    Hey I have Bought a 7600GS I wanna connect my TV to my card
    I was successful in connecting it to the tv I am able to watch videos
    But Problem is that I am not able to hear the sound from my TV
    Instead It comes from the computer. I have connected It using a composite
    cable as my tv is abit old one. I has got only 4 composite connections
    AUDIO IN/OUT & VIDEO IN/OUT. So for gettin sound what i shud connect my TV
    with.
    I have an ASRock 775Dual 915GL MOBO
    The card has come with a connector Having 5 outputs S video, Composite,
    HDTV, and two more composite outputs Whose functions i dont know But one is
    red coloured & the other one is green

    To get audio connect the audio out from ur mobo/soundcard to the audio in (RCA "red" and "white" connector) of ur TV. The gfx card's TV-out only has video signal.

    graphics cards do not come with audio output

    newer HDCP complient can pass-through audio through them though, but thats different

    Why get confused? See, to connect ur pc to TV for viewing movies u need two seperate cable for audio and video.
    *****The video cable will connect the tv-out of ur gfx to video-in of ur TV(yellow color).
    *****The audio cable (the one stated above) will connect to the front speaker output (green color) of ur soundcard/onboard audio to the audio in (red and white color) of ur TV.
