I have my computer connected to my HDTV through a DVI cable. Obviously I don't have audio, and I want my TV to output the audio! I read that with a toslink cable that is possible, but the problem is that I do not have a toslink port in my CPU, just on my HDTV.

Well, What could I do about this?

This is my computer rear:

and my HDTV rear:

side view(just in case):

Please help me, I would like to have the best audio possible on my HDTV, thanks!

A 3.5m Stereo jack to 2RCA cable from the PC 'Line Out' (Lime) to the DVI Audio input on the TV is what you require!


PS and get the vacuum out before you start plugging in cables - its pretty grotty around the back of your TV, if your PC is close by it likely needs to be de-clogged too before it starts to overheat!
