stereo output + 5.1 input > how to connect?


well, hp gave m a 'free gift' for my laptop purchase. a home theater so to say.

two parts:

1. a very basic philips dvd player with 5.1 ch output ( all individual, RCA), tv out and coaxial out..no input, other than dvd ofc.

2. philips dsp 2200 speakers. 5.1 channel input ( all individual ,RCA). no other input mode.

now, the two parts fit in pefectly well..but as a home theater, they are of no use to me(don't have a tv here ). wanted to connect the speakers to my laptop. laptop has a stereo out,spdif out ( thru dock, not purchased) and hdmi out ( wit hd audio). the laptop can support 5.1 all right, but has no connectors to make use of it. what to do? even all speakers playing stereo mode should do.....

sad joke actually..they could have given an option to connect stereo..

Well, get an optical cable then! You didn't mention clearly if it was absent?
No HDMI in on the DVD player or the speakers poses another problem.

I don't see an option really, other than getting a cheap USB sound card.

Re: stereo output + 5.1 input > how to connect?

See in that case, you cant have a 5.1 setup. You can have a 2.1 setup though.

Re: stereo output + 5.1 input > how to connect?

i dont know what a tec is for, but rpm, dude post me a link of the speakers, dint find any such on the philips india site.

Does the 5.1 setup have modes? surround, theatre, action, 3-stereo or something???

what i am thinking is using rca bridges and give the FL, RL ( front left, rear left ), the left channel, the FR, RR the right channel. and bridge the signal to the sub and remove the centre. So you get stereo surround, and you can utilize atleast 4 channels.

Or else, put the speakers in pairs together, and bounce the sound off the wall from one, and get direct firing from the other. This will also improve the sound stage drastically.
