^^ you have have got a svideo to AV coverter with your card, connect that to the svideo port and the other end to the TV , switch to the AV on your TV and goto control panel > nvidia settings, from here you can enable TV out, usually it will automatically get detected.

you have to connect the Audio input of TV to the Audio Out/Line Out of you computer.

EDIT: if you can then please post the screenshot of the cable.

And chicha.. the red blue green is to connect to you DVD input of TV , the red doesnot carry audio :p.
