    Hi. I am trying to connect my TV (HDMI) To HD Box (DVI). The picture is perfect, but I'm not getting any sound. I have attached pictures. Does anyone know how I can get sound? Thanks!

    In the owners manual of the TV it should have instructions for this.DVI never carried audio.Your pics, for me(on a phone), don't work.Essentially...you have to run a stereo analog cable over to the TV. There are instructions to that. (If not in the OM, call the manufacturer of the TV).

    It looks like you have a dedicated 1/8" stereo jack on the back of your TV for the PC/DVI input. Go get a stereo RCA to 1/8" stereo jack adapter (if you want to be really cheap, these things are available at nearly every dollar store in North America). Plug the 1/8" plug into the back of your TV, then plug the RCA cables into the jacks on the adapter. Problem solved.

    This is even more elegant as solutions go: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021804&p_id=665&seq=1&format=2
