This is a bit complicated since there is no HDMI output capability to the PC, only VGA and DVI. First, check to see if the Bravia has one of its HDMI ports listed as DVI capable. If it does, it should have accompanying audio jacks (red/white) for it. What you would need to get is two different cables for interface. The first is a DVI-to HDMI cable to run from the PC DVI port to the Bravia DVI-compatible HDMI port. You cannot run the DVI to a regular HDMI port because if you do you will get only picture and no sound. DVI outputs, unlike HDMI outputs, do not carry the audio signal. A DVI-compatible HDMI port on a TV set will connect the video from the HDMI port and the audio from the reserved audio port accompanying it. The second cable you need will be a mini stereo audio plug to RCA jacks. This will connect between the PC audio out (green), and the DVI audio plugs on the set. See pictures for cables below
Once you have this done, selecting the appropriate HDMI port on the set should result in audio and video getting to the unit. If you only need the video (you are going to use the PC speakers), then you don't need the audio cable and you can use any HDMI port, but you cannot control the volume using the TV set remote. You would need to use the PC volume settings. (Just as an afterthought if the set has no DVI-compatible HDMI port).
You may use an HDMI / DVI cable to connect to your computer. Next if you have windows 7 hold your windows key and hit the letter "P" (for projector) this will allow you to bring on the multi-montior feature on your computer. Make sure to select the option that says EXTEND. Please note that when connecting a DVI device you must use the HDMI IN1 (dvi) jack on the back of your TV. you cannot use HDMI In 2.
1. Turn off your TV and all connected equipment. 2. Connect an HDMI/DVI cable or DI-HDMI adapter between the HDMI in 1 (dvi) jack on the back of your TV and DVI OUT jack on the DVI device. 3. Connect an audio cable between the DVI audio IN jacks on the back of your tv and the DVI audio jack on the dvi device. turn on the tv then turn on the dvi device.
It will depend on your video output options on the computer. If you have HDMI output, just use an HDMI cable and an audio cable (this will need to be a 3.5 mm to RCA audio cable). If you have a DVI output, use a DVI to HDMI cable and the audio cable (or a DVI to HDMI adapter and either a DVI or HDMI cable depending on which side you want to put the adapter). If you only have VGA out from the computer, use a VGA to DVI adapter and the DVI to HDMI connection and the audio connection. (Theoretically this should work but each adapter will have some signal loss issues.)
Some graphics cards have a video output, S-video or Component video, which would also connect to your TV with the audio cable. (Read your cards manual for more information)
I hope this helps.

I think I know what the problem is. I have the same tv and been going through the same thing. Looking in the manual it says you need to get sound through the pc audio its the green audio jack. you have to get a female Y analog to pc cable. I saw one on ebay for $2. My problem is I've also got my computer hooked up.
Okay...my first contribution to any forum but I have the same problem (Yamaha RX-V663 and Samsung Blu Ray) and found the solution. The problem is you probably have your HDMI cables from your DVD player and reciever connected to a DVI input on your TV. The DVI may have problems communicating--not HDCP compliant. My system was working great then I hit a button on my remote...just playing around. I think it was the pure audio and I turned off the receiver. After that, the audio worked but there was no video. After many frustrating hours, the fix was to unplug the HDMI and DVI cable then turn the power off, cycle the power again, and plug the HDMI and DVI cables back in (the DVI was the last cable plugged in, not sure if that matters). By unplugging everthing you've reset the communication between the HDMI components and the DVI TV.
See page 18 of the yamaha owners manual, second to last note on bottom right of the page. It says there may be a problem...
I also noticed that the yamaha reciever was sending 1080p (my older tv is 1080I) and that is why the video wouldn't display on the TV. You can see this in the video signal info screen, unfortunately there is no setting to switch it back, just recycle the cables and power and it should reset.
Uncredibly frustrating but I got my picture back!
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.
The DVI input on this set is meant for picture only.. ex. to display computer picture.
if you want audio with your picture. you must connect to either inputs YCBCr or YPbPr which both of those inputs has audio inputs.
Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.
