How to listen to your itunes library trough your tv or av reciever

Okay I made this instructable in 10 minutes. It was that easy! A laptop would be good for this but a desktop near a tv is okay too. If you have a Airport Express then I will add a step for you people. (Note: I don't own an airport express so if it doesnt work, dont kill me) Use steps 1, 2, and 4 skip 3 you dont need it.

Step 3: The Wiring

below is how the wiring should be done to get the proper left right audio (it may vary by computer to computer) plug in the power and the audio cable and put the laptop out of sight. then plug it into your audio TV or av receiver (Note: it doesnt have to be as makeshift as I have done it, if you want you can wire it however you like. Switch the input on the tv or av receiver to the correct input.

Step 4: The Airport Express People

For You skip the wiring and set iTunes to play through the airport. You then can plug in the speakers to your airtport and enjoy.

So, while every computer is different, my HP laptop is connected to my AV receiver via an SPDIF output connected to the optical audio input on my receiver. SPDIF looks a lot like 1/8th but is actually a digital signal. In addition to the optical cable you also need a very inexpensive SPDIF adapter which any place selling optical cable should have.

You can just use a cable that converts a 2.5mm headphone jack to the AV Cables but make sure you get a cable that converts from the 2.5mm headphone jack to the AV Cables not the other way around. (made that same mistake)
