Samsung LN-T4671F HDMI PC hookup and Audio Problems

I am hooking my Dell PC up to my Samsung using a HDMI/DVI cable and cable coming from the sound card to two RCA phono cables connecting to the RCA ports on the TV for HDMI1. The picture is great but I get no sound. I know the sound card and cables work because I can connect them to my stereo and that works fine. Any suggestions? As a matter of fact just about all the RCA phono jacks on the TV do not work.

    Hi,

    The sound card on my PC has an 1/8" mini-plug output jack. I have a stereo mini-plug cord that is coupled to two RCA phono cords that go to the TV RCA phono plugs for the HDMI1 jack that the video card is plugged to. I am not using my CD/DVD player but Windows Media to play a video file with sound. Changing the CD/DVD player to not play digital dows not effect what I am playing. The same setup plays fine going to the stereo system but I want to be able to play videos and hear the sound from the TV which has a fantastic sound system. Can you give me any other suggestions?

    I have placed a service call with Samsung and hope to get a technician out this week. If anyone else has any ideas please let me know. Apparently the Samsung user guide has false information on their PC setup instructions.

Hi,

Pls bear with me, have you tried not using the HDMI/DVI cable but simple straight connection PC > Standard 15 pin VGA cable and audio cable that has "stereo mini-plug" on both ends to the PC IN of the Samsung?

You may have to connect it to the audio jack next to the VGA port of PC input as can be seen from this pic

http://review.zdnet.com/sc/32514512-2-300-DT1.gif

The PC input ports are at the top of the pic midway.

I had the same problem before and this fixed it

Hope this helps

    Since HDMI carries audio and video on one cable, most TVs default to
    using the HDMI inputs for the audio for that video feed. Most TVs have
    some sort of setting in the setup menu where you can tell it to use
    audio from a different input when you choose that HDMI input for the
    video.

    Chances are the TV thinks the audio is supposed to come from
    the HDMI cable, because that is the norm. I think you need to program
    the TV to use a different audio source when getting from from that
    particular HDMI input.

You need to enable RCA output on your PC first.

    For Windows XP, to change the audio output
    to analog audio for the headphone jack or RCA connectors,
    right click on "My Computer" and select "Properties".
    Select the "Hardware" tab and then the "Device
    Manager" button. Locate the "DVD/CD-ROM Drives"
    heading and click on the "+" sign. Right click
    on the selected drive. Select "Properties",
    then the "Properties" tab. At the bottom of
    the window, in the section titled "Digital CD Playback",
    uncheck the option to enable digital audio, and select
    the "OK" button. To enable digital audio,
    use the same path and check the box to enable.

Depending on the version of HDMI standard, it may not transfer audio. Add a dedicated audio cable from the video game to TV. there should be an audio jack next to the HDMI.

When using this type of adapter you only feed video into the TV/monitor
you have to use a separate set of RCA audio wires to feed the audio into your tv.

Cant get audio from my hdmi rca sockets


The problem is that you are trying to use too many connections at once and it is confusing the system. HDMI connection covers both sound, and video. So, no other connection is needed. Try using only HDMI. If that does not work. Use DVI for video and RCA for sound. Also you may need to change the settings in your PC so that it recognises that it is connected to HDMI, or whichever connection you decide to use.

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.
