    Hi all,

    Need suggestions about speakers (2.1 or 5.1) for WD HD TV & iPOD. It should work for both.

    I am aware that WD TV has sound out as TOSLINK & HDMI. Which speakers will be best for it ?

    Here are few in my mind, - Logitech X 540, Altec MX5021 etc etc

    I am not sure which speakers comes with TOSLink & HDMI connectivity :( Please help.

    for 2.1: MX-5021 for clarity and Logitech Z-2300 for boom boom booooooom
    for 5.1: Logitech X-540 for good surround and Onkyo HT-S3200 for terrific sound with external huge amp that is the best in 20k.

    yes you can connect 2.1 speakers to that HD Media player but you cannot connect analogue 5.1. To use 5.1, you have to use Optical out to amplier or connect to HDTV using HDMI cable and connect 5.1 spakers to TV's analogue 5.1 out (if it has)

    2.1:

    ON the rear of the player, you will find one red and one white colored port. you need to buy a cable that has two RCA (red and yello) male connectors on one side and 3.5 mm male connector on the other side.
    like this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?VISuperSize&item=150093338426

    A high quality cable will cost around 500 bucks.

    5.1:

    1) Use HDMI cable to connect to HDTV and if your TV has analouge 5.1 RCA out, use similar cables to connect to 5.1 channel speakers
    2) use optical out to connect to amplifier like the one in Onkyo HS-S3200 or Logitech Z-5500.
