I bought a Mini DisplayPort to DVI connector and connected that up to my TV and the picture is fine. However, when I connect the 3.5mm male to male cable from the MBP to the speakers which are plugged into the TV it does not work. I believe the speakers might be broke. The TV unfortunately does not have a headphone jack on it (for being a newer 50"ish Hitachi I find this odd). I was just wondering if using a 3.5mm male to RCA connecter would work? The cable is here. The picture shows up great on the TV, but I want the sound that is being played from the MacBook to be playing out of the TV speakers.
