    Default Can I get video through HDMI and audio through headphone jack?

    Thing is I have an old TV with a DVI connection - I have put an HDMI Convertor on it and it woks fine with my laptop - so with a laptop I output the video via the HDMI cable to the television and stick an audio cable in the headphone socket and get the sound through my hifi.

    Someone tried it for me just using a HDMI to HDMI and no sound came from the headphone jack however I wondered if because mine was not "true" HDMI it might work?

    Will an android tablet do this?

    Sorry, but from what I know it will not work that way....

    Try SoundAbout in the market. It allows you to re-route the media audio.
