    issue #1 DVI is Digital Video and while it can connect to HDMI (which carries both audio & video), DVI carries only video. So DVI output on the PC immediately drops all audio.

    Hi, Maybe i explained it wrongly,there is no video or audio showing on the television,the audio is plugged into the audio out and on the tv audio in.Regards Martin
