Hi Luregn

I do not have an answer for you regarding the cable, which appears to be audio only, however be certain 3.5mm is what you require.

There is a 4mm connector, and when a 3.5mm plug is used in such, sometimes the connection is poor and/or does not work. Only when you hold the two plugs together can the difference be seen, as 0.5mm is very small.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

Hi Mike
I will ask in one of the local shops to make sure.

The sionle yellow RCA connector is composite video. Audio connectors are red and white.

You can get an VGA to Composite converter in order to plug in to the TV . However, do not expect brilliant quality. It is likely to be poor.

You will also need an audio connector from you sound card to the TV depending on what yoe of audio input the TV has.

Hi all
Thank you all.
After reading your comments, especially the possible poor quality, I have decided to wait and see what else we could do.
One option being to watch the netflix movies over the office screen, not the best, though could work temporarily.
