Hey everyone. I'll keep it simple by providing pictures.
I got a Dell MMS 5650, and it has three wires (Green, "Orange", and Black) to connect to the TV. Except the TV I'm going to get ONLY has a headphone jack. Here is the TV I want:
http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/emerson-39-lcd-tv/10074050?trail=SRCH%3Aemerson&fromPLP=true&ancestorID=alldept&searchString=emerson&moduleName=S0011&startSearch=yes&fromSearchBox=true&addFacet=SRCH%3Aemerson#product-info-features
No optical ports for either of the devices. I've check all kinds of receiver and they seem to only take "old-school" wires.
Using a 3 way 1 male 3 female splitter, as I understand, will just give me the same sound on all 5 speakers. I ordered one anyway, just for the purpose of having all the speakers giving out sound, rather is true surround or not.
Here are pictures:
So what receiver works for this? Will I need a converter so I can use it on a receiver?
Thanks a lot

You don't connect self-powered speakers to a receiver.
Return those PC SPEAKERS for a set of speakers intended to work with a receiver...instead of a PC.

Pick one. It isn't working for both...
Although, if your PC has HDMI, buy an AVR(the receiver you are thinking of) and a set of speakers meant for a receiver.
Bottom line. To "make those work" with an AVR requires an AVR with pre-outs.
An AVR with pre-outs will cost 5 times what you spent on those speakers.
Look up the Yamaha RX-V667. Look at the BACK PANEL in pictures. That is what you need. An AVR with pre-outs. Period.
