I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to do.

Are you wanting , for some reason , to play the sounds that play on your laptop via your TV set ?

Or...are you watching TV pgm's on your laptop & want to hear that sound on your external TV set ?

make sure the connection at the tv is for input
you will also have to put the tv on an accessory channel for it to play the sound
i'm guessing you are using a stereo mini-plug to rca adapter?

my point is make sure the plugs on the tv are "audio in" not "audio out" there can be both kinds on the back. (they should be marked).
usually though they are "in" only if they are on the front of the tv.
do you have a speaker with the rca cable to plug in to the tv to see if you can hear the sound from the jacks you are trying to use.. or to plug your laptop into... maybe you have a bad cable.

that's all i've got

ok, thanks for you help if i can't get it working i will have to try something else!

I can connect my laptop to TV so screen shows up on tv, but is it possible to have on laptop screen on windows media player where i can add songs etc, but then showing on the tv the battery affect on windows media player on full screen (alt + enter) so people can't see on tv what songs are being added until they play, is this possible to do at all?

Many Thanks
Louis
