A friend is trying to connect her PC (Windows 7) to a projector for video and a receiver for audio. The projector does not support HDMI, so she's using VGA. The receiver does have HDMI, so she's using that for audio. If she doesn't plug in the projector, the audio plays fine. As soon as she connects the VGA, HDMI audio is no longer an option in the Sound settings and audio starts playing through the laptops built in speakers. Is there a way to have HDMI for audio and VGA for video at the same time? [more inside]
How do I connect my Roku 3's audio channel through an old AV receiver? I have an Onkyo that works fine, but it has no HDMI inputs. I just upgraded to the Roku 3, and there are no RCA outputs. I don't want to spend $250-$500 on a new AV receiver, and don't want to invest in a soundbar. I'm hoping I can still use my receiver. I was looking at this thing (http://goo.gl/SphLUa) at Monoprice, but not sure if and how I would use it.
Bought stick-computer that has HDMI, USB, and Bluetooth. TV only has DVI (and older) inputs. Can't figure out a way to get the audio hooked up. [more inside]
Fixing an HDMI connector: I broke the connector on one end of an in-wall HDMI cable. Is fixing it possible? This AskMeFi
thread proceeded with some of the answers I found on the internet until the poster realized they had a DVI cord.
So, I have an HDMI cable, one connector is broken, it runs 35 feet on a convoluted run through the walls and ceiling of an old house, so running new cable will not be as simple as just affixing a string to the old one and pulling it through.
Is fixing it possible?
