    Hi,

    I want to watch the lord of the rings extended trilogy which I recently got on my laptop. I want to watch it on my TV of course so I've connected my TV and my laptop via the RGB cable, and for the sound I used the 3,5 mm male jack on both sides which goes from pc headphones output to tvs sound input.

    Now what happens is that it seems that the audio is not in time with the video, so I can hear the conversation before it actually happens. However, on the laptop everything runs fine, but on the tv the video is late. How to fix this? My laptop doesn't have a HDMI output unfortunately. And I can't burn it to DVD because the movie is in .mp4 format. I can't even watch it on usb because the player I have does not support mp4 movies. And all those converters are terribly slow and reduce the video quality + none of them is really free.

    Thanks in advance.

    The media player on the PC or the TV may have an option to delay the audio.
