Why wont an HDMI cable play audio on a tv?
If the HDMI source is setup to output multi-channel audio and the TV is stereo then no audio will be heard. Simply set the source to output 2-channel PCM over its HDMI connection

Answer . Yes, depending on what you are planning on connecting to your television. If the device you are connecting has an HDMI output, HDMI is the only connection you will need. HDMI carries high definition audio and video.
Answer . Depends on the receiver. Some models have just a pass thru feature and connot decode the audio portion of the HDMI signal, and therefore will need a digital audio cable to get sound.. Some receivers can decode the audio, so you will need to consult your manual to see what they say. If …you need a audio cable it will tell you. (MORE)
\nNo. Standard audio video cable connections work as well if not better, which is important given that most receivers and TVs have limited HDMI ports, which are usually maxed out by DVD, TV and PVRs
You need an HDTV for it to work and the TV has to have an HDMI connection. Then you need to turn your HDTV to the location for the HDMI that was connected
In order for the PS3 to work best on a HDTV you need to have or purchase either an HDMI or a component AV cable and connect the PS3 to the HDTV. The PS3 will play on a HDTV when it is connected with the AV cable that was provided, but it will not be in HD
In theory if your recording device has an HDMI input port, then it could because High Definition Media Interconect (HDMI) is a high speed digital link that carries both audio and video data.. In practice, as far as I know, no TiVo, DVD, or BluRay recorder has an HDMI input. In every case the HDMI p…ort is for output only. The very few recording devices that have an HDMI input impose restrictions that limit the usefulness of the connection. The consortium that created and licenses HDMI also imposes High Definition Content Protection (HDCP) on all HDMI devices. Video players, Cable TV, and Satellite TV Boxes boxes that output over HDMI all respect content protection requests from the source media by activating HDCP on the HDMI output. When HDCP is active, some devices refuse to record, some record only internally and only for playback, and some degrade HD video to SD. It has been asserted that some HDMI repeaters do not properly manage HDCP and have the effect of removing it. Since the tone of the question implies a quest for simpler cabling, it should be noted that a repeater adds complexity rather than reducing it. (MORE)
I take it you are using your laptop to watch DVD etc on your HD TV. I had the same problem where the sound was coming out my laptop. I solved this by going in to the sound options on my computer (which you can access in your control panel) then set your sound default as HDMI. This should solve the p…roblem, just remember to set the default back to the laptops speakers when you are finished using it on your TV. I hope that helps. CWF (MORE)
\nThere are several different specifications for HDMI and more will follow in the future. Each of the specifications provide for certain data rates and the higher the data rate, the higher the resolution can be. HDMI cables are also rated for different data rates. However, it is not quite as simp…le as picking a cable to match the data rate.\n. \nCables will attenuate the signals (make them weaker) over a distance. The longer the cable, the more the signal is attenuated. For a long cable, expect the overall diameter to be greater than a short cable as this will help to reduce the attenuation. If the signal attenuation is too great, the image will not be received.\n. \nFor short runs, up to 6 feet or 2 meters, the attenuation is unlikely to be enough to cause a problem, whatever the image resolution might be. The final test is to plug in the cable. If it works, it's good enough. If it doesn't, it's not good enough.\n. \nIt is worth mentioning that both the line driver in the video source and the line receiver at the input play an important part in the signal transmission. A good receiver will cope with a longer cable run than a poor one.\n. \nTo summarize, try the cable. If it displays a signal, then do no more - the cable is good enough. (MORE)
You are trying to connect your gaming chair x rocker to your tv and your PS3 the PS3 and tv connect using HDMI i dont have any audio outputs for av cables on the tv just imputs can anyone advise?
What you have to do is connect the colored cables that come with the ps3 on the back of it then go to ps3 setting and in sounds there should be saying something about multiple connections click it and then press on and it should start working
You can with some laptops. Check to see if there is a HDMI input in your laptop.
With all domestic equipment on sale now, HDMI cables are needed to watch HD content from external receivers or Bluray players. Although early HD televisions had HD analog component inputs, they won't be found on new equipment. HDMI supports a copy protection system known as HDCP. This prevents the… HD signal being intercepted and copied to other media. Analog component signals don't have this protection and the industry has almost universally adopted HDMI as the single HD television interface. (MORE)
Computers are increasingly using digital video instead of VGA. Many computers now have a DVI connector in addition to \nthe standard VGA connector. DVI carries digital video and happens to be the same signal format as used in HDMI cables. Using a DVI to HDMI cable allows most modern televisions t…o display the computer screen.\n. \nThere is one large difference between DVI and HDMI in that DVI connectors do not carry audio. If the computer has a DVI connector, there is definitely no audio carried. If the laptop has an HDMI connector, it may be the case that it still carries no audio. Some computers use HDMI as the video connector to save space but retain the DVI signal format, missing the audio signal completely.\n. \nIf this is the case, all is not lost. Most televisions that have an HDMI input also have an analog audio input connector linked to the same input. The setup menu normally allows a selection of digital audio (using the HDMI cable) or analog (using the analog connectors). If there is more than one HDMI input the analog option may be on just one connector.\n. \nIf this does not solve the sound problem, there might be a problem with the audio output on the computer itself. A search through the control panel help to eliminate the problem. (MORE)
No.. HDMI cables will need an HDMI input and only HD capable TVs will have them.
Because HDMI carries digital data, any cable will carry the data as well as any other. The digital interface means that the data is recovered by the receiver with no loss whatsoever. If a cable is so poor that it won't carry the data well enough for the receiver to recover it, there will be no pict…ure at all. Any HDMI tested and approved cable will carry data flawlessly. All cables on sale should be made and tested to thos standards. Cheaper HDMI cables are likely to be light weight with lower quality connectors. They may eventually fail if they are being handled and unplugged continually but other than that, expensive cables have no benefit over the very cheapest of HDMI cable. (MORE)

