    Dear all that are reading,

    I currently have a Sony Vaio laptop that has a HDMI output. I want to use a HDMI cable to connect my laptop up to a Samsung UE40B8000XW LED TV. The TV does have numerous HDMI inputs. (Please bare in mind I havent yet purchased the TV yet)

    For sound I connect up my BOSE sound system using the 3mm stereo jack on the laptop.

    Ok the situation is I still want to use the BOSE sound system when I connect up my laptop with the TV (Output cable from BOSE is only a 3mm stereo plug). The question is does the HDMI cable transfer sound to the TV and I will have to hook up the BOSE system to the TV or can I still hookup the BOSE system to the 3mm jack on the laptop and still get sound?

    Any advice and help much appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Slickbone

    HDMI does transfer audio if the laptop supports it, but you can still use the stereo jack for audio if you so wish - just mute the audio on the TV.

    If the laptop automatically switches to audio through the HDMI then you can go to the Control Panel and switch it back to the normal sound card.
