How to play audio in my Philips TV from an external device using a DVI to HDMI connection?

When you make a DVI-HDMI connection you have to make a separate audio connection, since DVI does not support audio.

There are two ways to connect a DVI device to your TV:

  • Side DVI-HDMI connection
  • Rear DVI-HDMI connection

Side DVI to HDMI connection

Follow these steps to connect the devices:

  1. Switch the external device and the TV off.
  2. Connect the DVI-to-HDMI adapter from the DVI connection of the external device to the HDMI connection at the side of the TV.
  3. Connect the audio cable from the AUDIO OUT connection of the external device to the AUDIO L R connection at the side of the TV.
  4. Switch the external device and the TV on.
  5. Press the [Source] button on the remote control repeatedly to select [HDMI side] and press the [OK] button to accept.

  3. Connect the mini-jack audio cable from the AUDIO OUT connection of the external device to the AUDIO IN: LEFT/ RIGHT connection at the rear of the TV.
  4. Switch the external device and the TV on.
  5. Press the [Source] button on the remote control repeatedly to select HDMI 1/2/3 depending on where the external device is connected and press the [OK] button to accept.
