Trying to find a port for sound input on Philips DVI LCD TV.
Just got Sky HD and I am trying to find a port for sound input on a DVI HD Ready Philips 36 inch LCD TV; can't see model number (about two and a half years old). Can get sound (but no pictures) through AV slot. There is a headphone port but can't see anything for a phono jack.

You need to set your MAC video resolution to the native resolution of this TV in PC mode, please read your manual to find out what that is, if the resolution is set too high, the TV will not be able to display it.<br />

This TV has no HDMI input socket. It Has a DVI input socket. Therefore you will require an HDMI to DVI converter adapter or an HDMI to DVI cable. The DVI is video only so you will require audio cables from your Sky box (Audio L and R ) which will connect to the back left of your TV (Audio L/R sockets next to the s-video and component video connectors)
You will need an HDMI to DVI cable which are available in the shops, even ASDA has one but I don't know how good it is. Or you can buy an adapter that will plug into one of the ends of the HDMI cable and then plug into the DVI socket at the back of the TV. The DVI input is video only so you will need audio leads for sound. These will connect from the output of your source, say, blue ray or sky HD (Left and right audio sockets ) to the audio L/R at the back left of the TV (on the block next to the three component video connections and s-video connections)
Your TV has a DVI input connector, but no HDMI as you noted. Adapters (fondly called "dongles") are available to convert from the DVI connector to an HDMI jack so you can connect your HDMI source. Search for "dvi to hdmi adapter" with your favorite search engine and you will find them.
As for settings, this set has 720p resolution. Make sure your source is set accordingly, and you should be set to get the best quality you can with the connections available.
Please take a moment to give this solution a fixya rating if you've found it what you needed, and thanks for asking here!
look in the owners manual about installing devices or components--- sounds like you have something hooked up wrong that is not allowing the video and sound to work--- if that doesnt work--- try using a combination device and hooking the two items to it--then run that device's wires to the television
While the tv is on the right input, and the computer is running, try unhooking the cable and hooking it back in. That's the only way I can get my Philips to detect the HDMI signal from my pc. I haven't found a fix for it though.
to view anything in High definition you have to connect to your tv using either the DVI, Component or HDMI inputs.
Your cam or anything you want to view HD videos from will need to have a lead to suit these inputs, the component lead will consist of an input from camera to five seperate coloured leads or an oblong DVI connector or HDMI which looks similair to a usb connector.
You will need then on your tv to select the resolution of 720P or 1080I to view the HD picture.
