So your computer is fine, it is the TV. Check the manual, you probably have to disable HDMI Audio and enable the RCA Input Audio.

well if you could hear sound on your headset when plugging in there, then yea...it is sending out audio. The TV is what is not ouputting sound then if when you plug in your TV (right affter headset works), it doesn't work.
