Hopefully, someone is smarter then me and can shed some light on my problem. I just upgraded my home theater system from a 5 speaker + sub setup to a 2 speaker + sub setup. While I am extremely happy with the video and sound quality of the system while I am watching a DVD on the DVD player that came with the system, the sound quality when I connect the system to my laptop in order to listen to mp3's is terrible. On my old system, I simply ran a audio cord from the headphone jack on my laptop to one of the audio inputs in the back of the DVD player. Good sound out of all the speakers and the sub did what it was supposed to do. Now when I do the same thing to my new system, the sound quality is terrible and the sub doesn't seem to work. Now my old system is around 6 years old and my new system is probably no more then a year old making it set up with HDMI, Component Video, S-Video, etc...a bunch of features that my old system did not have. I tried messing around with the sound settings on my laptop with no luck. Is there something simple I am missing here or do I need to be looking in to some kind of new sound card for my laptop? Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
