I have recently purchased a Hdmi (male) to Dvi male 25ft long cable - with the intention of getting video and audio on my LCD television, however that is not the case as i only get video - which is stunning btw.
how do i get audio ? do i do something additional or is it my graphics card (ATI Radeon HD 4550) does not support audio. I don't wanna spend unnecessary money.
Your graphic card needs to have an HDMI output to carry audio. If it does not have one, then you will need to connect the PC to the HDTV via other means for audio as well as the DVI to HDMI cable (for video).
AMD also states that your card has HDMI® output support. It supports all display resolutions up to 1920x10802 -- Integrated HD audio controller with up to 2 channel 48 KHz stereo or multi-channel (7.1) AC3 enabling a plug-and-play cable-less audio solution http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/graphics/ati-rad...
