I have a Hp dv7 Entertainment Notebook that uses windows Vista, and I connected it to my 42" Vizio plasma using an HDMI cable, so that I could watch internet shows on the television.
The picture is fine, but how do I get sound to my surround sound system?
Do I have to us an AV output sound cable from my laptop to my receiver?
I thought the HDMI cable was created so that it could carry sound and HD video, so that you wouldn't have to have a ton of cables running around your house.
Can anyone help me?
