Not that i know of as they need to have specific drivers installed..I may be wrong but to use on the TV each speaker would need to be independant and not just work off the one cable like on a PC as your sound card splits all the signals for you and the TV can't do that. :thumbsup:

You can get these to work on your TV but only with stereo sound and you will only be able to get 2.1 sound, unless you have them linked through a near by computer.

For the first option what you need to do is to get a 3.5mm male to male jack lead to go from the headphone socket on your tv to the back of the speakers. This means that you get 2.1 sound from your TV but obsiously 3 of your speakers wont work.

The second option is to get the 3.5mm male to male jack lead to go from the headphone socket on your tv to the line jack socket on the sound card of your pc. Once this is done you can then plug in your speakers to your sound card and you will have stereo sound but with all 5.1 speakers, i personally feel that this is the best option if you have a pc near by which is generally always on as to get sound your pc would need to be on.

Hope this helps.

i'm sure there must be a solution. what does your tv use to output sound? or do you run a sky box? etc. your speakers will take input via 3 3.5mm jack plugs, which is split into front, rear and front+sub. i know my tv outputs 5.1 via optical though i'm not sure if it does any other way. is it possible to carry 5.1 via a scart? if so, i am sure someone makes some sort of adapter. i'm gonna browse and look!

arrgh, i'm getting a headache. i think i found a way to convert rca to coax, and you can get coax-optical adapters. but not the other way around.

i linked it to my tv but it is not using all speakers. bascially all i done is connect a cable from the dvd to the speaker headphone socket. the cable i used is the one with the 2 colours the white and the red and the end is a 3.5mm jack which connects to the headphone socket.
