I'm confused, are you connecting a monitor and a TV at the same time, or just the TV? If you're connecting to the TV through VGA you would need to connect the audio separately. HDMI connections can transfer both audio and video.

I realized through additional online research that my computer and/or TV would have needed an upgrade to stream. I chose a Roku box and am set up.
