How can I get stereo from my PC to my audio system?

How can I get stereo from my PC to my audio system?

I want to watch the video from my PC on my TV and listen to the audio through my audio system.

If I use the HDMI connection from my PC to TV the audio goes to my TV and the speaker jack is overridden.

Any ideas?

Your TV should have a digital audio output. Send that to the sound system.

Yes it does,I know, thanks. This is what I am trying to avoid.

Long story short I'd need an electrician to come run the wire because it snakes through so much wall and rooms.

I have one HDMI and one set of those multi colored connects/wires from teh tv to the sources. I have to work with these or as I said I'll need an electrician.

If those multicolored wires are component video cables, you can use one of them for digital audio. Assuming your TV has an optical rather than coax output, just get an optical-coax converter.

I am going to solve it by buying a Blue Ray player with HDMI inputs and use the RCA audio outputs to my Nad and the HDMI for the picture to the set.

That will work, too. But, be careful because some newer players lack analog stereo outputs.

Take a look at the Oppo 103.

Yes, the 103 is perfect.
