Dvi carries video only- no audio. apple TV has optical out only for audio. if you don't have an optical audio input on your sound source you can get an optical analog converter for about $40

That's weird... I just looked at the back of my set Sony KE-32TS2U and it has a DVI port.

SOURCE: DVD/VCR hook up to HDTV. No audio on DVD or VCR, no video on VCR

When you use component audio, it may shut off the side a/v audio settings. Try restoring all defualts (any changes you have made will be lost by doing so) according to p. 32 of the manual:
Menu --> Setup --> Reset --> Yes

SOURCE: No sound when my computer is connected to my Sony Bravia TV

If your computer has a svga output use input 7 on tv with vga to vga cable and 3.5-3.5 Radioshack 42-2387 cable for audio for best results. If you use the dvi to hdmi on input 6 on tv use 3.5- rca Radioshack part number 42-2551 1/8=3.5mm.

SOURCE: I am trying to hook up my wii to my LED TV. It

You don't need component cables. Just use the regular AV connector that comes with the Wii and put the video (yellow) in the video spot that is also labeled "VIDEO" and "Y" on the tv...but the red and white (left and right audio) need to go into the farthest red and white connections...DO NOT put them into the ones labeled "Component Pr and Pb." It works perfectly...I just had to figure this out myself.

My ?LEVIA TV is connected to DirecTV cable box the TV has a great picture it is in DVI MODE but we Get No Sound can you please help me


DVI connection doesn't do sound... If your TV only has DVI, you need to run audio separately from the cable box. (DVI stands for Digital Video Interface. No sound part to it.)
Likely better to use a different interface.

I just bought a phillips blu ray and trying to hook it up to my sanyo 50" plasma through a hdmi i get video but no sound the tv says to use the dvi port and audio 3 inputs but the blu ray does not hav


Hello there, the hdmi cable is a great way to get high definition video from a bluray player to a tv, but if the bluray player is part of a surround sound system you will need to get the sound to the tv separately. There is often a red and white audio terminal in the rear of the bluray player, sometimes located next to a yellow terminal, these are known as a component connection as each component (coloured terminal) is separate and operates a separate function, but all 3 connections can be used together to create a SCART equivalent. You may need to connect an 'Audio Component to 3.5mm jack' cable from the white and red terminals to the headphone/line in socket on the tv.

alternatively, as wilth my player, there is a button on the remote which switches the audio source from component, hdmi, SCART, etc, this may be the same for you.

hope this helps.

How to connect apple tv


Officially Apple does not support DVI, only HDMI. DVI does NOT carry audio signals. You may need to use an Optical Audio cable for the sound.

What type of cords do I need to hook up a akia PDP4273m1 to my cable box


Which cable box are you trying to connect to the PDP4273m1? The best choice of cable will depend on the outputs available on the cable box. If your cable box has HDMI (looks like a rectangle with small cutouts on one long side) out, get an HDMI (type A on both sides) video cable and connect it between that port and the TV's HDMI in. (This connection doesn't require an extra audio cable.) If your cable box has a DVI (out, get a DVI to HDMI adapter and the HDMI cable (or a DVI to HDMI cable). Connect the DVI side to the cable box and then the HDMI cable to the TV Then get an RCA audio cable (two male ends on each side, usually red and white). Connect this to the audio out jacks on the cable box and to the DVI audio in ports on the TV.

If you do not have either of those outputs, check for a component video/audio output. Get the component video cable (with 3 RCA plugs on each end - red, blue and green) and an RCA audio cable. Match the colors on each side as you connect the devices.

If those aren't available, the S-video or composite video cables will work. The composite video cable comes with the audio connectors (red, white, yellow RCA plugs). They aren't part of the S-video cable and must be obtained separately. These are limited to standard video (no HD) so they are not the best choices with your tv.

If your cable box has SCART out, you will need an adapter for that. Most provide composite or S-video out. See http://www.svideo.com/scart2.html for one of these. Note: you will need to match the adapter to the CART output or get a converter.

The connections should be from the left side: serial port (RS-232 for service), HDMI, digital audio out (for connecting to a home theater receiver), DVI audio In, two component video and audio in, a composite video/audio in and out and an S-video with audio in. The manual for the PDP4273M1 is available from Retrevo here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Akai-PDP4273M1-TVs-manual/id/741bh140/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to download the manual.

i hope this helps. Please add a comment with your cable box make/model/provider if you want more help.

(very few TVs come with the A/V cables these days. Some set-top boxes will come with the composite video cables.)

Bought the belkin vga audio video cable to hook up my pc to my sony 52" lcd tv but the connecion in back of the tv is much bigger than the vga. is there others way of making it work?


It is possible that the connection behind your tv is DVI.
Do you have a DVI out from your video card on your pc? It would look like the same port from the back of your TV. If you have HDMI or DVI out from your pc you can interconnect to an HDMI or DVI to the back of you tv. All of the adapters and cables exist. The only thing you can't (yes you can but too expensive and impractical and rare) to do is to go from VGA to HDMI / DVI. You can go from HDMI / DVI to VGA but not the other way around.

Hope this helps.

On your PS3, go to the Settings tab, then scroll down to the "Sound Settings".

Once in Sound Settings, select "Audio Output Settings"

Here you should have 3 options: HDMI; Optical Digital; and Audio Input Connector

Choose Optical Digital

You should be all set.

Also, make sure after doing this your stereo is on the correct channel.

I have a macbook and want to hook up to my dynex 24 inch tv. I am successful using (mini dvi to dvi to hdmi) connection to the tv receiving great video. My problem is that I have no been able to get audio...


Your mac would have to have a fully hd compliant mini port. To be honest I havent even checked to see if any do. Then you would want to get a mini video port to HDMI adapter. If you don't have one of the newer Intel mac then chances are you cant do sound through that port, which is what your tv is looking for on the hdmi port.

Easiest solution is to hook your headphone port on your laptop to a stereo or some decent computer speakers, which usually sound better than tv speakers anyway.

I have a Star Choice canadian Satellite and hooked up the DVI to the HDMI on my Tv I get a great HD picture but no sound i tried the Audio cable as per the instructions but still no sound will i need a...


dvi is just video. hdmi has both video and audio. dvi is still used because it is a standard for computers.

connect the audio from the audio rca jack to your TV / speakers. If you have surround sound you should use the SPDIF optical audio port - it'll be cleaner and support all channels.

Remember audio has to go to an amplifier or all-in-one box, which goes to your speakers. If your speakers are built into your tv you should be able to plug it in directly and then select the audio channel on your TV. If you plug it in and you still don't hear anything it's a problem with selecting the correct audio input on your TV / amplifier

Hdmi and audio


It may be the top of set box.. Most times the sound and picture are auto detected by the set when HDMI is used. Both sound and video are carried in a HDMI cable but not with a S video cable. Try another HDMI cable *** dont buy the expensive one the tv don't care if they cost $125 or $25.

Hdmi/dvi


Here is the link to the user manual for the TV if you need it; http://www.haier.com/admin/en/product/upload/42EP24S-UM.pdf Check page 7 - The DVI input has next to it an audio input - DVI does not carry audio as HDMI does - you need to plug a seperate mono audio cable from your cable box to the TV at the DVI Audio input (top of page 12). The Audio needs to be in the one next to the DVI socket in order to work at the same time as the picture from the same "source" selection. Check page 18 "CATV Type" and make sure this is set to the correct one for your cable box Check page 21 that all the audio settings are logical and nothing is turned right down or muted. If none of this helps then please post back. What make and model is Your Cable box? Hope this helps :)
