    If the TV has audio and video inputs a cable with a scart plug on one end and three phonos on the other should do. Some cables are directional so make sure that you get a Scart to phono cable and not the other way round.

    I've never seen audio and video sockets that are both in and out as they are normally one or the other. A pair of red and white audio out sockets will be used to connect the sound to external speakers or an amplifier whilst a pair of audio inputs will be used to connect up a camcorder but the same pair of sockets won't do both.
