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

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 wh…en it is connected with the AV cable that was provided, but it will not be in HD
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 to 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.
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.

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 upconvert 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.
no the HDMI cable provides for both audio and HD video
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.
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 equ…ipment. It might be worth mentioning that DVI, the digital computer display interface that is gaining popularity is compatible with HDMI other than the fact that DVI does not carry audio. HDMI to DVI cables are available to connect computers to television displays. Therefore, any HDMI cable that has a DVI connector at one end or the other will not carry audio.
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 fr…om 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£1…0 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. When the sync is on it will switch the tv over to the ps3 when the ps3 is turned on

In Home Theater
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.
I'm having a little trouble with my HDMI settings. No matter howmany cables I use or what I try to change, the TV simply refuses toplay the sound. I know it can play sound thr…ough the HDMI set up soit's not a matter of the audio being broken (I hope). I had thesame issue with an ouya (that has a sort of sound test thing, whichwas the sound I used to find out if the TV could actually playsound through the HDMI port or not) and an xbox 360 and it's justdriving me mad. I don't know just what my TV is but apparently it'sa Murphy, it's most likely a 22-24 inch and it only has one HDMIport. Any ideas as to how I can fix this?
