Hi Shifty,

Just to clarify, are you sure you mean play the Philips system sound through the PC (e.g. play records/CDs out of PC speakers/phones)? Or do you mean play PC sound through the Philips system (e.g. play MP3s out of Home Theater Speakers)?

Also, it would help if you could fill out your System Specs, please!

Cheers,

Walker

What would be most help for us to help you is more info on your systems. If we know either the Brand and Model of your computer or the Brand and model of your motherboard we can get some idea of the capabilities of your system.

Most important would be what you are using for a sound card and video card.

Also, what did you plug the HDMI cable into on the computer?

Do you know if you plugged it into your video card?
The HDMI plug would be right next to the plugs for your monitor.

Hi Shifty,

Please read this post on how to look up your system information. We need your graphics card at least.