HDMI and DVI are compatible connectors for video signals. There are two small but important differences. First, DVI does not carry audio whereas HDMI includes it as part of the interface. Second, and most important, is that HDMI supports HDCP, an encoding system to prevent signals being copied. … To receive HDCP encoded signals, the display must be HDCP compliant (i.e. licensed to receive and decode the signals). DVI does not support HDCP and therefore a DVI monitor will see garbage rather than a good signal. For protection of the content, there are no licensed HDMI to DVI converters on the market. Furthermore, the few unlicensed converters are not guaranteed to operate. Indeed, the HDCP system provides for disabling HDCP receivers in the future if they are using unauthorized license keys. HDCP has been introduced in response to people pirating material. Sadly, it also prevents legitimate use of some content such as display on DVI monitors as this question demonstrates. (MORE)
You need a cable company HD converter box connected to your HDTV thru a HDMI or Component cables to get real high def. If you connect the cable from the cable company directly to your HDTV like you did with analog tv, you will not be getting HD.
Apple sells a connector cable to send video to another device but it only has a S-connector on the output end. Audio would have to come through the headphone jack, I think.
It would be in the group with most of the other audio/video connectors. It is a rather odd looking rectangle thing and clearly labeled.

There will come a time in the not too distant future when normal televisions will handle HD and SD only televisions will become very rare in stores. (MORE)
Is it possible to use HDMI cable for video and regular cables for audio at the same time when playing Blu-ray movies?
Yes it is. Just make sure your other inputs are in the same source on your reciever. I do this occassionally with my computer. Run the video through HDMI and audio through RCA's. You get way better sound through HDMI so I would try and just use the one cable so you dont have to get more then one cab…le. But if your doing something different it should work. (MORE)
Yes, believe it or not, you can use regular coax cable, s-video, etc to connect to your HD TV. Picture quality won't be so great but it will work. HDMI or component cables give the best PQ. There is one difference between HDMI and component that you may want to know about. Some DVD players will u…pconvert the PQ if they are playing a regular DVD to a near HD picture. If you are using a HDMI cable, you will see this on your TV. However component cables do not upconvert the signal. Not a huge thing and if I didn't mention this, you probably wouldn't notice. (MORE)
The 3 COMPONENT cables are to be used if you don't have the HDMI connector.
No, you don't need a HDMI cable for your PS3. this feature is optional. What it does is it increases the resolution of your PS3 meaning you get better graphics. The HDMI cable allows the the HDTV and the PS3 to sync and also provides a single plug hookup with the PS3. The higher resolution can al…so be achieved with the purchase of a Component AV cable for the PS3 from stores like target.com for HDTVs that do not have a HDMI connection. Only the supplied PS3 cable with only 3 RCA type plugs would have decreased resolution on a HDTV, but for non HDTVs it's the only connection with the PS3 that's I know of that's possible. see accessories for the PS3 in the related link (MORE)
No. Only HDTVs have the HDMI cable inputs. But PlayStation 3 can be used as a Blu-Ray player since they can play Blu-Ray discs
HDMI is a type of video interface developed to carry high definition video signals. Additionally, HDMI will support standard definition video and carries audio as part of the signal. The cable provides a convenient method of carrying video, audio and control signals between devices without the need …to use multiple wires. HDMI is also compatible with DVI, a video display interface for computer displays. Unlike HDMI, DVI does not handle audio so the compatibility is limited to video only. HDMI supports an encoding system known as HDCP. The encoding is designed to prevent unauthorized copying of video content and increasingly commercial content is using the protection system. (MORE)
Your ps3 wont play with regular rca cables but will play with the HDMI cable how can you get it to work with the rca cables?
Why would you want to when the RCA cable is only for 480i picture and the HDMI is for HDTV. If your TV can work with the HDMI cables then it is a HDTV and the will not provide the same results with an RCA connection. Anyway the HDMI cable is capable of sync and can adjust the setting and automatical…ly switch your TV to the PS3 when you turn on the PS3 slim model (earlier models do not have this feature). You need to go to the PS3 settings and the TV settings to correctly reflect the 480i signal and to manually turn your TV to the PS3 input location every time you now want to use it with the RCA connection. You will also have to manually switch it back when you want to watch TV instead of playing the PS3. The PS3 does have the ability to have the video reset to the lowest level which will allow the RCA cables to work again. This is done by holding down the power button for two beeps while the system is turned off. That is supposed to reset the video to the lowest level according to instructions (MORE)
DVI and HDMI are compatible interfaces for video (DVI does not carry audio so they are not fully compatible). The signals carry data that identifies the image format and size so the display can properly re-size the image to fit the screen. In this instance, it appears that the image size is not bei…ng interpreted correctly and the display is not sizing the image to fit. This is fairly common in the case of computer outputs which have many different resolutions that are not "broadcast" formats. As the source is using a DVI connector, it is likely that it is a computer rather than a games console or DVD player. If that is the case, try adjusting the resolution of the display output in the control panel of the computer. Some experimentation should help to find the right resolution to fit the display resolution. (MORE)
HDMI is a connector standard designed fo rboth HD and SD video. It will carry both audio and video signals within the cable so it provides a single cable interface between equipment.

