    I have a Macbook and I want to connect it to an external TV (32"). I have succeeded in doing this using a DVI connector cable running from the TV to the Macbook. Is there anyway I can use the TV speakers as opposed to the sound from the Macbook? I want to watch movies but I only get sound from the laptop, and not the TV.

    Any help is much appreciated :)

    Assuming your TV has audio in (RCA jacks, 3.5 mm, optical) you should just be able to hook that up to the headphone/line-out jack on your MB with the appropiate cable.
