Having problems with your IBM ThinkCentre S50 PC Desktop ?

HDTV as a monitor -- is audio possible?

\015 I have an IBM Thinkcentre M-series PC and I have my LG HDTV setup as my monitor. I would like to play a DVD and have the audio go thorugh the monitor, but rogjt now I don't get any audio coming through my monitor. I have a mini-headphone output on the back for my audio and that's it (no sound card for other audio options I guess), but I have SoundMAX digital audio on board. Any thoughts? Thanks for your help!\015

I also have a PG connected to my LCD TV. The problem is that you only can send the video signal to the TV if you are using a VGA or DVI cable. Unless your computer has a dedicated HDMI port, you will have to send your audio in a different way.
What you need, is a "3.5mm Stereo Male to 2 RCA" cable. It looks like this and it costs between 2 -8$ (see here or here), or you can get it at your local Radio Shack or Bestbuy store:

The miniplug connects to your computer mini-headphone output and the white and red jacks to your TV.

Some TV's do have a separate audio input option, some don't. If yours does not have a connection like this, then you can't route audio to the TV. My TV does not, so I took an old stereo system (the CD and tape weren''t working) and use that as my "sound system". Result: it even sounds better than the TV speakers.
Hi,
It depends on the TV really.
Does the TV support PC? if it does it will have a D-SUB on the back, it will look like this >>>>

Now if it has one of these is should also support PC audio in. Look for the audio in on the TV, it will look the same as on the PC (probably black in colour)
If you find the audio in port your just about good to go, all you need is mini to mini stereo audio lead like this >>>>>>

Just connect the lead to the green audio out on the PC and the audio in on the TV.
If your TV has not got an audio in port then you will have get some decent speakers for your desktop and use that.



Good luck.
