Is there any way of using a computer screen with a now tv

Resolved Question:

Is there any way of using a computer screen with a now tv box. I can plug-it in with HDMI but is there a way of getting sound from the box to external speakers. I don't want to have to buy a television when I have a large PC monitor.

What you need is a HDMI audio extractor where the hdmi video signal goes on to the monitor but you can intercept the audio and feed it to your computer speakers , sound bar etc.

Here is an example ; http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1080P-HDMI-Extractor-Splitter-HDMI-Digital-to-Analog-3-5mm-Out-Audio-HDMI2HDMI-/151897909458?hash=item235dd228d2:g:WVsAAOSwp5JWWWyU

You can simply search for " HDMI audio extractor " and you will find quite a few on the market and especially ebay .
