VGA doesnt transmit sound, maybe buy a headphone jack to headphone jack port? if your tv accepts incoming sound through a headphone jack?

You need to check the sound input for your TV - some have phono ports, some use a 3.5mm headphone port (and some use both, Samsung have phono ports for the HDMI but 3.5mm for the VGA). Then it's just a case of getting either a 3.5mm to twin phono cable or a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable.

If you dig out the manual it should have a diagram of the rear of the TV and label what all the ports are - if you have a pair of ports which are red and white, those are phono connections which need a 3.5mm to phono cable. However if it's a single smaller port which doesn't protrude, it's a 3.5mm port and a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable you need.

I had a quick search for a manual to allow me to have a look and see but I can't see one.
