    [Answered] PS3 sound through monitor speakers help?


    hey guys, so i'm using my ps3 through my monitor but i cant get the speakers to work. the monitor has build in speakers, i'm using a HDMI cable to connect the ps3 to the monitor, i have selected HDMI in the audio output settings of the ps3 and as far as i can see there is nothing i can do with the sound in the monitor setting apart from change the volume.

    it works if i plug my headphones into the monitor but i would much rather have it through the monitor speakers.

    monitor: Asus VS248H

    any help greatly appreciated, thanks

    You Can Also Try To Check That In Sound Settings When Choosing HDMI Click On Automatic Option Not On Manual Because Sometimes The TV Does not Support The Sound Formats Like 7.1 LINEAR PCM .Etc

    from what you said, it's obviously the monitor's speaker are defect since headphones out are fine.

    Asus VS248H model doesn't have speakers.
    See: asus.com/Display/LCD_Monitors/VS248H/#specifications

    The VE248H model has speakers.
    See: asus.com/Display/LCD_Monitors/VE248H/#specifications

    So your monitor doesn't have built-in stereo speakers.

    End of story.

    I was stunned when I found out hdmi monitors didn't have speakers. I had one that did so I assumed they all did xD. Sad day for hdmi users

    I prefer to buy separate speakers to use instead of the ones on the tv/moniters anyhow because of the options to make surround sound.
