I wonder if it is the cable or jack (laptop / TV) that's the problem. Plug in headphones to the laptop and play something. If you hear sound, then the laptop is fine which means it either the cable or the TV's 3.5 audio input jack. Are you sure the TV's audio jack is for input not output?
Headphones work ok with the laptop. The TV's audio jack just shows a pair of headphones so I don't know if it's input or output ... there are other holes but none of them fit the headphone plug. Can't understand what's happening....
Oh gawd so it's just not going to work. The only input near the VGA is a different size, smaller I think and it says SPDIF next to it. There are another two sets of 3 holes available again a smaller size to cable I have. A green, a blue and a red set and another set yellow white and red.
