just a quickie question...if i connect a HDMI - DVI cable from my pc to tv...does that also transmit the audio ? ( assuming everything else is corretly set up etc etc) or would i still need a seperate audio cable connected ?..i only ask as at the moment i use vga cable on my plasma tv with a seperate audio cable...works a treat ! BUT on my lcd tv in bedroom i can get a great picture but NO sound by connecting vga to vga & audio cable...so would a HDMI-DVI possibly sort the problem out ( assuming no other faults/errors with upstairs tv...if the cable would/could work..which should i use...a HDMI-DVI or just a HDMI ? many thanks in advance ps i did post this on another thread so full apologies
hi guys..thanks for the info & link...so then...if i get an HDMI cable only..it will carry audio AND video from pc to tv ...having looked at the previous link from MONOUX showing a HDMI cable..it looks to me like it has what i would call a usb connection on both ends..that correct?...so then, would i just put one end into a usb connection on my pc & the other end into the HDMI connection on my tv ?) is it that straight forward ( except for possible tuning or screen settings,graphics card etc etc ?) if it is the way it seems can anyone point me in the right direction to get the best HDMI cable without it being overly expensive..cheers again guys "
sorry guys...just had a proper read up on the HDMI cable...it is NOT a usb connection i now know...as i have only a vga & usb sockets on my pc...am i stuck then with vga & seperate audio cable to get sound & vision from laptop to tv now? or is there other options...any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated..sorry about above post concerning HDMI looking like usb cables....i should learn to read before i act !!
sorry about the confusion....i currently use a vga to vga connection to show pc on tv( & also use a seperate audio cable)works fine...i do not have any other connections on my pc apart from usb,ethernet & vga ...but on my tv's i do have HDMI & VGA connections..BUT i was trying to find out if there was another option i could use which would use less cables & also transmit audio at same time ( as tv upstairs will not pick up the audio)...hope this has made my question a bit clearer..cheers !
