I have a GTX 570 outputting DVI to HDMI to a monitor and HDMI to a TV. Computer speakers are connected via 3.5mm and work fine. TV is getting the HDMI from the video card and outputting via optical to a receiver.
I've set up both the monitor and TV to share the same display which has worked fine. When I go to sound settings the TV is listed and it says HDMI and all that and when I do a sound test it works fine...I get the tone from the speakers connected to the receiver. However, whenever I play anything on the computer, a video, music, Youtube, anything...I only get audio from the computer speakers. I've tried making the TV the primary device but this does not work, only disables the computer speakers. I know everything is hooked up right because I get the tone from both when I test both, so it has to be a setting.
I'm trying to setup my PC to send out audio through my TV speaker. The video works fine, but the sound is still coming out from my primary monitor/speaker that is connected to my PC. I would like sound to come out from the TV.
I've looked in the Control Panel Sound Options, the only device that shows up is "Realtek HD Audio Rear Output"
Card: NVidia GeForce 9400 GT
-PC monitor connected via VGA to the PC
-PC to TV (video) connected with DVI to HDMI via DVI-HDMI adapter (not cable)
-Only outputs are VGA and DVI. There are no other ports.
PC Motherboard: Has Digital Audio In and Out Ports
OS: Windows XP SP3 running integrated sound
TV: Audio Output, Digital Audio Output (Optical)
Can sound be transmitted through the DVI to HDMI adapter?
Will a DVI to HDMI cable transmit the audio?
Will I need to purchase a sound card?
Is there any software I can install to make this work?
Will I need to purchase a 3.5mm
