A: NO SOUND TROUGH HDMI ON ACER AX3400-U3032 and No HDMI Icon in sound se

Welcome to the Seven Forums

One thing you could try is to open up the Control panel then click on Sound and then go to the Playback tab and see if there is anything in there to enable it that's what I had to do on my laptop.

Hi there, My sound is not working. I only have a HDMI Sound output. However, I don't have any HDMI Output in my computer. I reinstalled windows a couple of times lately, but i don't know for sure if thats the problem.
Right now im using Windows 7 32-Bit, My hardware specs are: CPU: Intel Duo 2 Core. Graphics Card: AMD ATI Radeon HD 3800 Series. Any help or such will be Very much appreciated

A:Sound not working, Only have HDMI Sound Output, But no HDMI port in PC

the HDMI sound is most likely off your GPU but that series seems to not have a HDMI port so that is odd. If you can make sure your onboard audio is on in your BIOS and also run the tool on this page so that you can update all your system info for us. System Info - See Your System Specs

To whom it may concern:

I have a question with multiple parts to it. On my Windows 7 Laptop, it doesn't display the digital output devise (HDMI) icon in Sound. I accidentally removed it from my screen when I was troubleshooting problems with my computer. How do I re-install this icon? Whenever I attempt to use Netflix with my my laptop and my TV, no sound comes from my TV, but from my computer instead. I have a desktop and two laptops, one with no HDMI port so that one doesn't really matter in this instance.

I tried to go to the Mfg's website and it was too] confusing trying to download the audio drivers.

Then when I go to the Intel(R) Graphics and Media program, the set-up is wrong. Somehow there are 3 display screens listed instead of the original two that were there before I got into this mess. How do I change that also or will that clear up as soon as I find the answer to installing the icon?

Oh yeah, since I have two TVs that I use with HDMI ports, do I make the icon the default for audio playback or do I just leave it be?

Somehow I downloaded an icon on this computer and when I went to use it, I think I made it the default and that alienated use for the other TV somehow. There is an icon on the computer for the TV that I set the default to, but as soon as I come into my bedroom and try to use the HDMI port, the icon disappears from the computer. So I can only use the HDMI port on one of my TVs when I wish to use it on both.

Easiest way is to click START, type Device Manager and open it up. From here, you can hit the 'Scan for Hardware Changes' *Second screenshot* button, and any uninstalled device will be picked-up

I have an Acer Aspire laptop.
Playback devices show SPEAKERS - Real Tek High Definition Audio.

The computer will not play surround sound when plugged into my SMART TV. The HDMI output is not disconnected or disabled.

I think it is a driver problem. I recently reinstalled my sound drivers and now have a problem playing off this laptop onto the TV via an HDMI cable (movies, You tube,etc.) My other laptop wrks fine and the ATI HDMI output icon is alive and well

I have been screwing around with this problem for close to 3 hours and despite researching this on the Intenet, I cannot find a solution.

Brand new Windows 7 Home Premium (6 bit) computer. When I click on the Sound control panel item, sometimes it takes 1-2 minutes to open. But that's kind of minor (although I'd like to know how to fix it), because sometimes the HDMI sound to my HDTV works fine, and sometimes it doesn't work at all. The only sure fix is to reboot the computer, which isn't really what I want to do every time I want sound coming from the HDTV speakers.

More details: if I reboot the computer, and then switch from the monitor to the HDTV for my video output, I can open the Sound control panel (opens at normal speed) and then I select the HDTV to be the default sound device; and everything is good. At some point, I stop watching the HDMI output to the HDTV, switch the video to my main monitor, and the sound now comes out of the computer speakers. Great. That's what I want. I can even turn off the HDTV, come back 20 minutes later, switch the video back to the HDTV and the sound goes through the HDTV speakers. Switch back and forth a couple of times and everything works as expected. Great. That's what I want.

But at some later point in time, it stops working, and I don't know what triggers this. At this later point in time, I switch the video from the monitor to the HDTV, but now the sound remains with the computer speakers, if I try to open the sound control panel, it takes 1-2 minutes, and when it finally opens the sound control panel no longer lets me select the HDTV to be the default soun...

