(senseless loss of usable technology. *sigh*)
Anyway... I was at Radio Shack last night, buying the four adapters necessary to hook up a single pair of earphones to my new soundcard, when it occurred to me they might have something more convenient than a broken VCR for making that conversion. Sure enough, there was a quick and easy solution available. $29 RF Adapter. I brought it home without a moment's hesitation.
So, now I'm looking around, and I can't remember for the life of me what I'd wanted to hook up to the television, or more importantly: why.
Ah well. I need some music in here anyway. Hooking up the Playstation so I can play audio CDs...
