    HDMi to DVi help please

    Trying to put my bluray player on my old TV in the bedroom, it only has a DVi connection in the back of the TV.
    I can get a picture using a cable but cant get sound.
    I have tried jacks but still no joy.

    Many thanks for your help

    Audio does not carry over DVI pal. However I have seen it happen I think there has to be some code written into the device?

    DVI cables dont take sound, if your blu ray can output from two sources at once we might be able to sort it though :thumbsup:

    Does the tv have a headphone socket put not for output, one for input, should be clsoe to the DVI I would pressume?

    yes, very similar although I have tried to use the red/white jacks

    What would probably save a bit time would be if I can ask for the TV's model please?

    if it has DVI input then quite often the sound input is a small headphone jack marked as "pc sound"

    Can't find your exact model.
    Is there a manual here that shows similar connections to yours?

    Click on televisions and scroll through the models.

    I'm off out now, will check back later. :thumbsup:

    I have a satellite box that is DVI-HDMI & that cable carries HD pictures & sound. Not an answer to your original question sorry, but shows that DVI-HDMI cables are capable of carrying both.

    I know yours is the other way around, but shouldnt it be the same principle ?

    There is PC input for sound on the 26LZ5RV model ... If this is yours you would need a 2 RCA to 3.5 or 2 RCA to 2.5mm jack depending on input size on TV if this is same model as yours as the model number you gave before was a little sketchy

    dvi is an external input other things in tv are internal

    Have just checked the model number and it was completely wrong!!
    ( it is the model 26LZ5RV) and I have found the PC input, looks smaller than a normal 3.5 jack so I assume it needs the 2.5. Mnay thanks to all, will give it a go.

    Managed to get the sound workung by using my leads from my Soany camcorder, the right speaker buzzes but works fine if I adjust the balance.
    Thanks everyone, rep left.
