I'm just about to buy this: http://cgi.ebay.ie/HDMI-to-DVI-Cable-Gold-Plated-5M_W0QQitemZ250608934978QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Computing_CablesConnectors_RL?hash=item3a5974e042 to connect my PC to my large screen LCD TV.
Does anyone know, will this carry the sound from the PC as well or do I need a seperate connection for that?
Yes, it will carry audio and video
Are you 100% sure? I presumed it would work fine but was only asking as I found this: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1029603#EnablingHDMIAudio
Haven't connected the PC to the tele before so not 100% on the whole thing.
Thanks for your help.
I bought one of these off komplett, and no it did not carry sound unfortunately. What did work though that was with an older graphics card(hd2400 pro, so i don't know if sound over hdmi is even supported). Have a 4870 now, and still have the cable so if you want i can try it out this evening for you?
Yeah, if you could try that out for me I'd appreciate it, thanks . The solution on that other forum (from the link above) said you connect a normal HDMI cable to an adapter that goes in your DVI slot.....but that seems just the same as a DVI to HDMI cable, only with an extra middleman if you will?
There is no mention of audio in the description. I bought a hdmi cable a while back when i got a HD4670, but can't remember testing the other cable on it! I am sure i must have had a valid reason for getting the new cable!
Did you get a HDMI-DVI adaptor with the card?
I'll check when i get home, but it will probably be after 7-8 o clock.
Totally forgot to reply back! I tried it earlier, the dvi to hdmi cable doesnt transmit the sound! i also tried the hdmi to dvi connector + hdmi cable and that works fine.
Hope this helps
you need the ATI HDMI connector a normal one wont work.
google it tis fairly cheap.
There may be one in the box that the card came in. mine had one.
I would give you mine but do use it occasionally
Cheers lads. I just dug around the box with all my driver discs and odds and ends that came with the PC and hidden in there I found the ATI HDMI - DVI adapter. I'll just get a normal cable now and that'll be it sorted.
