Hi, I've just built my first HTPC and trying to get mediaportal set up on it. A little bit confused as to which cables to hook up on the back tho.
Mainly how to get the sound from the SKY into the PC, and which cables going to TV.
I have a Sony Bravia 40" LCD Has VGA and HDMI input
Whats the best way to hook up my sound with a SKY Digital Decoder & probably just a cheap 5.1 speaker set for now?
For the SKY to PC: On some tuner cards I see they have two rca inputs for sound but mine dont.
The 1300 has a line in for sound but its a small plug, is there a red & white RCA to small plug cable?
Or should I just use the coax tv out to tv in
And from the PC to LCD: For the picture, do I use a DVI to VGA cable as well as a HDMI?
