PC to TV via HDMI- Sound cuts/artifacting Tags: Radeon TV HDMI Graphics Last response: July 20, 2012 2:52 PM in Graphics & Displays Share AJ Laird July 20, 2012 1:54:15 PM Hello, not sure where I should have asked this but I recently purchased a Blu-Ray drive for me PC and connected an HDMI cord to my Radeon 4850 to my Toshiba 40" LCD. The picture looks great and the sound works but after a few moments whether i'm viewing my desktop on my TV or playing a PC game on it, or watching a movie the sound randomly drops in and out. There is also the issue of the TV screen having random artifacting for split seconds. My question is what could be the problem? Could it be the HDMI cord that is causing the issue? I don't think it's my graphics card because this doesn't happen when playing PC games on my PC monitor. Only when I duplicate the image to my TV.
