hi,

i wanted to watch a movie which i brought back from america but apparently we have a different code here. so i cant watch it over my regular dvd player so i thought ill hook up my laptop through HDMI and give it a try. Everything works great but what bothers me is that th e sound comes from the laptop instead of the tv.

i dont have any cables to attach them. further more i don't have any speakers either.

is there a way to get the sound coming out from the TV? When i think, my Playstation 3 also just uses the HDMI cable only so why should my computer be different?

Any help greatly apperciated.

Thanks

It would be easier to run the sound through your stereo system if you have one but you need a cable for that too. I paid 10 USD for one which is not expensive at all.

I didn't know that it all had to be done tonight. When I used to watch TV, I ran the sound through my stereo as well. So even if you can't make it happen tonight, you can make a complete integrated system using all your components.
