Does a component video connection also carry an audio signal?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

A component video connection does not carry audio signals. When using a component video cable to connect two video products together, an audio cable must be used to carry any audio signals and provide sound.

NOTE: Not all video products have component video ports. To see if your video device has component video ports, check the specifications or supplied operating guide. Manuals are posted on your model support page.
