Getting Sound from PC to HDTV ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Nvidia 8800GTS 512 Graphics card and have run a 14 meter HDMI to HDMI cable using a DVI male to HDMI female adapter from the card to my Panasonic 37" HDTV http://www.soundandvision.co.uk/more...FQWxsgod_E75Ww
Picture quality is fine but I have no sound which I do need as the TV is in a different room to my PC, I thought that HDMI cables carried sound as well as video, how can I get round this?

I have the same problem. The only solution I was able to find was over $200

HDMI does carry the sound, but the video card doesn't make any sound of its own. You will have to get an adapter from your sound card to the TV. Something similar to this.

HDMI cables do carry sound, but you need an output that produces sound. Nvidia cards like the GTS don't do this. IIRC, some of the Radeon HD series will connect to your sound card and send the audio over the HDMI out, but your nvidia won't do that.

your best bet would be to do what I do when.

I run VGA from my wife's lappy direct to my TV and run digital sound to my receiver.

You may have to use various combinations, and possibly analog sound.
