PC audio to Toshiba 42X3030D


Standard Member
Hi All

Please can someone help?

I am trying to get audio from my PC to my toshiba 42X3030D, I am using a DVI to HDMI cable for the video from a nvidia 8800 GTX, which gives me 1920 X 1080P.

How do I get the audio to play through the TV when I play a film or game?

Thanks for any help.

don't know if this is any help but in my setup my Laptop 'audio out' is via optical, do you have that option ?

You have to use the phono PC input on the X3030D, and an analogue output on the PC.

Only HDMI1 allows analogue PC input, you have to set the TV menu:-

MENU > SET UP > AV connection > PC/HDMI1 audio (set to HDMI1)

The PC will probably have a 3.5mm phono socket (like headphone socket), you will need a 3.5mm to RCA phono cable, as un-usually for a LCD TV, the Tosh has phono inputs for the PC audio (most lcd TV's have the same 3.5mm socket as the PC). On the PC the socket will be coloured GREEN, for stereo.

On your PC you may have to alter your sound options to enable analogue out, I output both analogue, and digital (via optical to AMP). So I have the option of cranking up the volume for 5.1 stuff.

You may choose to use the TV speakers as centres when using your PC, if you already have active Left / right PC style speakers in your set up.
