    Hello all,

    I was told at two different department stores that I would only need a PC audio cable to receive sound through my TV. The problem is that all the cables I find have a headphone jack on one end and red/white cables on the other end, but my TV needs a headphone jack as well. Can anyone recommend me a solution? Thank you for your help!

    If your TV has stereo audio input,the connectors may be on the back
    and would use the cable you described.
    If all you have is a headphone jack on the front,then it is output
    only and you can't run your audio through that.
    What TV do you have?

    As Triple6 said, a male - male 3.5audio jack should be easy to find. Most electronic stores have them (ie. Best Buy, Circuit City).

    I have a 32" Toshiba 720p LCD HDTV and the headphone jack is in the back of the TV. I believe I need the cable described and shown in the link. I will check both Best Buy and Circuit City's website for such a cable. Thank you!
