    I just got a brand new Panasonic Viera P42G10 and I would like to hook up some external speakers for some improved sound quality. I figured that some powered computer speakers would be a good, cost-effective option and that I wouldn't have to spring for the whole receiver/speakers/$$$ setup.

    I've got a set of Klipsch Promedia 2.1's that I'd like to hook up to it, but I've discovered to my dismay that my new TV doesn't have a headphone jack or any other audio output I could attach my speakers to is a line-out.

    This means that the only way I'll be able to adjust my audio volume is on the control pod of the satellite speaker. That sucks. I don't want to have to get up and reach up to where I've mounted it on the wall every time I want to change the volume!

    What are my options? What can I do to make my life a little bit easier here?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi, I'm a fellow TCPG10 owner and I know a bit about the TV. The TV itself does has an analog audio out on the bottom of the inputs on the back. Using an RCA->Headphone adapter you can directly plug the speakers into the TV and have the TV adjust the volume.

    Right, I know it has an analog audio out plug in the back, but I was under the impression that this was a line-out connection. Are you sure that you can use the tv's volume control to adjust the volume or would I have to use the speakers' actual volume knob?

    Have you used this to connect speakers to?
