  1. Hi all :wave: .. This is my first post on a PC forum .. so i hope it makes sense.

    I have recently discovered that my PC is able to receieve TV picture with antenna plugged in. The picture is superb but i am unable to get sound.
    I do however still get sound (from monitor speakers) when useing the PC for CD playback or games etc. Just the TV sound a problem.
    I have an ATI All-in-Wonder 9200 graphics card with PCTV & a realtek AC97 Sound card i believe (hope this makes sense :blush: )

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Hello and welcome to techspot!

    Here is your card's user manual:
    http://www2.ati.com/manuals/AW9200Sr.pdf

    Go down to the part titled:

    Selecting the sound card connector for TV audio input (page 20)

    and follow the instructions there.

    Good luck!

    Wow ... What quick responses ... Thankyou

    I have now taken the side off my PC & it seems there is no cable from sound card to ATI card.

    Where can i get the lead/cable i would need ..any internet links would be appreciated ??

    This now brings me onto another question ... i can see the "line in" on sound card but the only available socket on ATI card is a multi pin "video out" ... Is this where it goes ??
