I want DVI to HD but am confused about sound

  cocymsc 22:41 28 Jul 2008

I have a geforce card with a DVI output and am lookin to hook it up to my tv to play blu rays from the PC in HD on tele. I have the dvi to hd cable but this doesnt carry sound.

I was wondering how, on the HD channel i will be watching the films through, I get sound aswell. is it simlply a jack from the speaker output in the pc to red/white phono leads into the TV or is it more complicated? Will this bring the sound through on that particular channel?

i dont want sound through the pc speakers as they are on different side of the room

You need sound cables to connect the sound card, With White Red and Black RCA plugs, Line out on Sound Card

You need the audio cables (red and white) DVI does not carry audio like hdmi.

I use DVI to HDMI but it needs sound cable to get sound

its a 9800gtx. as far as i kno it wont carry sound. people are saying sound cables BUT if im watching it on a hdmi channel will the audio come through on it aswell? as in there are scart channels (av) s-videos and hdmi's but theyre all designed to have vid and sound carried in through their specific slots, so if i bring video in one slot and put a sound cable in a seperate slot they wont both b on the same channel will they? im not looking at buyin an ati card, iv asked pcworld guys , said i need a seperate surround sound thing to get it on that channel, n asked tv guys they said its not poss neither?
