    i originally had the hdmi cable plugged into an input source which had no audio outlet and the picture was perfect but no sound, so i had to get an audio cable. i then plugged both these cables into another input and the sound came but the picture is fuzzy. if i plug back into the other input, picture is perfect, but no sound, and i cant use different input sources for sound and picture.

Sounds like bad Earths to me... Is it better if it is OFF, the AC/DC power supply? If so then yes, bad earthing between units and earth.

    Yup well that confirm it then you are getting phasing earth imbalance.. IE: Small voltage variations between earth connections... Analogue and Digital have different "Earth" potentials. Which is why we have HDMI and it is all "in" there.. so to speak. You are going to have to try to connect the ALL the Earths all together perhaps with a separate wire joining them all up, The Negatives and Earths between the Leads. I mean. try that

I hooked up my laptop C300 to my tv. I get picture but, no sound. Do I need a sound card? If so, which one?


It all depends on how you connected to the TV. There are 3 common ways, using HDMI, DVI or a VGA cable. Of the 3, only HDMI transmits sound from the computer to the TV. If you are using DVI or VGA, you will need to connect a cable from the audio out (headphone) jack on the computer to audio in on the TV. If you are actually using a HDMI cable, it is probably a setting somewhere.

Hi
It may just be possible that DVI signal does not convert to HDMI signal. So in theory this may not be possilbe for you to get a result with your present attempt. May i suggest connecting to the DVI port of the TV. i.e Mini Display to DVI.

Is there a way to hook up a HDMI connector to my WS-48413


Yes, there are several ways to hook up your HDMI to your TV but first, we need to understand that HDMI carries both audio and video signals though a single cable in digital form.

I am assuming you want to connect a device such as a digital cable box, Blu Ray or HD DVD player with an HDMI output to your TV. Since your TV has both digital (DVI) and analog (S-Video, component, etc) inputs, my suggestion would be to get and HDMI to DVI adapter (about $20 at buy.com) for your video and for your audio, use any RCA audio cable (I use the one from the Dollar Store). This would give you the best video resolution from your source device.

My next suggested solution would be to get an HDMI to component video + audio cable (< $10 at eBay for a 6' length) for a single-cable fix. Again component video carries analog signals so the DVI could be a better viewing experience but because the cost of the cables are minimal, I would try both solutions to see which fix would give you the better picture.

Note that since the audio is being run though RCA connectors in both instances, the digital Dolby, 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound tracks in high definition sources will not be reproduced if you connect your TV's audio-out to your audio receiver. To get the best audio, I would connect the HDMI device's digital out (optical, coaxial, etc) directly to the receiver.

Hope that helps. Have fun!

I have connected my macbook to my tv using mini


Later MacBook (Pro) use a mini-DVI connector that does not pass analog needed for composite or S-video. Was yours ever working? And most DVI connectors do not pass sound as seen by your cabling. You cannot detect display through RCA. You just set it in Sys Prefs :: Displays, try some other settings, although your seem right.
I have a white early-2009 MacBook and mini-DVI to HDMI adapter (monoprice <$10) and HDMI cable and have not connected the TOS-link for sound, yet--just slideshows at 1920x1080. You will get a much better picture digitally. -Ken

Hdmi and audio


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.

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable


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.
