7-7-5: How to connect my sound card to Stereo Receiver (Author: GoonBoy)

You need:

1/8" mini male stereo plug to two RCA female Y adapter. AND:

1 set standard stereo hookup cables (RCA to RCA - black/red pair)

OR - 1/8" stereo mini plug (male) to 2 RCA male plug adapter cable - one piece.


Plug one end of the black/red pair into the Tape In, Aux In, etc., on your tuner, the other into the two female RCAs on the Y adapter. Plug the 1/8"male stereo mini plug into your Line Out/Speaker jack.
This will let you play PC Audio through your stereo.


If you want to record from the stereo into the PC (to make a CDR, etc., just change the stuff at the stereo end to Tape Out, or Aux Out, and the 1/8"mini at the PC goes to Line In. You can then import audio from your stereo to a PC mixer, CDR-W, etc.

PICTURE DOESN'T FILL THE SCREEN -
* Several customers have reported positive results by downloading TVTOOL which allows you to "fill" the screen. Go here:

If you get a black border around your picture, first look in the software settings for your card as to whether there is a particular setting you have to click to force the display to go full screen when you want it to go full screen. You may also have to set your display resolution to a lower setting -- I see this problem most particularly if you have a high display setting such as 1024x768 or more likely when set much higher -- your PC monitor may be able to handle it but your TV (or your TV Tuner card) may not. Just try different display resolution settings whether higher or lower to see what happens
