It can. My Geforce passes audio through DVI-HDMI to an LK450 just fine.

Not true at all, there are many video cards (and have been for years) that will provide audio through DVI with the proper DVI to HDMI adapter. I own several cards that do this, it has mainly been an ATi feature.

Thanks so much for putting this thread together. Pleased to say my LG 32LK450 and my Vizio M260MV are both compatible when using a DVI --> HDMI adapter or VGA cables. Sorry the pictures aren't better, but you can at least see the evidence. LG is a VA, non-IPS panel (guess I am a lottery loser)



LG using DVI--> HDMI and renaming HDMI 1 to 'PC'. (I know the LK450 was already confirmed, this is just confirming another size)



Vizio M260MV using DVI-->HDMI (no renaming of input)



LG When using HDMI-->HDMI and renaming HDMI 1 to 'PC'.

Again, you cannot pass audio through DVI hence the need for HDMI plug on the other end....


Why do you think older DVI monitors with speakers ran a seperate audio cable?

repeating something that is not true will not make it true............


Since the DVI specification does not support audio transport, an interoperability problem arises when an HDMI-source drives a legacy DVI display (such as a PC monitor), or conversely, when a DVI source drives an HDMI display. While HDMI and DVI compliance rules ensure that a DVI video connection can be successfully negotiated and established (via a mutually supported display mode), the audio signal must still be transported through means outside of the DVI connection. Typically, an HDMI-equipped source will provide additional outputs for audio, such as line-level analog and SPDIF, which provide a baseline audio program (such as stereo PCM). Likewise, when displaying video from an HDMI jack, an HDMI-equipped display may support alternate audio sourcing from a separate pair of analog-audio inputs. Provision for any of these compatibility mechanisms is down to the manufacturer; they are not specified by HDMI. By 2010 nearly all HDMI-equipped sources (set-top and media-extender boxes, Blu-ray and DVD players, and PCs) provided separate analog audio outputs, and many HDMI-equipped televisions supported alternate-audio input when sourcing video from an HDMI input.


There are consumer adapters available to place between a DVI source and HDMI device which can insert a separate audio signal into an HDMI TMDS data stream.[113] DVI connectors on PC video cards have also been increasingly able to take advantage of HDMI features such as audio output.

You didn't mention anything about "need for HDMI plug on the other end..." in your reply, hence my remark. People may think there's no way to pass audio through DVI output, and that's not true.


So try to clarify your posts before going "all educational".

Sceptre X405BV-FHD 40" LCD on sale at Walmart, free shipping, $299. If you google "X405BV-FHD 4:4:4" you can see where text pops up claiming that the set does support 4:4:4, but, I cannot get to the link. Since Sceptre has a huge PC display presence, I tend to believe the text. Anyone else with any more info on this set. Does it support proper 4:4:4 and especially, latency.

Nobody claimed DVI to DVI audio, you went right past the context of this thread and I don't recall anyone here trying to pass audio over a DVI -> DVI cable.

Hello guys.

I have a few questions about LCD TV as a PC monitor / pixels / clarity / fonts / etc

Colors are looking great.But the only think i dont like is the clarity of the text / pixels.

They look crap, compared to monitor ....

My lcd tv is LG 32LK430


I read some stuff about 4:4:4

Those lcd tv´s with 4:4:4 reduction have a much better clarity on the / letter / text / on websites ??

Please help me with some advices. I love my lcd tv, and i wanna keep it as my pc monitor.

Thanks in advance.

My 32LK450 supports 4:4:4 chroma over dvi-hdmi cable only when the hdmi is relabeled as PC. Using RGB cable it supports 4:4:4 chroma without relabeling. Does anyone else have the same issue?


@bluekidd: If you are using a hdmi-dvi cable then try relabeling the HDMI(1 2 or 3) input port to "PC". It worked for me. If you are using hdmi-hdmi cable then you can try the EDID override fix and see if it works. If it doesn't work then you need to either use a dvi-hdmi cable or a vga cable.

Quick question: is 4:4:4 chroma subsampling relevant to the RGB color space too or just YCbCr? I'm asking about a DVI or HDMI connection, not VGA.

Problem resolved. My 32lk450 now passes chroma test when input is set to anything via dvi-hdmi cable. I just enabled just scan(under aspect ratio) in picture settings and it resolved the issue. Thanks JoshZH.

I see a lot of dvi to hdmi talk. Does Mini hdmi to hdmi work with 4:4:4 ? That's how my video card connects to tv.

4:4:4 from HDMI>HDMI seems to be pretty rare on TVs. Being mini or micro shouldn't cause any further complications than HDMI>HDMI would as they are just smaller and have a different pinout. You'll need to try and locate a TV that can do 4:4:4 over HDMI>HDMI though. Is that the only connection you have on the video out?

It's by far one of the most hassle free ways and I don't think anyone has managed to get 4:4:4 via HDMI>HDMI on an LG yet. I would personally use DVI>HDMI simply because it's known to work and you're not going to get a degradation in quality from it. HDMI is touted as the end all be all of digital signals (or was till display port came along) but, DVI can still do higher resolutions than HDMI (ignoring HDMI 1.3) and I don't hear anyone complaining about quality on their 2560x1440 monitors via dual link DVI>dual link DVI. HDMI was simply the format that "caught on" for electronics so that's what stuff migrated to.


Just remember that if you're on a Nvidia card, you may need to do an EDID override (which is pretty simple and free). On both AMD/ATi and Nvidia, you'll need to make sure your video card control panel isn't trying to overscan/undersdscan the image though this tends to be more of an issue with AMD/ATi.

I did as you said. Looks much better now but i cannot access some features on the menu TV, like : sharpness / tint / colours and on Advanced Control i can only access 2 functions ( Black Level / Gamma )

I wish i could use Sharpness when HDMI is relabeling as PC.

So you don't actually need PC mode. All you need to do is set aspect ratio as just scan and you can play with sharpness. And also make sure that you test(read the very 1st post of this thread on how to test) 4:4:4 chroma. There is a world of difference between 4:4:4 and non 4:4:4.

Without pc mode, text looks horrible. If i have HDMI as pc mode, text looks 100 times better, but as i said, i cannot access sharpness.

Yes, i did the 4:4:4 chroma test, it seems to be okay.
