I have now tried connecting an MP3 player to the TV's Audio In jack. Sound comes out of the TV speakers and stops as soon as I connect the video cable.Dream wrote:Have you checked whether the audio is absent at the computer end, or the TV end? Link up the DVI->HDMI such that the audio isn't coming through, then connect an MP3 player instead of the computer and see if audio comes out of the TV. My guess is that it won't. I suspect the TV is prioritising the digital audio stream over the DVI connector, and your soundcard either does not, or isn't set to send audio via that connection.
Then the manual has not one, but two whacking grievous errors in it, as there would be no point to connecting analog audio at the same time as digital video in that case.The TV manual may simply have omitted that it defaults to digital audio when it expects it.
It's a GTS 250, with two DVI outputs.PhoenixEnigma wrote:What video card are you using?
Everything I've seen thus far indicates that a DVI connection is completely incapable of carrying an audio signal.Some ATi cards had a feature that allowed them to output audio through a DVI->HDMI adapter, but apparently not all adapters would work, and I suspect you'd have to enable it somewhere on the PC side.
As I mentioned, that works well enough, but I can't get the same maximum resolution over VGA as I can over DVI.If that's not an option, maybe a DVI->VGA adapter?
But DVI does not work that way! Or am I reading this wrong?GeorgeH wrote:It sound like your GTS250 is capable of outputting sound over DVI
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI#Audio_supportSince the DVI specification does not support audio-transport, an interoperability problem arises when an HDMI-source drives a legacy DVI-display (such as a PC monitor), or conversely, when a DVI-source drives an HDMI-display. While HDMI and DVI compliance rules ensure that a DVI video-connection can be successfully negotiated and established (via a mutually supported display mode), the audio signal must still be transported through means outside of the DVI connection.
