Great Cable but Not what I needed!!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Belkin Audio Y Cable Splitter 1-Mini Plug, 2-RCA Plugs (6 feet) (Electronics)
This cable is great but not what I needed, some if not most LCD HD TVs cannot
combine this audio (analog through video input) with digital HDMI output, or Monitor PC output.
So beware! unless you want all analog video and audio through your laptop output, then do not buy this,
Unless you want to connect a 3.5 jack device to larger speakers etc.
I found a newer solution to my Macbook to TV problem,
I hooked up the Mini DVI to HDMI cable fine, beautiful output...
and then connected usb powered and 3.5 jack compatible
speakers to my Macbook, and boom video and audio.

So you just use the HDMI for video only to your tv from your computer? And for sound you just hooked up speakers to your computer?

Yes, see HDMI hook up is entirely digital..where as these cables are analog.
The two cannot combine in most TVs.
So I hook up the HDMI cable to my TV and Macbook, then I use USB powered speakers with a 3.5 jack and attach them to my macbook.

I wish I would've read this review earlier. I'm having the same problem, thankfully my graphics card will arrive shortly, which should provide video AND sound to my LCD from my desktop. Cables are good quality material though, wish they would work with the HDMI, they seem like they really pack a punch

HDMI allows video and audio to be transmitted. You should not need an additional cable, unless what ever you are sending your video to cannot handle audio output.

as I said, Mini DVI cable hook up on my macbook only transferred video, no audio. So these cables did not work for my macbook to TV transfer. I was trying to watch netflix (back then) on my tv...but now have a roku device and don't need the setup.
