Can I connect a Power Mac G5 tower to an HDTV with this cord?

I recently acquired a Mac tower and would like to hook it up to my Samsung 32" HDTV. I have it hooked up now with a DVI-to-HDMI cord, but the sound does not play through the TV. I'd like to have an HDMI cord that can play the sound. Will this cord work?

    try just hooking up your sound system through the earphone jack on the rear or front of the tower. That should provide you with sound to go along with your video feed.

  • No, this isn't possible on the G5. Only the video signal is sent through it's graphics card.

  • It, won't because the computer won't provide sound through the HDMI cable.
