PC connected to TV........no sound on TV.

Hi folks,

This is the first attempt to watch a movie playing on PC. I connected the PC to the TV via an HMDI cable. I have no sound coming out from the TV's speakers. I would like some advice on this please.

Hello barbarossa,

You have to go into the sound control panel and make hdmi the default sound device, and make sure you have all graphics card drivers installed

What do you mean? Your graphics card doesn't have HDMI ports but your tv does? Or do you mean the graphics card isn't outputting a signal?

You can get an HDMI to DVI adapter, but then the sound wouldn't be able to travel down the line, you'd have to connect through the audio-in/out green port.

That or a new graphics card that does support it

Sorry, I should have checked your system specs. You'll need an hdmi port or an adapter, as I've mentioned
