    I have a projector that uses DVI and VGA. It doesn't have an HDMI port on it...

    I know I can get an HDMI-DVI adapter for video, but does anyone know of anything to get for audio?

    Thank you for your help! :)

    I assume you use some sort of home theater system for audio now? The Revue has an optical out which should hook up to your AVR.

    Belkin Audio Y Cable Splitter 1-Mini Plug/2-RCA Plugs (6ft)

    Could you use something like this on your projector or just use the optical cable from the GTV box?

    Does the review have an output like that? Or just HDMI and Optical?

    If anyone knows of an HDMI to DVI/Audio splitter, that would be awesome. :)

    Lol. I know I need to... Unfortunately, I am broke. The only reason I am getting a revue is that I won it. If it wasn't for that, I wouldn't be getting one for quite a while...

    Hollywood I guess you don't have DISH VIP 622, DircTV DVR or any cable box? Looks like using the outputs from one of these boxes (can't use optical cable either?) Don't know what the inputs look like on your projector but I would think there would be some way to use the above or make-shift something to get sound directly to your speakers. No A/V receiver either? There is always a way, but without a full description of your set-up I can't help with any more suggestions.
