Newbie HDMI Question

Hi,

Please excuse this question, but since everything is carried through the
HDMI Cable. Then why underneath it does it Audio Inputs.

The only thing I can think of is if you have DVI to HDMI.


#2

Why does WHAT have audio inputs??? Please be more specific on what you are asking


#3

If your looking on your TV then its there because not all sources can generate audio over the hdmi cable (mainly older nVidia pc graphics cards etc).


#4

And if you mean your new HD-DVD player, it is because not all users have audio/video hardware that supports HDMI and/or audio decoding over HDMI. So those users can output standard audio from the player.

Some of the newer HP monitors have built-in speakers and a HDMI input. If you use one of their cpus that doesn’t have a HDMI output then you will need that audio input for the speakers. Maybe that’s what he’s referring to.
