I have an older Dell laptop: Latitude D520. I have hooked it up to my Sony Bravia TV, and got the video working fine with the VGA cable that came with the laptop. That is the only output the laptop has.
However, the only sound comes from the poor laptop speakers. I want to stream Netflix videos to the TV via this.
The laptop does not have any audio-out except the headphone sockets. If I hook a cable from the PC Audio In socket on the back of the TV to one of the headphone sockets on the laptop, would that work? In fact, if I use a Y-connector to both outputs, would that be OK?
I only ask here without testing it, as it is such a job to get to the back of the TV, I want to avoid that if possible unless it would work.
