I have a Denon Avr 887 I want to hook my computer to the receiver so I can listen to cds and dowloaded music. Which output should I use? Also If I want to use the computer to display pictures on my tv which output should I use? Thank you in advance
If you have a digital output, use that. Otherwise you will be stuck with the analog outs from your sound card.
The answer to the second depends on your video card and your TV. You need to find the same connection on both. Some TVs have VGA. If the video card outputs DVI and the TV has an HDMI input, that can be done with a converter. Those are the two obvious options. Composite is also a possibility.
