You've got to output the video to external hdmi.

Usually it's FN key plus F2 or F5 on a laptop.

Just look closely at the keys for something that looks like: {} / []

That's the hotkey for it. If that doesn't work poke around the display settings and you can manually output there.

Let me know if you get stuck or if the above works.

Unless you hook HDMI to HDMI, you won't carry sound across the HDMI cable. If you're using a VGA to HDMI converter, you'll get the picture but no sound.

I have a feeling the headset jack on the TV is an output rather than an input. Most TVs accept HDMI, RCA, or a digital audio input (either coaxial or optical). Unless you have a S/PDIF optical output from your laptop (and you obviously don't have an HDMI output), then your only other choice is likely to get a cable that splits a 1/8" headset type connector into two RCA plugs that you'll plug into an AUDIO IN input on your TV.

You should have your signal in to your Comcast, then HDMI out to Sat in on your receiver. I haven't looked but I'm guessing you have multiple HDMI in on your receiver, but remember, you only have one HDMI out from receiver which would go to tv. What happens if you hook HDMI directly friom Comcast out to HDTV in.If you still have a delay there must be some sort of adjustment on your tv. When you plug into tv, Is it a default screen you can't change or, can you check say video 1, etc.? How many HDMI inputs do you have on your tv? Let me know through "add a comment"

You can check your dvd player for a coaxial or an optical sound output, then you can plug it directly to your receiver. Those two are the best options after HDMI. Another option is A/V RCA type cable, you´ll need 3 stereo A/V wires, in order to connect the 6 channels. Remember to uncheck the HDMI sound output option on the DVD menu.

NO SOUND WHEN USING HDMI FROM PC TO HDTV (RUNNING VISTA)


When using an HDMI to DVI cable their is no audio that comes through that cable. Even if you use HDMI to HDMI most computers only have video output from HDMI. You will have to use a seperate audio cable for you to be able to get the sound to work. Depending on the output you have on your laptop you may have to resort to hooking up a pair of speakers to the headphone jack.

Hope this helps.

How to hook up a hp pavilion laptop to a hdtv


if it worked fine at some point then it should work fine now... i use hdmi to hdmi from my laptop to tv all the time dvi would only cause quality loss.

the first thing i would try would be to change your resolution on your laptop to a couple different settings. a lot of times, if its not set to one thats compatible with your tv, you won't see anything.

if that doesn't work, go to personalization and open the tab that says "connect an external display" and toy around with it. but yeah it doesn't sound like you have any hardware problems there.

hope this helps

Yes you can. It will not be like a HDMI cable but it will be better than the RCA. Your image will be in your HDTV (1920 × 1080). But you will have to buy a HDMI cable and and HDMI-DVI adaptor. You will not have sound so you will have to connect either your RCA or if you have a Digital Optical Audio sounds better.

If you have any questions just ask.


Good luck!

You need a audio cable for sound. HDMI cable is only for picture. I use the comp 1 plugs myself, better picture. I found with my TV that the HDMI cable is only good if you have a digital box for it. You can also use the plug to hook your computer to off your graphics card and watch downloaded movies on.
