Using an HDTV as the PC monitor via HDMI

I just bought a Gateway GT5676 desktop and connected it to my Hitachi HDTV by HDMI. I have the video portion working, but I can't get the the audio to go through the TV speakers. Shouldn't the HDMI connection carry both the audio and video signals? If yes, how do I change the settings so that I don't need exterior speakers connected?

HDMI carried audio as well as video... Make sure it doesn't have an AV audio coming into the same AV channel

I cant run my gateway GT5676 pc in normal mode with Samsung TV / Monitor


If I'm understand you correctly you said you have the HDMI Cable and the VGA Cable comming from the Computer to the TV. You should only have one cable. Either use the HDMI from the computer to the HDMI to the TV or use the VGA from the Computer to the VGA on the TV. Once you have the cable connect select your input on the TV. If you have the VGA Cable connected your input to select on the tv will probably be PC or Computer. If you use the HDMI Cable your input to select on the TV will be HDMI.

One you connect the cables and select the input try rebooting the computer and the video might show up automatically on the tv. If not you will have to hit the FN (Function key) + the correct (F1 thru F12) key that corresponds to the external display. The correct key will probably have CRT/LCD on it or it might have the icon of a display. Press and Hold the FN key then hit the correct key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the display. The display will toggle on 3 setups (Computer only, TV only, both the TV and Computer).

Now as for not being able to boot up normally that's another issue.

What is the second hdmi port surrounded in orange on the back of my gateway dx4320-17 do? it doesnt work when connected to my monitor so is it an hdmi input? and would i be able to connect my ps3 to it and...


I presume by second HDMI that you've got an additional Video Card in one of the expension slots (Item 10 at the link below) with another HDMI output

http://support.gateway.com/s/desktop/2010/gateway/dx/dx4840/DX4840rv.shtml

The HDMI surrounded by orange is an ouput but if you've got and additional Video Card then this build in HDMI would normally be deactivated.

Sometimes the problem relates to the screen resolution you've got your computer set to as this needs to match your Monitors HDMI Input i.e.1280x720 or 1920x1080 as detailed at the link below.

I can't get a signal from my desktop to my hdtv when I use the hdmi port. The desktop is a gateway GT5676


First, make sure the computer port is working in the computer by going to the device management ICON in control panel.

Once you check that, make sure you have set up your preferences in the TV to allow "INPUT" from the HDMI port. If you have more than one HDMI ports make sure you have the correct number listed. This is a common error. It would be the same if you are running a DVR with an HDMI cable, you need to set up the TV. Normally you hit the "INPUT" button on the remote control and a list pops up. Scroll over with the arrows to the correct HDMI port. You will likely need to do this again to get back to the cable input once you are finished with the computer connection.

Need hdmi video card for gateway 510x i have one pci slot open No APG slot I want to us my 42'' hdtv as monitor. Also, looks like the gatewat slots on on the wrong side. Can I flip the card over?


I'm guessing you have a PCI-Express slot in your computer. In that case you can buy almost any PCI-Express video card these days and have it output to your HDTV.

Newegg's list of HDCP-capable video cards

What you're really looking for isn't a "HDMI" capable video card really, since all video card with some sort of digital connection, DVI, DisplayPort, can all be converted to HDMI using a converter even if you doesn't have a HDMI connector built in.

What you need is a card that is HDCP-compatible, which is the encoding/encryption for HD content output. Almost all new video cards now have it. So you shouldn't have a problem.

As far as inserting the card... they're often placed differently depending on chasis and motherboard, but you shouldn't have any issues with that either.

PC to TV can't seem to get to work.


okay buddy its esay just give me a good rate!

u select:
1. S-Video - This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA - If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI - Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box - This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.

My visonteck 1300 graphics card box states that it can be interfaced with my hdtv via dvi cord, where do i find a cord for it? what is it DVI to USB or DVI to PCmoniter cord?


Depending on the connections on your HDTV you'll have a few different options.

DVI on HDTV - Using a simple DVI to DVI cable will work. (DVI is the larger port on your video card - generally white in color)

VGA on HDTV - Use a standard VGA monitor cable to connect them. (VGA is the Blue 15pin connector on the video card)

HDMI on HDTV - This is the case for most new HDTVs - You'll need a DVI to HDMI cable - your local electronic store will have these in the tv section.

If all else fails you can use s-video (the circular connector) this is much lower quality though.
