Yea they don't play audio, so I bought this to attach it next to the hdmi cable. Total I spent was about 12 bucks or so. The quality is very good btw.

It can get quite interesting to hook up your Laptop but here's what I used to do back in the days of S-Video (if your laptop is older). Here's what you need:
1- S-Video to RCA converter (radiosh@ck has them).
2- 3.5 mm male to 2-Way RCA converter (see above for buying it)
3- Regular RCA cable (White,Red, Yellow).
4- S-Video cable

And the connections, while obvious are:
Plug the S-video cable to your laptop on one end and the other on the converter.
Plug the RCA cable (yellow) on one end to the converter and the other end to the IN (yellow as well), on your TV.
Plug the 3.5 mm male to your laptop speakers or headphones jack.
Plug the White and red to the 2-Way RCA converter on one end and the other end to the IN (red to red, white to white) on your TV.

On your laptop you need to send the image to the TV like it was a projector. It should have a combination of keys to do this.
On your TV simply change to INPUT VIDEO.

If all goes well you should get the image of your desktop in that MONSTER TV. Cant tell you how good the quality of the video will be due to the size.
THIS IS ALL ASSUMING YOUR LAPTOP HAS S-VIDEO OF COURSE
If there is no S-Video than I dunno...
GOOD LUCK..

After 15 years.. AJVI are MINE, no time for DS only for show and wear!!

S-video and the like are better than nothing, but the quality's not going to be that great (analog). 


If you have a DVI out on your laptop, you can get a DVI to HDMI cable. This is preferred, since DVI is already a digital signal. 

If your TV has a regular VGA port (computer monitor), you can just do a VGA cable from the lappy to the tube.

If your laptop doesn't have DVI (like mine) and your TV doesn't have a VGA port, one alternative a lot of people don't think about is a port replicator/dock. 



You can get them pretty cheap online, and they've got every output imaginable (except usually HDMI). You'll still have to run audio, but it's easier from the dock and you'd have to do that separately on your laptop anyway. Another bonus of this method is that there's no swapping and unplugging cables all the time. You have this near your TV somewhere all hooked up, and just drop your laptop in when you want to use it. Plus it charges your laptop while it's connected.

Which is what I tried once but the audio doesn't carry over to my HDTV.

^^ Only HDMI carries digital video and audio together. All other ways of sending video have no audio component. 


Get an RCA splitter that will plug into your laptop's headphone jack (3.5mm jack).

I'm just assuming your old HP doesn't have a mini display port. Do you have it? Usually macs have it, not many pcs.
