :P

    Edit: This is what I've got at the back:

    Mine has RCA out, so I used an adapter (like this http://www.compuvisor.com/logacoad97.html).

    Is there anything on the sides? You're right, I'm not seeing anything there.

    Nope, that's everything...

    I think I might be able to buy an adaptor for SCART-out, but to be honest I might just use this as an excuse to upgrade to a better TV... doesn't look like there's much I can do about the tinny sound on this one. :x

    I thought maybe it was hidden somewhere, but I pulled up LG's European website and snagged the users guide, and holy crap, I can't believe all those inputs and yet no output. i thought maybe this was a European thing, but checking the US website, our models are the same. The only dedicated audio out seems to be optical, and its not on all models.

    Seems either this post was skipped or I am blind, but yeah, your audio out should be coming from whatever device you are using (such as a cable box).

    I've not purchased a new TV in a while, but not one that I have ever owned had audio out on it.

    My TV has an Optical out port, so it's not exactly unheard of.

    On the flip side, I have owned tvs for the past 30+ years and every single one had some sort of audio out, from a simple headphone jack on the front to RCA jacks on the back to optical ports.

    Indeed. My ugly old CRT has audio in and out via RCA jacks. I even once accidently plugged my DVD player into the out jacks and couldn't figure out why no matter how loud I cranked it, everything was so quiet.
