Does S video signal also contain audio, or is it video only?

    I have a PNY GeForce FX 5200 with an S-Video TV out.

    My TV has S-Video in and the video is fine. But does S-Video also
    carry the audio signal? I do not get audio from the TV when I'm using

    I've been running a separate cable from my sound card to speakers or
    headphones, but I'd really like to be able to adjust the sound
    remotely on the TV. Is that possible or am I doing the best I can with

    U have to hook ur soundcard to ur tvcard, then u'll hear sound. On ur
    Tvcard there is a hole for sound out. Use a cord to connect that to the
    line in of ur soundcard. U might have to buy a cord and maybe a adapter(if
    u need to plug more then one device into ur soundcard's line in).

    Important: make sure u buy the right size plug for ur tvcard. Mine(old WinTv
    Card) had a mini plug like you use on a walkman. It fit the hole but still
    would not work, I had to get another one with a smaller mini plug to get the
    sound to work. But it should not be a problem for u with a modern Tvcard.

    Hmm, I just reread ur message. U don't have a TV card? U want to run the
    sound through ur tv? I have a lineout to my Vcr's sound in. Is that what u
    want to do? See if there is a line in for sound on ur Tv. I know there is
    one for ur vcr if u have one.

    I run my line out from my soundcard to my vcr's sound in. Then I run that
    with an adapter to my stero to my alt input. My speakers are then hooked to
    my boombox. Works for me.

    s-video is video only. Run a cable from the computer audio out to the TV
    audio in. Stereo mini-jack on PC end and RCA on TV end.

    4 pins= video only (actually they are 2x2 shunt)
    7 pins= video + audio 2ch (not standard, but found on laptops and other
    similar aplications)
