hey i was wondering if any of you know if the ASUS VH242H 24 inch lcd 1080p monitor is capable of using hdmi sound. it has an hdmi input on the back which i'mi connecting my sony ps3 to via hdmi --> hdmi. but i currently have the digital optical inputs hooked up to the screen as far as sound goes because i wasn't getting any sound from just the hdmi alone. i know dvi to hdmi won't get any sound but i'm hdmi to hdmi so what gives?
