Question about ViewSonic N3000W 30 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
Hello, I have this N3000w connected to a Freeview box which has a HDMI port and I have the cable but since the TV doesn't have this socket I have bought a DVI/HDMI connector. When I choose the DVI input (no HDMI input available on menu) the image is great but there is an empty sound coming from the TV. If I choose a different input such as scart, both image and sound work, so I know there is no problem with the speakers...can you please suggest something so that I can get the best of the picture with the DVI/HDMI connectors AND hear something??? Thanks a million..
DVI input has no sound as normal you can use a RCA connection to get sound from the freeview box

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!

Separate analog audio cables are not required (see
illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may
not output digital audio signals. In that case, you
may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.
However, if you connect analog audio cables with
this connection, the HDMI terminal on the TV will
not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.
To ensure that the HDMI or DVI device is reset
properly, it is recommended that you follow
• When turning on your electronic components,
turn on the TV first, and then the HDMI or
• When turning off your electronic components,
turn off the HDMI or DVI device first, and
then the TV.

(HDMI type A connector)
For proper operation, the length of an HDMI-to-
DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).
The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables
