Most PCs only have stereo 3.5mm audio jacks (to plug headphones / computer speaker systems etc. into). Conversely, most TVs have only phono (RCA) inputs for sound usually color-coded Left (white), Right (red) which are paired with a composite video input (Yellow).

So, you would probably be OK with a 3.5mm to stereo phono cable such as http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/PH201.html

Run both audio and video to the tv, then use the tv optical audio out to go back to the receiver. The problem is, when you split the signal, the tv takes longer to decode the hdmi signal =, thus delaying it from the original audio signal.

No sound when I hook the HDMI cable from my laptop to my Hisense LCD 32 in tv


I don't know the settings/menu of your tv, but for me I use a headphone jack to rca lead. The headphone end plugs into sound output like headphones and rca plugs into audio amplifier. Lead available at electrical/home entertainment retailer. If your computer has digital audio compatible with your tv you may be able to try that.

How do i use my computer and pc to tv at the same time


Hello,
Connect the computer to the TV
1. Through an S-Video cable or
2. A VGA cable,
depending on the input option of you TV, and the output options of your computer.
Then from Graphic properties, extend your desktop to a TV if S-Video, or to a second monitor if VGA cable. For older TVs resolution on computer screen may have to be set to 800x600.
Hope it helps.

I try and hook my toshiba pc to a tv or projector


Lots of people are doing this and part depends on what your home theatre has to offer in the way of connections.

For sound most use the LINE OUT on a computer or laptop and connect that to a suitable input on the receiver using a 3.5mm to stereo phono lead.

If you are lucky enough to have an OPTICAL sound out on your computer and one on the home system that would be a better option.

For the video side again it depends on what your computer has to offer

If it has DVI and your TV or home system has DMI then that is the very best option. Remember to lower the resolution on the computer first and to check and of your graphics card options for dual display. A DVI to HDMI lead is needed for that

NVIDIA graphics cards seem to work best in this area.

If you have a VGA connector on your TV that is another great option and you would only need a VGA lead.

Some cards and laptops have S-VIDEO out. Lots of TV's and home systems have these and the display is quite reasonable. If using S-video connections use a GOOD quality cable.

Some people can only obtain a black and white picture so check your graphics card did not come with any special adaptor.

Another method is composite video Even that is not always 100%

Some laptops need a special S-video adaptor which is just a short little cable to properly enable the S-video and convert S-video to composite. That is probably the worst way to do it.

Using a VGA to component lead is also an option but results vary wildly from no picture to quite good. A lot depends on the quality of the lead once again.

I use the optical sound and DMI lead to power a 50" Sony with great sound and picture

Connecting my laptop to my tv via hdmi


The first step is to determine whether the computer, the HDMI cable or the TV is the faulty link in the chain. I know it's a tremendous hassle to try a different TV, different computer, etc. But it will at least narrow the problem down to one component. My guess is that it's something in the computer that needs reconfiguring; that would be the most likely scenario, assuming you have a new HDMI cable.

OK, I'm making a few assumptions here

You say you got a Megadrive but it sounds like your from the states
It sounds to me like you are running a Pal system on a NTSC TV or a NTSC system on a PAL TV.

It also sounds like you may of used compersite scart lead or Phono lead.

Make sure your TV can cope with RGB
Because the only way to get a good picture is to use a RGB scart lead.
www.retro-cache.com do these leads for the megadrive(Genesis) 1 and 2

Cable Required to conect to TV


Your graphic card has two digital TV outputs, so all you need to do is to purchase a DVI cable and connect your PC to your TV (unless your PC is close enough to 'borrow' the cable from your PC, and you're only doing this on a one-time basis. If your TV doesn't have DVI input, you can purchase a DVI > VGA adapter; but most TV's today have DVI input. The next step is to output your sound to your surround sound system, or your TV will be silent. If you don't have any sound output slots left to plug into, you can purchase a 'Y' - adapter for your speaker port, or else if your PC has a second speaker jack on the front, you could just use that since you're only going to watch temporarily anyway.

I've run a cable from my PC to my TV, and used a 'Y' - adapter on my speaker output, leading to my surround sound amplifier, but since it draws my available wattage to my computer speakers on my computer down quite a bit, I simply unplug the cable leading to the surround sound amplifier when I'm not using it.

Hope this will FixYa.