A:Sound Control panel takes 2 minutes to open; HDMI sound inconsistent

I had the slow opening sound panel/playback section for a while. I tried several things and all of a sudden the problem went away. Not sure what fixed it but I have updated the AMD video card drivers several times, no audio driver updates. The only common point is that I too have an AMD video card (HD7770).

In most cases, if the PC "speakers" (sound card) is set as the default audio playback device and then an HDMI cable is plugged into the PC it will automatically switch to the HDMI sound (and make it the default playback device), and if the cable is disconnected it automatically switches back to the speakers. If you are having problems accessing the sound panel, this is another option (for most) until you get the slow opening panel issue resolved.

Windows 8.1 Pro, 64-bit. I finally got video and sound to come out both the mobo and the NVidia video/HDMI card.
MOBO is Foxconn G41MXE. Sound system on mobo is NM10/ICH7 Family High Definition audio Controller, by Intel.
Video Card is GeForce GTX 550 Ti, with NVidia GF116 High Definition Audio Controller. Video card has HDMI output
connected to TV set, containing both video and sound. (Video from NVidia goes to both monitor and TV.)
Windows 8.1 with all updated drivers, as far as i know, based on two driver update apps. In Windows, there is
a significant delay between the audio coming from the mobo sound to the local speakers and the sound out of the
TV set. In PCLinuxOS on the same machine, there is hardly any delay. It is thus painful to watch a movie or a Youtube performance with any kind of speech or singing on Windows, due to the lack of lip-sync.
I need to know of there is a fix for this, and if so, where do I find it, or can somebody please post it here?

Thanx for your assistance--doug

A:mobo sound and HDMI sound not synced in Windows 8.1

You are using two separate "sound cards" (chips) at the same time (one in the Video Card and one on the motherboard). The processing in the chip can cause a delay or out of sync. Windows is designed to only have one default audio playback device. Circumventing that can cause problems, such as you hear.

So I've got a problem,I changed my case 2 days ago and everything went great,all working as it should be.Up until an hour ago,when the lid got stuck in one of the little clips so after a quick bang it went in.But then I lost my picture on both monitors.
So I went to investigate,I ended up moving the GPU over to the other 16x slot and it is now fine.
but since then I've lost all sound through either the front or rear jacks,It is saying that the speakers are not connected.I've done all the usual checks,as in default devises,drivers.Everything I can think of I have done.I have tried a new cable,and tested through both of my phones and the speakers work fine.I've also tried a few sets of headphones in both jacks.There is a faint hiss sound when I turn the speakers on,that has just started.
I have managed to get sound through my tv via HDMI,but every time,I go into audio manager and lets say change from soft to hard,I loose the sound again,and have to set the HDMI as default again.this too has just started.
I'm using the on board realtek audio sound card ,on an Asus p8z77-lx motherboard.
Just a quick note when I plug in the jack,there is no beep and the pop up screen does not appear as normal.

Yesterday I installed a new external hard drive - following the installation - my sound no longer played through my television (video is fine, HDMI connection) and sound now comes ONLY through the laptop speakers.

The option for HDMI Audio doesn't appear in the 'sound' menus. I have 'checked' "shoe disabled" and "show disconnected" in those menus.
Basic Specs:


Windows 7/64bit

IDT High Definition Audio Codec

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250
AMD M880G with ATI Mobility Radeon 4250

I have tried the following fixes gleaned from other forum posts on similar forum posts:

Uninstalling and reinstalling IDT drivers - didn't work.

HP driver 'recovery manager' to install 'original' IDT audio codecs - didn't work.

Unistalled ATI Video Drivers , and reinstalled them - didn't work

System Restore to a week ago - didn't work.

I use my HD TV as my primary monitor for gaming, so having sound through laptop speakers and not TV is quite annoying.

Perhaps my only solution is another sound card?

A:no sound through tv via hdmi, sound plays through laptop speakers (idt

So you're trying to get audio to play on your TV from your laptop? Since you said the video is fine it's obviously not the video drivers. It sounds like the sound output is configured wrong. I don't think it would be labeled as HDMI. HDMI is just DVI with HD Audio. Try altering your sound settings to see what you can get.

Audio is a very difficult thing to diagnose and fix.

