No audio on vizio from source

Using the hdmi2 rca audio input from a laptop stereo headphone output, I cannot hear any sound. Is there a setting in the Vizio itself that adjusts the hdmi2 imput audio besides the main volume?

There should not be a special setting that you need. When hooking the analog audio to the HDMI 2 input, it should read automatically. Note: The HDMI Input is for HD Video and will only support 640x480 at 60Hz from a PC. Use the RGB
PC input for a greater selection of PC formats.

Is there a input for external audio speakers?


There's usually one audio input associated with each video input or source.

So - if you're on AV1 - then the audio will be taken from the AV1 / SCART socket. If you're on HDMI2 - then audio from HDMI2.

Quite often, either 'PC' or 'VGA' input (15 pin like a computer, or DVI) will have an audio input on a 3.5mm stereo jack (like a headphone plug) - this may help you.

I have an older home stereo system that i would like to connect to my vizio tv. I have a 3.5mm audio to rca plug. Coming out of the headphone jack on the tv, it plays no sound out of the system. Although...


I suspect what you're wanting to do is take the audio output from the TV and run it through your stereo system to leverage the large speakers. Correct?

I suggest using the RCA audio jacks (red and white pair) on the back of the TV. Most TV's still have these. Some are tied to a specific component, and some are general for all sound coming out of the TV. You connect this to the input RCA jacks on your stereo system.

The headphone jack on the TV could also work, but I suspect it may have a low level output. I don't understand how you say your MP3 player plays fine through the headphone jack, as that's an output, not an input. Unless there's some other jack?

NEED INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOOKING UP WIRELESS HEADPHONES FOR VIZIO TV


From the manual:

1. Plug the stereo audio cable into the headphone jack of your audio
source (e.g., stereo, TV, CD player, DVD, etc.). If your audio source
has two RCA output jacks instead of a headphone jack, use the
supplied Y cable to connect your headphones to the two (red and
white) RCA jacks.
2. Connect the other end of the stereo audio cable to the AUDIO IN
socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter.
3. Connect the AC/DC main power adapter to the DC IN power
supply socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter. Then,
connect the adapter to an electrical outlet.
Important: This power unit is intended to be correctly oriented in a
vertical or floor mount position.

I would like to connect my computer to my panasonic sa-ht800v unit and hear the sound thru the surround sound speakers


In general, your PC's sound card (and its controlling software) will determine what it can connect to.

Even the most basic PC would have stereo analog output via the typical green 1/8" connector or a headphone jack that easily adapts to RCA pair for analog audio connection. Any Line Level input EXCEPT PHONO would accept the PC's output. The output level would be controlled by the sound card software and settings.

The SA-HT800's single LINE Input would accept the Green stereo audio or speaker output from a standard PC, once adapted. Select VCR.



Find your PC's Sound Controls and enable the applicable input. make sure the volumes of both Inputs and Outputs are turned up.

Though not applicable to theGemini, more-advanced sound cards and audio hardware would have similar adaptable 5.1 or 7.1 (paired) analog outputs and / or digital audio outputs that conform to the s/pdif or Dolby Digital standards.

A digital-capable receiver would accept 44.1 kHz for normal CD or DTS sources. Some diddling with the output sampling frequency might allow digital multichannel audio to be decoded by the receiver.

How do I connect my laptop to my Marantz SR5002 receiver


Typically, your laptop would have a headphone output if you want to SEND audio to the receiver.

Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input. Get a cable like the one described here:


http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021804&p_id=665&seq=1&format=2


and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the source player volume up.

You may have to find the sound controls on the laptop to raise the volume high enough for the reciver to use.

that audio jack is input only it is stereo jack to connect from the comptuer to the tv when using the RGB input. most headphone jacks if they are there would be on the side of flat panel tvs. otherwise the audio output may be digital(optical) or normal rca (red and white) that you can hookup to the headphone system.

Connected laptop to tv, but sound only come from laptop. How can I make the sound come out from tv?


If your laptop has a HDMI output, and your TV has a HDMI input, then use a HDMI-to-HDMI cable, which carries both "audio" and "video" signals.

Otherwise, you need a cable from the "headphone" output from your PC into the "RCA" stereo-audio inputs into your TV.

Hooking laptop to onkyo sr604 through hdmi no sound through stero


hdmi is video only

you will need to use the rca/phono inputs for audio.

you will need a stereo mini jack to steroe rca/phono

use the i/p marked aux/cd/

make sure the volume on the onkyo is turned DOWN before connecting any new input source.

The output from most laptops is designed for headphones so you may need to adjust the volume on the laptop DOWN as well.

Perhaps start off with laptop at 30% and the amp DOWN then increase the amp until you can hear the laptop sound.

To get good quality audio from a laptop you would be beter off with a USB sound card.

hope this helps, thanks for using FixYa

if this is helping please vote.
