Playing my Laptop Through the AC Reciever
I don't have Sky/Virgin at the moment but I am able to access my parents' SkyGo login so I can catch up with stuff online, mainly football. The laptop I have is ancient (Acer Aspire 5100), but does the job.
I want to run the laptop through my DENON 1909 avr via VGA to Component Video Cable. However, I know a 3 point Component (red/blue/green) cable doesn't carry sound. So I'm a little confused
If I'm right in thinking that I then need a 5 pin component cable (red/blue/green/white/red) with the extra audio carrying capacity?
Using the link below, where do you propose I plug the extra white and red? Is it the corresponding connections to Red/Blue/Green shown in the picture?? Let us say DVD for example?
Secondly, does VGA automatically carry sound? Or, is this dependant on the laptop?
Failing this, would I then be able to take a jack form the Headphone Socket on the laptop to the audio connections on the front of the Denon??
A few questions there to think about,
Very greatful if you can shed light on any.
