    DVI to HDMI problem
    I want to set up my laptop to an LCTV to watch movies on it. I bought an DVI to HDMI(which I needs). I get perfect video, but I dont get audio...

    Dose pluging in your computer to long into a Tv harm your video card?

    Everyone hates cliffhanger endings because..

    DVI does not support audio feeds. HDMI does, but not DVI. That's the problem.
    You need to have a cable from your line out, into line in on your TV or amp.

    DVI is video only. You need to run another cable from your computer's headphone jack/line out to your TV or stereo. Your TV should have a set of Stereo RCA ports to accompany one of your HDMI inputs because HDMI doesn't always have sound included.

    Google "Stereo RCA to 1/8th in. headphone jack" for a cable with the type of connections you need.
    I'm not a Mac. I'm not a PC. I'm a person.
