Getting audio to work when connecting your computer to your TV

by on June 8, 2009

Q: I have connected my computer running Windows XP to my older TV via a VGA to S-Video converter. The video works fine. I am having difficulty with the audio. I connected an audio cable from my PC tower to the L & R audio inputs on the front of my TV but I still do not get any sound. I have tested the sound coming out of my computer and it works fine with the with head phones so I think the problem is on the TV side.

A: Instead of connecting the audio to the front of your TV you should connect the audio to the nearest audio connection on the back of the TV where you are connecting your S-Video. Most TVs have an audio input for each video input. This means that you usually need to connect the audio to the audio input that goes with the video input you are using.

You should be able to find more details in your manual or if you have lost your manual you can usually download a PDF version of your manual from the manufacturers website.
