    Default Hooking up PC to TV but I cant get sound


    Title says it all.

    I hooked up my PC through VGA cable to my Kuro 5080. I see the picture just fine but I am not able to get sound to come out from my TV speaker or speakers that are plugged into my computer. BTW I'm viewing this webpage right now on my TV. Can I please get some help fast?

    If you only have your PC hooked up with a VGA cable, you are going to need a cable for audio as well.
    A VGA cable does not carry any audio signal.

    Depending on the audio output of your sound card will depend on how you are going to hook it up

    Behind your television, next to the VGA input, there should be one of two types of inputs for sound. Either a stereo (Red and White) input, or most likely a stereo mini input (the type of connector you use for headphones). If that is the case, you'll need a stereo mini cable to go from your audio output on the computer to the PC audio input on the television.

    If the input is a stereo pair (red and white), then just get a stereo mini to red and white female. Attach a pair of audio cables to that, and then on the PC end do the same thing.

    If none of those connections are present, then Pioneer probably just decided to only allow the television as a display, expecting you to the hook up the computer to an alternate audio output device , like a preamp or reciever.

    If you have a surround sound system, then you can just run VGA to the TV and (depending on your sound card, you may have a Digital Coax out or a optical out on your sound card) run either a optical, digital coax, or a stereo pair, coupled with a stereo mini to female RCA on both ends, to the desired input on your audio pre amp or reciever.

    I hope this was helpful.

    Hey, you're in luck. That Pioneer does have a PC input for sound. It's labeled,

    AUDIO (STEREO)

    PC INPUT

    It's right below the optical input on the back of the television.

    So yeah, all you need is a long stereo mini cable. You can get fourteen foot ones at radio shack or best buy.

    Default 2 ways to get audio over


    1) You could use a 3.5mm Male/Male cable

    Connect this cable from your headphone jack on your PC to the audio input of the TV

    2) Use a 3.5mm to Dual RCA cable and use the standard audio input on your TV:

    3) If you want to use the speaker output from your PC, there is a cool feed-thru cable that will do the trick:

    You can find all of these reasonably priced at ShowMeCables

    Hope that helps

    After going through this my self, I found the best route (if available to you) is to buy 3 stereo miniplug to stereo RCA (i.e. 2 rca plugs out) converters and plug them into the multi channel analoge in's. Side step all this digital coax nonsense.

    Be careful when not viewing movies from the PC on your Kuro and just web browsing. I have the Elite FHD1 and desktop images retain very easily.
