I have an older TV, and I just got this DVD player in my room. It's a good TV, but just a few years old. It's got the standard RCA hookups. So, two connections for the Audio. Anything I can buy @ Radio Shack or anything, to use my Altec Lansings that are just sitting here? They just have the standard stereo connection for the Sound Card.

I'm gonna research it, but if someone knows soon, then I'm offffff to Radio Shack right now.


TIA.

Yeah, you need an 1/8 inch stereo plug to RCA jacks (male to male). Just tell one of the shack people - they will help you.

I'm assuming your speakers have a miniplug connection. Grab a RCA male/miniplug male connector from RS if you can disconnect the cable from the speakers. If not, buy a RCA male/miniplug female cable from RS.
