ok so i have a tv tuner card, and it works fine but ive got a HDMI converter (goes into s-video in and has 3 cords at other end) witch ive plugged into it and then plugged my ps2 into that, the video works and i can play the ps2 fine, but theres no sound, ive tryed plugging the cords into the 2 diffent ends of the HMDI cord thing, and still no sound.

id really like sound from it but theres none

S-video doesnt carry sound, so you'll need to run audio inputs as well.

oh ok, wasnt aware of that.

do you have any idea where i can plug the left and right sound into?

i have 5.1 speakers witch i run though my 5.1 sound card.

If you have 5.1 audio output from your sound card, and only need 2 channels for tv, you would use the front left/right pair from the soundcard, usually the green plug. If it's only got a digital output (coax, optical) then you'll need a decoder to break it into separate channels.

No, I think you were misunderstood. It should be labeled, what the plugs are. It even ask what you plugged in, if you plug it into any jack.
