does your tv have rca plugs?  the red and white round plugs that you don't have to screw the wire into?

Here's what you need.



I found it here.  It's a male 1/8" din to RCA Y cable.   I have one for my setup.  I just run it through the audio out on my laptop.

...you wouldnt want to connect your laptop to your TV with a receiver in the first place.

there is no need to unless you are using the reciever to amplify the sound for large speakers.
