    The audio jack must be on the same input as the HDMI. If HDMI is on input 1 and the audio jack is on input 2, it's not possible.

    well hdmi seems to be it's own input cause it just says HDMI 1/2/3 I have "HDMI 2" for my 360 and "HDMI 3" for my macbook. And it has an audio input on the back but its not for a specific "Input". Still not to sure how to get it to work.

    You should read the owners manual for your TV, it sounds like you would learn a lot.

    ya sounds like u know what youre doing. You just need to find out which audio jacks are for which input. You're gonna have to read that tv manual.

    On my tv i have one hdmi input and right next to it is the red and white audio jacks.
