VGA Cable Question

See below:

Gembird 10m Premium Dual Shielded VGA Cable with Double Ferrite Core: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

I want to connect this from my PC to my LCD which is 25 feet away.....video connections are all fine....however,what about audio ?

My TV will pick the VGA up as a source...should it then broadcast audio or do i need another connection ???

I use a pair of cheap speakers plugged to the earphone connection to get sound from my PC at the moment.

Would this help ? 3.5mm Jack to 2 x RCA Phono Audio Cable Gold 10m Lead: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

Just need advice if this should work

VGA cable doesn't carry audio, so yes, you'd need a second cable from the audio out of the PC to the TV. There should be two phono connectors on the back of the tv, and if you get that second cable, that would work.

The only issue would be that both those cables are metric (10m), and you need imperial ones (25ft), so you'll need to buy a metric to imperial converter.






...oh, sorry, I thought you were blond - worth a try!
