Having problems with your Computer Speakers ?

Connecting my inspire 5.1 to use with my sat/tv system

\015 Hello,\015\012I purchased a inspire T6100 speaker system by Creative. On the box cover it shows use with a home entertainment set up w/sat. I am not sure if I can use this surround sound set with my tv and sat sytem. If so, what do I need to connect it. There are no inputs on either my sat box or my tv that will connect with the three (orange, green, and black) connectors on my new speakers. Is this speaker system ONLY for use with a PC? It appears to be so. If not I need to know what I need to make it work with my set up. I have a cnx mini duo receiver box for sat, and a 58 inch rear projection big screen tv by Hitachi.\015\012\015\012PS ( my speakers are T6100, I could not find that so I chose the closest on list)\015\012\015\012Thank you so much\015\012Shannon\015

Radelle1967,
I had originally bough these speakers for the sole purpose of connecting them to my 26" LCD Vizio television. I quickly realized that these speakers were not made for a television, so I just kept them connected to my desktop PC.
However, one day I asked my buddy from college to look at them and see what he thought. It took him a while to figure it out, but here is how I have them hooked up.
I can not guarantee that this will work on any other television set, but it does on mine. On the back of my Vizio television there is a hookup called "optional audio," which is located beneath the yellow, red, and white hookups. I hooked a 3-way headphone splitter into the "optional audio" hookup and then plugged the three cables from the speakers into the splitter.
Hooking up your speakers like this works very good and the sound is equally distributed between all speakers. However, there is a setting on my television under the sound menu that enables you to turn "surround" on. I had been told that by using a 3-way headphone splitter I wouldn't be able to get true surround sound, but turning on this option on my television actually allows this to be accomplished.

Hope this works for you. I purchased the 3-way splitter at radioshack and it was under $10. If your television does not have an "optional audio" hookup, you could probably try an RCA connector with just the red and white hookups that split into one and then connect the 3-way splitter to that.
