I recently tried to run RCA cables from the 3.5mm speaker jack on my PC with a 3.5mm to RCA converter cable(6") to my HDTV however when I hook it up through the "HDMI port 1" audio inputs I don't receive any sound on the television, what can I do to fix this problem? The television is an Emerson LC401EM2f 40" LCD HDTV

Can anyone give me some input on that place?

How is the video connected to the HDTV? Is the TV set to source: HDMI 1?
yes i had the TV source on HDMI1. and i have the pc hooked up with a dvi to hdmi cable and rca audio cables running from the speaker jack through a 3.5mm to rca adapter to the HDMI audio jacks on the television and i still receive no sound when on video sourse: HDMI1.
Actually when I tried it I didn't have a video source hooked up, just audio, I didn't think it would make a difference.
Try it with the video connected. I wouldn't be surprised if that is the issue.
ok Iill do so and post back tonight, thank you for you're on going help
does your video card support sound over dvi? if so why are you using rca cables? before i had a dedicated receiver i had a direct pc to tv dvi-to-hdmi cable and i had perfect sound. if your unit does support this then perhaps the cable you have is not one of the ones which works for this.
as far as the auxilliary audio input ports on the tv go... perhaps there is a setting or mode you need to be on to use them. browse around the settings on the tv and make sure that the pc has the right audio device selected.
well its a vga to hdmi ran through a dvi to vga, will it still support sound this way? i do not have a dvi to hdmi cable currently.
