I run a Karaoke show using my laptop and it works perfectly when I split the screen and have the graphics on a seperate monitor using the standard vga cable.
I plug the lead for sound into the headphone jack and then through a yamaha dry desk which in turn gives me my output through the speakers and base bin. So far, so good.
However, I now need to put the graphics on a LCD TV. I connected laptop to tv using HDMI lead and the graphics were there perfectly. HOWEVER, I now have no sound from my desk or speakers or laptop unless I unplug the HDMI lead and then the sound returns to my setup.
I understand that the HDMI lead is obviously doing as it is meant to do and transferring all sound and graphics to the TV.
My question is very simple,.,.,.,
Is there a way to stop the sound being transferred to the tv?
I would appreciate an answer if possible in laymans language as I am not very computer literate but I also am not afraid of them.
