Which TV is it?

If it's optical/SPDIF with either a coax or TOSLINK connector then one of these should do the trick.

I seem to have had the same issue and resolved it with the the converters you mention.

Most newer TV's don't have analogue audio outputs, my LG doesn't, so I had no option but to purchase a digital to analogue converter.

Double check the TV and see if it has either 2 phono audio outputs or a headphone jack, if not then your only audio output from the TV is the optical output and a converter is your only option.

As the others have said, if the only output is the optical out then you need a converter. If you need the optical lead (fibre optic cable) then I have spares I'm not using.

Hi betty

Ok, looking at your manual you don't have standard phono audio out connectors as you would find on older tv's. You do however have a headphone jack on the side which will give you an analogue audio output.
So all you need is a lead to go from the headphone jack to your netbook audio input and that should be it.

See page 9 of your TV manual here for the jack location:
http://www.cclonline.com/content/pdf...mEEg-3d-3d.pdf

The lead you'll need is one of these I suspect:
3.5mm Stereo Plug to Plug Lead : 3.5mm : Maplin Electronics

You'll need to make sure your volume levels are ok as a headphone jack is not a fixed line level output , it will change with the volume setting on the TV, but much cheaper than a digital to analogue convertor

Result....

Hi Betty,

Strange, you should have an output from the headphone socket, have you tried a pair of headphones, if so did they work?

It may be that you have the wrong input selected on your netbook or it may be your netbook does not have an audio in. What's the make and model of the netbook? What software are you using to record on the netbook as it could be a setting in the software?



So to check:
Try a pair of headphones in the headphone socket of the TV see if they work.
Confirm the netbook make & model so we can confirm if it actually has an audio input.
Tell us what software you are using on the netbook to capture the audio.
