How to connect PC sound card to an LCD TV?

I have a Gateway desktop with a standard sound card in it. The video is connected to a Vizio 42" LCD TV via VGA cable. We would like to connect the sound to the TV as well. There is no PC Audio input on the TV...just red and white RCA jacks. I looked for an adapter cable or sound card that had RCA jacks out, but got confused really quickly. All help is appreciated!

I Can Hear Just Fine, Thanks

TVFilter: I've got a newish Magnavox TV (model # 27MT3305/17) that has decided, whenever it turns on after being off for a few hours, that it's going to be on closed captioning (CC1). Obviously, I can just turn it off with the remote, but does anyone know how to stop making it the default setting?

"Gophers"

can you help? in 1990 there was a television series called Gophers. In short it was a comedy about a common type gopher family living next door to the very prim and proper rabbit family and the characters were all life size puppets. i have searched long and hard to find any information possible on this series and so far have managed to find only a short cast list and a small snippet from the theme tune and no one i know seems to remember it at all. Is it possible anyone has any information on what happened to the series and whether it was ever released on video?

SCART-hate and a mysterious Freeview signal

Please suggest a cheap/simple pvr

My grandpa enjoys recording TV shows off his satellite feed (DishNet, I believe). The problem is, while the VCR (heh) has a timer, it cannot change the channels and what not. So I found out that he gets up a few times a night to change the channel and what not. I think some sort of PVR is in order. What is the cheapest/simplest thing I can get? [more inside]
