Testimonial: "I have a total of 4 HDMI on my TV and I tried all of them. I also have a smaller tv which I use for my ps4 and it works perfectly fine, so at least I know it's not the cable, but thanks anyways :)"

SOURCE: No sound from digital cable thru AVR3200 after adding HDTV - DVD plays fine

you need a digital coax cable and then connect it to 6.1 also the digital cable type is not a coomon type so check that also

Hello,
There are two things that I can suggest.
1-Test your optical cables to make sure they a good on a known working source because they are very fragile and break very easily.
2-Try to eliminate the use of optical output from tv to receiver. There may be a problem from the HDMI to optical conversion at the tv. Instead, try running the audio directly from the source to the receiver, and let the tv deal with video input only.
Hope this helps,
Good Luck.

Before you go to any more trouble troubleshooting potential hardware and/or connection issues, look at this page of reviews on Dell's site, taking special care to read 'Review 8' by an owner named 'Milwsport'.

My blu ray 3d dvd player will not show picture on blu ray discs only sound but will play regular dvds correctly


The video for blu ray disks come out of the HDMI port and that has to be connected to the TV for video. If it is connected, make sure the TV is switched to the correct HDMI port on the TV (assuming you have a flat screen HDTV).

How do i get a movie to play from computer to the tv with hdmi


If your TV has an HDMI input - connect up the computer to the TV with an HDMI cable.
Select HDMI on the TV inputs.
Play the DVD on the computer, should appear on TV is Input is set. Sound may be a fiddle ~ check you PC sound settings if there is none.
The computer will usually show a blank screen when the HDMI is going elsewhere,
Good luck

I am connecting Yamaha DVD player to the Vizio M420 NV via HDMI. i have a picture but no sound. how do I gain audio when using HDMI?


HDMI has both Audio and Video (High Definition Multimedia Interface) and should carry both. However, I had this problem with a client just the other day and it turned out that the firmware on his TV needed to be up[graded. Different model TV, but I believe you may need to download the latest software/firmware update via your PC and put it on a flash drive and then flash the firmware on your TV to get it to work. Sorry I don't have the specifics; I was stumped and the Time-Warner guy ended up doing it. I hope this at least sends you in the right direction.

Hi,

I have few options for you to get the video back on HDMI:
1. Try out changing the video resolution on HDMI set up (select 480p..1080p).
2. Play NTSC disc (to get the 60Hz out from Player). If your are in US.
3. Select the TV system as AUTO/NTSC to get the 60Hz out only on HDMI.
4. if the Deep Color option is available in HDMI set up menu..set it to OFF.

Let me know if you tried all these and still no output.

I want to hook my vizio tv up to my computer what cords are needed?


Likely standard VGA ... unless you have an HD card in your computer ... I got one for mine in order to play blu ray after I bought a blu ray drive for my computer. In that case I needed an HDMI cable. HDMI passes both the video and the audio, otherwise you need to connect also a stereo audio cable between your sound card output and the tv input, close to the computer VGA connection.

So:

Will a hdmi cable work for sound and video to view whats on my laptop on my tv i have a dell m1530 and my tv is a sony vizio


As long as you ave a true hdmi output on your computer it will work for sound and video. If you are adapting to the hdmi from dvi or anything other than hdmi it will not broadcast sound. It will however give you an hd picture.

Vizio vx42l hdtv back light


If backlight went out then sound should still work. Are there any indicator lights to show power is coming on anymore? Try unplugging for 30 seconds, hit power button a few times, then plug back in and try to turn on. This drains any capacitors of power to attempt to reset (basically clearing the TV's throat).

Can also try something on a different input. If current input is composite, S-video, or component, try using DVI or HDMI connection as this uses a different board in the TV. If that fixes it, then at least you can try to replace one board instead of entire tv. :)

No play back from HDTV to threater system


Do you have set-top-box or antenna-cable directly to TV?
You have connected TV with received via HDMI, but that won't work in this direction - TV has HDMI INput only, not output.
You can use HDMI to connect HDMI-out on DVD player for example to HDMI-in on receiver and HDMI-out of receiver to HDMI-in on TV.
But to get sound from TV to the receiver, use spdif optical or coax cable if TV supports that - this way you will get surround sound.
But also your connection via analog white/red RCA plugs should work, but only for stereo sound.
