    Here is how I understand it. Three of the cables (Red, Green, Blue) are the cables used to send the video to the tv. That makes me believe that the other two cables are for sound.

    If your tv does not have enough connectors, then u must find a different type of cable.

    *> The cable u now have with 5 connectors is called a "Component AV cable" for psp
    *> If your tv only has 3 connectors, you will need a cable with 3 connectors called a "Composite AV cable" for psp
    *> VERY IMPORTANT: Your tv MUST support something called "progressive scan", else you can only use your psp to look at photos from your psp (maybe videos). BUT NOT GAMES :-(

    What PSP do you have. Do you have the bigger older one, or the new slim model?

    Yes you can play games on a TV screen with your PSP. Just make sure your tv has the proper connections. else, you need to the the "Composite AV" cable for your PSP.
