Laptop-tv connection: audio and video on different channels! Tags: HDTV Laptops Connection Audio Video Home Theatre Last response: August 21, 2010 4:55 PM in Home Theatre Share alerossi82 August 21, 2010 11:28:02 AM Hello, I have recently bought a PANASONIC VIERA TX-L32U10E and tried to connect it with my laptop FUJITSU/SIEMENS AMILO. As my laptop hasn't got a HDMI socket, I bought a DVI-HDMI cable to connect them. Moreover, as from DVI there is no sound transmission, I used an audio cable as well. The result is video and audio pass to the TV on 2 different channels! The video is displayed on the HDMI channel and the audio on the COMPONENET channel. Anybody knows why? Is there a way to have both audio and video on the same channel?

You've connected your laptop's audio out to the component audio input. Check to see if there is an option in your TV's settings to disable HDMI-Audio. If so, check to see what other audio inputs are available on your TV (look close to the PC D-Sub interface). -Wolf sends alerossi82 August 21, 2010 4:55:43 PM Wolfshadw said:Your TV is looking for audio on the HDMI port and not finding a signal.

Actually it was easier than expected, I just had to change the HDMI input from Digital to Analogue and now it works perfectly! Thank you again! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
