Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook
The only option is using the VGA port on the Aspire One to hook it up to the TV.
Your TV must have a VGA in port for your to be able to hook your computer to your TV. All you need is a regular VGA cord.

Aspire One Netbook video is only VGA output on a DB-15 connector at the left side of the unit. This video is intended for an external VGA monitor or a projector that accepts a VGA input. Some TVs have VGA input capability and this would be apparent in that it would have a DB-15 connector at the back of the unit. A VGA cable with male DB-15 connectors on each end would then be used to connect between the netbook and the TV. Once the cable is connected and the VGA capable TV is on, press and hold the Fn key (at the lower left of the keyboard) then press F5 (at the top middle of the keyboard) to get a pop-up bar in the middle of the screen that allows the video to be switched to the internal screen, to both screens, to external screen, or to a 800x600 dpi projector by pressing F5 multiple times.

Testimonial: "very helpfull"
LOL, nope, that's the way it works. The sound will come from the netbook. If you want the sound to come from the TV you will need to run a audio cable out of the Netbook's Headphone Jack to the RCA input Jacks on the TV.
Bascially you will need a cable with a 3.5mm Stereo Male end for the Netbook headphone Jack and the other end will have 2 RCA Male for the TV's Audio Jack.
You can buy them at:
just look for audio cables
3.5mm Stereo Male to 2 RCA Male
They are real cheap 6 ft. less than $2.00, 12 ft. less than $3.50
You can get 25ft or 50ft also