Hello, I have just registered and I have a problem that, hopefully, some of you can help me with. I purchased my system, a HP Pavilion a6652uk with Vista Home Premium in February this year and up till now it has been working alright. The speakers, Logitech X240, are connected via HDMI. I logged on on Sunday and the speakers were not working. I clicked on playback devices and it showed the hdmi as being unplugged. Not being an expert, the only thing I could think of was a system restore. This solved the problem and I had sound. I took the system out of hibernation this morning and had exactly the same symptoms, no sound and again showing hdmi output as being unplugged. I do not want to be continually restoring so any help would be appreciated, not too technical, as my computing knowledge is limited. I shall be looking forward to some advice. Thank you. Andy.

Do you mean there is no sound on the TV? or that there is no sound on PC speakers after connecting the HDMI cable?

On most systems, if an HDMI cable is connected Windows will automatically switch the default audio playback device from the "Speakers" (PC sound) to HDMI. If you want PC sound with HDMI connected you must manually switch it back.

If your problem is no PC sound on the TV, first make sure HDMI was set as the default audio playback device. Second, HDMI sound is usually generated in the video card (I couldn't find out if that is the way this card works but if it is make sure the HDMI audio (video drivers) are installed and that that there is no error in the Device Manager). On some older video cards, you must supply S/PDIF audio from the PC to the Video card.

A:no sound on hdmi

Hi fretworker,

I'm assuming your Dell Studio has Intel GMA 4500M graphics? Please correct me if not.

By going into Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Sound, you will hopefully see the HDMI out uses a separate driver called something like "High Definition Audio Device" which is not listed on When you updated drivers, there's a good chance you missed this one (through no fault of your own).

1. Right-click on the HDMI output, select Properties, and make sure the device is enabled.

2. If it is, click Properties in the Controller Information area, switch to the Driver tab, and try to Update Driver.

3. If it's greyed out, go to Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Device Manager. Expand 'Sound, video and game controllers', right-click "High Definition Audio Device" and select Update Driver Software. If it needs updating, update and report back here.

Let me know how everything goes...

First, let me say that I did some research on this forum and did not find any posts with my exact situation.

My problem: I have my computer hooked up to my LCD 46" Sony Bravia TV with a DVI-HDMI connection and am getting no sound.

I am aware that DVI does not push sound through. And I have no drivers that need to be updated.There are two audio connections underneath my HDMI connection on the back of my tv. I have those currently plugged in and connected to the back of my computer in the green audio jack and am still not getting any sound.

Also, everytime I plug in the audio jack on the back of my pc, realtek pops open and I think I'm selecting all the right options...

Please help! Am I doing something wrong? How can I fix this? I don't want to buy speakers; I really want the sound to come from my tv.

You do not have the correct Intel video drivers. The correct Intel video drivers will install the Intel HDMI audio. You show "High Definition Audio Device" which is the Windows installed generic, basic function driver and that is probably your problem.

Morning all,

Right i picked up a pc that needed some tlc, tried installing windows 8 and get the error so installed windows 7.

Quick breakdown:

motherboard - k7s41
cpu - amd seprom 2400+
graphics card - powercolor x1950 pro agp 256mb

Had a few problems installing the video card - but after going into bios and changing agp to 4x instead of 8x it now works great - full hd display using a dvi - hdmi 1.4v lead

Now my problem is I cant get any sound, having read and read i now know there is sound output through DVI (19 pins video / 5 pins sound)

My question is how do i enable the sound through my x1950 pro

I have tried installing the realtek hd audio drivers but it just comes back no driver installed.

tried upgrading ccc to latest version still no help.

I have tried the phone jack at the back into stereo jack in tv but no sound (does the hdmi have to be into port 1 on tv or should that not matter)

Or am i just wasting my time and it is impossible to get the sound through my hdmi.

Any help would be greatfully appreciated.

A:Getting sound through DVI - HDMI

Is your Windows 7 32 or 64bit?
Your system seems to be very old. The motherboard seems to date from 2004. It looks to have been designed with Windows 98 or 2000 in mind so the chances of running Win 7 in any meaningful way is not really an option IMHO!

Hi, and thanks in advance

I just bought a new HDMI cable and plugged it into my Bravia?.
I've got a Lenovo Y560 and I just can't get my music to play through the TV.

