I hooked up my tv as the computer monitor. Picture is great, no sound.

I have GX620, Kworld UB445-U2 and XP

I used the VGA cable. Connected the audio into the green (out) on the computer to the hole next to the cable connection on the TV. (As far as I can tell from the TV manual that is the right one. But I tried all the others and none of them work.

 

I set the audio properties for stereo monitor.

In setup, the integrated audio is on.

No yellow exclamation points anywhere in device drivers.

All devices show as working.

thanks for replying.

Everything is plugged in right. pc sound out on cumputer to pc audio in on tv.
the picture is great, so how can it be the cable?
I also have a usb sound card. audio out on that is plugged into R&L speakers on tv.
from audio control panel sound is set for monitor stereo speakers.

PC has onboard sound. I tried it with that turned off and on. no sound.

the VGA cable is for picture. The small line cord with the 1/8" mini on each end is for sound. This is the cable I was refering to, does it work when connected to pc speakers ?

 

On the TV do you have to set the source as PC and are there settings there for audio ?

 

What make and model of TV do you have ?

The computer has onboard sound. Dell says the green out goes to the TV

volume is up   Yes

plugged in to audio in on TV ? Yes

cable works with other devices ? TV work fine on its own, just no sound with adapter.

 Onboard speakers. No cable needed. I have a usb sound card which doesn’t get me sound either, but that uses 2 RCA plugs which are plugged into R&L audio on tv.

I  switch the source from TV to VGA. Just the TV volume control.

There is volume control for the pc tv adapter on the software, but that doesn’t work.

What make and model of TV do you have ?

Curtis LCD 2425A

Tech support for the adapter says I need to update audio drivers. I reloaded the drivers for the tv adapter and rescanned the channels. Sound came on during the scan but now nothing. I will look up pc drivers, but I don’t think they are too old.

Ready to ship the thing back. It get too hot anyway.

 

Thank you for your help.

Do you have a HDMI connection that you can use? If you have one, you can carry picture & sound through the same cable.

 

When you go to the speaker icon that's in the notification tray on the bottom right of your computer, and you right click it and go to playback devices, is everything working correctly?

I don't know about the speaker icon, but when I go to computer-hard ware-drivers, everything is working.

Also everything in audio file in control panel.

 

I suppose I could go out and buy a HDMI cable.

Do you have a 3.5 mm stereo to red-white RCA adapter? That will also work, which ever approach you want to take. Make sure before you go out and buy a HDMI cable that your sound-card or whatever device your using for sound supports HDMI.

 

There's a setting somewhere that's not configured properly. When you refer to audio out, are you referring to the standard green colored port on your sound card?

adapter ? wait a sec. I am so sorry. I see what this KWorld thing is now. Why not just plug your TV signal cable(coax) into the TV ?.

As to the Kworld thing, maybe the audio is not getting through that device.

 

Now, this USB sound card (model / make ?) is like an external device that you can plug other things into ? Is it a sound adapter ?

 

I would unplug the Kworld and the USB sound thing and borrow a set of computer speakers to plug into the green (audio out) on your computers sound card. Play a CD or go to youtube and verify that the sound card on the computer works properly.

 

You mentioned onboard speakers. Where are they ? You mean on the TV ? or in the computer box ?

 

Sorry for all the questions

 

lets start with that.
