I just hope that he didn't go out and buy that thing. My understanding is that he already has video, just needs sound.

The white and the red audio cables need to be hooked up to some sort of speakers. You can use computer speakers with an RCA-->FEMALE 3.5mm plug ADAPTER (go to radioshack with the RCA's and the set of speakers you want to hook up, you'll be able to figure it out from there.) An alternative (more expensive probably) is to buy a stereo with RCA inputs. Any LARGE stereo, even those from the 80s, will have RCA inputs. Another alternative is to buy a stereo with an "MP3/MICROPHONE/MINI-DISK" input and buy a RCA-->MALE 3.5mm plug ADAPTER (again, radioshack).

How much do you want to spend for sound? I could make suggestions on a setup to use if I knew your price range.

Oh, and ANOTHER alternative is to use any stereo with a tape deck, buy a car tape-->portable Cd player tape deck.

You'll need
1.) Car Tape --> Portable CD player adapter (looks like a cassette tape with a cord on it)
2.) RCA --> 3.5mm FEMALE plug adapter

Oh, and I forgot to mention, whichever RCA-->3.5mm adapter you run (if you run one) make sure it accepts BOTH RCA's not just ONE. That way you make sure you'll keep stereo sound.
