Question about Televison & Video
If i want the sound to transmit from my dvd player to my flat screen do i need an hdmi cable or the audio cable? i already have it setup so that you can get the picture but there is no sound.
The Flat Screen is a Sharp and the dvd player is a toshiba
It depends on the TV.
On my Phillips TV this is switchable via the TV setup menu, and you get no sound with HDMI unless you change that setting.
The reason it's switchable is that the HDMI input is usually common with one of the component-video inputs (AV3 on mine). (cost saving move)
Thus if the menu is set to hdmi, then the audio goes thru hdmi. If it's set to 'component' then it goes thru the RCA patch cable.
