Hello,
I am trying to connect my PC straight to my new HDTV. I'll worry about surround sound later (baby steps). So far, I've been able to get a VGA-cable image that is immaculate but I've tried EVERY possible connection for audio and I hear nothing. I am trying to streamline movies from Netflix. Every time I go to Best Buy they send me home with 3 new cables which don't work. Please tell me which one would work? Would a USB cable work? My PC is old so I can't use an HDMI cable. It has audio output with a picture of headphones (color green) and my HDTV has Left and Right audio Component/AV (color red and white). Maybe they're incompatible? How can I circumvent these connections? Thank you!

Thanks! I believe Best Buy gave me one of those cables but there were no instructions and I didn't know I had to set it up using the menu on my TV. All I found is the input set up for VGA or HDMI. My TV came with no manual, just basic instructions; and if you don't have what they show, you're doomed.