How can you connect your ps3 to your samsung home theater and to your tv using HDMI cables and will my tv handle HDMI cables if my tv is 720p?
If your HDTV does not have a HDMI input you need either a component or S video cable also designed for the PS3 and purchased from a store like Target or Target.com. That cable has a connection for the PS3 on one side and a connection for your HDTV input on the other side and could cost $25. Some hom…e theater systems even include a blue ray disc player and the PS3 can be connected to those and the whole HDMI system will allow everything to work. MY Samsung HDTV is just an older 26 inch 720 P model and used only to watch during meals. It does have many input connections except they are for component, S video, and the regular A/V that came with the PS3 for 480i standard video. I suspect your HDTV does not have HDMI and you will need to purchase a special cable, but can use the cable that came with the PS3 until you do. Amazon.com has them for under $20 see related link . If you Home theater has the five color coded RCA plug inputs for a Component cable on the back you can try to connect the PS3 to it. (MORE)
You look at the back of a HDTV or HD ready TV to determine what input plugs exist. You can also use the owners manual. Normally an HD ready TV is an older model that does not have an HD turner for the HD Television broadcasts and does mot has HDMI inputs and instead has the 5 RCA Plug component conn…ection for 720P HD input or an S-Video connection input or even both. They sell 5 RCA style plug Component to HDMI connection cable for use with the PS3 and that cable can be used for any HDMI to component connection. (MORE)
Every modern LCD or plasma television made in the last 5 years has HDMI. The first televisions to have HDMI were introduced in 2003.
If your TV has an HDMI input and your computer has an HDMI output, you can connect them with an HDMI cable. TV's don't have HDMI outputs, only inputs. The output could come from a gaming machine or a cable or satellite receiver. These could be connected to the computer's monitor with HDMI.

Will you get 5.1 audio if you connect a sony DVD player to a 46 inch plasma tv with an HDMI cable and or coaxial cable?
No, you will need a surround sound receiver or amplifier with 5 speakers and a subwoofer to hear surround sound.
HDMI cables contain both the video and the audio signal, so you just plug it in and it should work.
You can get some good cables but you can also pay a lot more money that you need to for a HDMI cable. Shopkeeprs will try to sell you a Â£50 cable when you only need a Â£10 one, just because they get a large cut, more than by selling the TV itself!
Because you need to turn your HDTV to the HDMI that was the one the PS3 was plugged into much like you switch a TV so it will pick up a cable box or DVD player signal instead of the TV antenna Then you can see the PS3 on your HDTV and set the Sync controls for your HDMI.

If your PC has an HDMI port and the connector is the same as that used on a PS3, then it should work correctly.
Perhaps it's getting used too roughly or it has gotten torn or dust has gotten into it.
There has been a trend in recent years for computers to use digital video outputs such as DVI. As laptops become smaller, DVI connectors have been replaced by HDMI connectors which are essentially a compatible interface. The difference is that DVI has no support for sound whereas HDMI carries sound …as well as video. Some laptops have had an HDMI connector fitted but configured as a DVI port, namely to carry video without audio. If this is the case, there will be no sound received by the television. There is another possibility, related to the DVI / HDMI compatibility issue. A PC with a DVI port can make use of a DVI to HDMI cable to connect to an HD television. As DVI has no sound, many televisions feature a 3.5mm jack socket that can be used for sound from the PC. If the 3.5mm jack connector is enabled, the audio on the HDMI input will not be used. A check of the video or audio input setup on the television may well allow the analog 3.5mm jack to be turned on and off. Finally, it is worth checking the PC configuration to make sure the audio is actually routed to the HDMI port. For the same reasons, many PCs will allow the audio to be routed to an analog output instead of the HDMI to allow a DVI display and a separate audio input. (MORE)
