    Do you need to change the video input? Or possibly the channel? My guess is the video input though.

    Sounds like your initial problem was that you were seeing the "extended" desktop and not a "mirror" of your own desktop; apparently you got that worked out.

    Yes, you'll need a second cable to output from the headphone jack of your Mac to the sound input of your TV if you want audio as well.
