    My TV has a 3.5mm jack for PC audio, do I just plug a cable like this from the laptop or PC to the TV and I will get audio from the TV or is there some sort of catch, it seems to easy.

    I had this problem with connecting my laptop to my tv so I made my own cable

    go to radioshack and get 2 3.5' connectors and some wire, and you can make one, all together mine costed a little more than a dollar;)

    You just need to find a 35mm jack cable, you can get them almost anywhere that sells anything to do with audio/video. I use one when connecting my old laptop to my LCDTV, now I just use the HDMI port :)

    If your on about the audio connections next to the D Plug there input as it says on the right side of the white box.
    So sound from laptop and picture would be possible though those 3 connections..

    EDIT: You will have to change the TV source to the D Plug connection
