View Full Version : Connecting a Dell 2005FP monitor to a satelite receiver

I would like to receive my satelite signal via my monitor. The only problem is how do I hear what is playing on the monitor? I could use the S-Video connector to feed it the video signal but that still leaves me with no sound.

I have a 5.1 sound speaker system connected to my pc but it doesn't have a regular component audio setup and the dell 2005FP doesn't have a component audio setup either.

I've been googling trying to find something but I can't come up with anything. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Well, without knowing which sat box and sound card you have, its a little tough to suggest anything, BUT you could always get a TV Tuner card and just plug the co-ax from the sat box to that.