A:No Sound in HDMI

There is NO HDMI audio listed in the snapshot you show. You will need HDMI audio enabled (if you have it). In the Sound Playback panel, RIGHT click in an empty area and then LEFT click Show Disabled and Disconnected devices. If the HDMI is now shown you can select it as the default playback device.

If it is not shown, and the PC is supposed to have it, update the Video driver.

You usually need a HDMI driver to send the sound to the TV. The cable alone is not enough.

What make and model is your laptop? Unless you fill out your system specs it is more or less impossible to help you.

I just added a MSI R4650 video card into my MSI motherboard so that I can connect my PC to my Onkyo receiver via HDMI.

So I tried to discover as much as I could with all the forums that had the same issue that I am having posted but so far no luck.

I put Windows 7 on my Wife's Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop and now the sound will not work through the HDMI output. When I had vista on it it recognized the TV and had no problems playing both Video and sound, but now only video plays.

I tweaked with settings on the TV and in Windows sound options. I set the HDMI as the default output but no luck. I clicked on the button in the sound properties to upgrade the drivers and it told me that I had the most up to date drivers.

Maybe there is another known issue with Windows 7 and the HDMI that I could not find any literature on a solution for it.

Thank you for your time.

I brought my partner an hdmi cable. Both his TV's have hdmi slots. Using his computer, we can only get picture on either TV, but using my computer we get both audio and video playing through the TV's. I want it to be able to run through his computer as I am only here in the weekends. I do however have the next 10 days at his place to sort out this issue, then its back to weekends only. At the moment to watch a movie on the tv from the computer, with hdmi, we are having to use pc sound.

His pc details are:
hp pavilion a6760a
win 7 home premium
geforce 9300ge driver ver. 301.42

I have tried ... updated the video card drivers, updating hdmi driver, changing video cards (which resulted in his computer not even registering there was an hdmi slot)
and yes before any one suggests is I have made sure the audio settings are set to hdmi. Like I said I got it to work fine off my comp just not his.

The cable clearly works as we have used it in my computer as well as with the ps3.
Any and all help gladly welcome.

A:no sound through hdmi

I know you said you checked it, but IF the HDMI audio chipset is set as the default audio output, all audio should be using the HDMI port.

So if it's not working, HDMI is not set as the default, there is a driver issue, or there is a hardware issue.

As you reference swapping video cards, I'll assume this is a desktop PC. In which case the HDMI audio drivers are part of the video driver package. Check the device status in Device Manager. You should also see two audio chisets, the onboard audio chipset or sound card and the HDMI HD audio chipset.

Hi there, I have recently acquired a gaming PC which has been built up from scratch by a local in my area who has good reputation for reliability etc. Most things are working fine, however I cannot seem to get the sound working through my television, which is my main (and only) monitor. The TV/Monitor is plugged into the PC through a DVI/HDMI adapter since the PC does not come with a HDMI slot. Visually, the TV is recognized instantly as '1.32 LCD_TV' in control panel - display, so the PC knows it is there. However, right clicking sound in the bottom right of the desktop and going to playback devices, there is only Speakers, Headphones and Digital Audio. The PC is not picking up the TV as an option for sound to come out of and that has baffled me. Most of the solutions previously to this problem are to go to playback devices and simply switch, but I can't since the option is not there for me, almost like the TV isn't connected at all.

I went on device manager and tried to update all related rivers but they are all apparently up to date. Furthermore there are no important updates available and the machine is completely up to date. Adobe and Java are installed.

I would like to upgrade my Intel X48 based (MSI X48C Platinum) machine to allow HDMI signal including sound to an HD TV. I have looked on Newegg at HDMI video cards, and while there are several pages of them, I do not seem to be able to resolve the sound issue. In looking at the port configuration on the cards, I do not see any provisions for a "sound in" receptacle. Do HDMI video cards automatically process sound? My inclination is to believe they do not. Can someone point me to some PCIE X16 cards that provide an audio signal via the HDMI?

Ok I don't have any sound coming through my HDMI

I have the SPDIF hooked up from the mobo to one of my two graphics cards.

I have 2 Asus Nvidia 9800GT

The HDMI is going to a 46" Samsung 750

Technically I have the HDMI and SPDIF set up through the card that is in PCIx16 #2

Does it have to be hooked up through PCI #1?

Suggestions on how to get this to work?


A:No sound through HDMI?

