Are you using HDMI input on the TV? Do you have an audio receiver? If so then it would be better to hook up the audio straight to that. If not then perhaps there is an audio setting to select an input?

Are you sure all cables are in working order? Which input are you using on your TV. Which ports in the back are you plugging it into?
I use the same setup. I have a Y adapter that converts the mini-phone into the audio RCA connections to connect to my receiver.
