  • What about the cables
1. Does a DVI-to-HDMI cable carry audio ? NO. DVI has no audio capability. You will need a separate audio cable to transmit sound, i.e. Red/white composite, TOSLink (optical), or coaxial.

HDMI cables do carry audio.

2. Do i need to spend a lot of money for an audio/video cable ? Absolutely not. Test equipment may be able to differentiate between a $100 "monster" type cable and a $10 no-name cable but very few human ears can. There are many online sources for high-quality, low-cost cables such as monoprice.com and others.
