So the machine arrived yesterday and it's all hooked up.
I have the HDMI cord from the vid card out to the monitor and am getting full HD picture. Sweet!
However, there's no sound. Which makes sense in my brain since sound and vid come from two different places on a pc. (Or should the HDMI cord carry the sound like in a home theater set up?)
On the back of the monitor (integrated speakers) there's a port that says HDMI Sound and has a symbol like this ((O)) only it's vertical and not horizontal.
There is a matching port like that on the back of the sound card on the pc itself as well. However, I can't figure out what kind of cord this is supposed to be.
Is it just a 3.5 mm jack (does a 3.5mm jack 'do' HD sound?) or something special? Is it an optical cable with TOSLINK adapter jacks on it?
There's a separate optical cable output on the pc soundcard but not on the monitor.
Thanks all. It has been a LONG time since I've done this.
