can i use an HDMI for video and RCA cables for sound?

6 replies 167 views Edited Apr 2, 2013

Ok is this possible; i wish to use a T.V. AND a monitor at the same time. the problem is that my monitor does not have built in speakers. my plan, if it is possible, is to use a DVI Male To HDMI Female Converter Adapter Connector and connect it to my HDMI for the monitor. i need the monitor for video. Then i wish to plug my rca cable into my t.v. and use that for sound. i have seen on other posts that you can disable the sound for the HDMI and then disable the video for the RCA cables. if this is to counfusing reply and ill try to simplify it

                                                                                                                  

                                                                                                                      Thanks!,

Yes it can be done and fairly easy:

Settings -> Display Settings -> Video Output Settings = HDMI
Settings -> Sounds Settings -> Audio Output Settings = Audio Input Conector/SCART/AV Multi

It makes no difference.  DVI doesn't carry audio anyway, so if you are using a DVI monitor, then you would have to output the audio through the digital optical output port, or the multi-out port.
