I don't know what DTV is but if you just mean TV then the back of the HT520 has TV AUDIO in sockets to connect to a TV.

Unless your TV is equally old it is unlikely to have analogue stereo sockets out, but all is not lost. If the TV has a headphone socket then you can use that. You will need a lead like this 3.5mm headphone jack to two phono plugs.

Same cable as above if you use the headphone socket on the laptop.

Are you sure your TV does not have a headphone socket? They no longer put them on the front but usually tucked away round the back. My Sony has the socket there and there is no indication of it even existing.
