ATI Radeon HD 3200 Audio On Tv?
May 11, 2009, 3:32 AM
I have an Integrated Radeon HD 3200.
It has a DVI port, and a VGA port.
I'm using a DVI->HDMI Cable and hooking it up to my Samsung HDTV.
I get picture but I do not get sound.
Even if I hook up the speaker wires to the T.V there is no sound, unless I use the VGA port and connect it to my TV.
How can I use my DVI port and get audio on my TV?
There's also a digital audio port underneath, but I'm not sure what I would need, and need to do to use it.
Is there a way I can get sound with just the DVI->HDMI port?
I'm running on Windows Vista 64.

DVI and VGA only carries video.
HDMI can carry video and audio. Connecting a DVI - HDMI adapter will not yield audio since DVI does not carry audio.

Well what kind of motherboard do you have? I'm pretty sure it'll have a optical or SPDIF coaxial out.

Can you use a DVI->HDMI cable and set the audio source on the HDMI channel to analogue? Think you should then be able to source the sound from Red/White from the component ports.

The DVI doesn't have sound in it.Only if you have a dedicated GPU with SPDIF in.
