I'd love to play music from my laptop over my amplifier. The amplifier has a phono input (red and white), my laptop has a 3.5mm AUX output. I have an adapter that fits on one page in the AUX output of the laptop, on the other hand, has a green-blue-red output, so probably a Component Video connector. When I put the red booster cable to the green connector and the white amplifier cable into the blue connector, works the audio transmission. My question is: Can this peculiar connection to short circuits and thus cause damage to the device?
The best answer
Component video has no specification for audio transmission. Just as you have assembled it, it will not work, because in a video broadcast on Component always two additional cables exist that make up the audio path. Logically, it would be here, a 3.5mm jack to RCA audio adapter to get. The has been around for a few Euros in any electronics market. What I still ask: HOW TO GET TO THE IDEA OF ATTEMPTING AUDIO ON A VIDEO STANDARD TO TRANSMIT?
the connector has 4 contacts? Otherwise I can not imagine how the 3 split me. works ifs correctly (ie left / right adjustable and not a mixture thereof), there should be no problem.