HDMI has its own sound on most if not all video cards.
That is what I have read at least.
SPDIF would go direct to the TV wouldn't it?
TV and moboard manual might or should tell you how to set it up.

HDMI on my Asus you run it straight to TV or monitor with speakers.
I haven't tried it but my video card instructions say to do it that way.
It has its own Nvidia sound card built in.

Hope that helps and sorry if it doesn't.

A few days ago, I plugged a HDMI cable into my new laptop and watched a few videos on my HDTV. No problems whatsoever. Since then though, every time I plug in the HDMI cable, the video comes through just fine, but there's no sound. I've found several threads with similar problems, both here and on other sites, but nothing I've found and tried has worked.

Some more details:

Laptop is a HP Pavilion DV6-3141ea
Graphics card ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 (Most threads say it's something to do with the graphics but I've still not managed to fix it)

I've updated the drivers for both the graphics card and the sound card (IDT High Definition Audio CODEC). When I plug in the HDMI, nothing changes in my sound settings - the only choices I have are Speakers and Headphones, Independent Headphones, and Speakers (Bluetooth Hands-free Audio). There's no HDMI option or SP/DIF or anything appearing once I plug in the HDMI. I've checked for disconnected and disabled devices too, and it still doesn't show up.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated - I get the distinct feeling this is one of those things that's been staring me in the face the whole time ><'

A:No sound through HDMI

If the HDMI is not listed in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Sound Panel playback section. RIGHT click in a blank area in that panel and select show disabled and disconnected devices. If it then displays the HDMI you can then select it as default playback device and you should get HDMI audio. But, if it still does not display that USUALLY indicates a problem with the Video drivers.

You have to have the HDMI in the Sound Panel's Playback section so it can be set as the default audio playback device. The first step is to reinstall the Video drivers. Windows 7 uses the same driver as Vista, if Gateway and or the Video manufacturer does not have a Windows 7 driver, use the Vista driver.

Hi everyone,
I just bought a brand new Philips TV and wanted to watch my first movie from my Vaio VGN-Z11VRN, however I had only picture with no sound on the TV.

I connect using HDMI. Have so say that the TV is ok, since it is working with dvd just fine using the same cable. Also, I've been connecting my laptop many times with my previous tv with no problem at all.

In sound option, when I connect hdmi, the device selected is actually HDMI one...and I can see the equalizer moving.

Can't understand where the problem is. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate. All the drivers used are from sony official site.

I've seen on this forum that many users actually have problem tv sony and philips tvs, and one of them solved the issue by upgrading the nvidia drivers. However, I have the last drivers (from sony site) and the drivers on the nvidia site do not support sony laptops.

I've also updated to latest drivers of realtek with no result

Tried to used different HDMI ports of the tv, different players on the laptop (using variety of settings).... still nothing

I will really appreciate any help!!!

Now my problem is that I am usind a 32" Slyvania brand Flatscreen LCD TV as my Main Monitor, running this through an HDMI cable. The TV itself doesn't have a Mini-Stereo jack type input for sound, so I am trying to get the sound to run through my HDMI port and cable. The Sound Card specifications state that sound is available through the port, and comes with a guide on how to do it. It has a 4-pin to two-pin SPDIF cable that plugs into the Graphics Card, the problem is the SPDIF on my motherboard isn't the 4-pin needed. it is only a 3-pin. After talking to the Customer Support on both the computer and the Graphics card and with GeekSquad, I was told I need to buy a sound card. hence the sound card in my configuration. I am still having problems getting sound to my TV, basically, I have never heard any sound come out of it. ^_^ Any Ideas?

A:Sound through HDMI

The three pin SPDIF connector, is it a configuration like this?

0 0 X 0

Where the 0 spots are pins, and the X marks an empty pin?

If so, check the wires on your four pin cable. Most of them have one of the four wire slots empty. That means there's no wire in it. If the cable is like that, line the connector up with the pin header on your motherboard so that the empty pin slot lines up with the missing pin, and the wires line up with the pins that are there.

It's easier to make a connector like that with one wire unpopulated for keying, rather than three separate little wires that the end user can plug in wrong.

Let us know if that works.

Not that i OFFICIALLY know of, or have tested myself, but as long as you have either a soundcard and onboard sound, or sound card and hdmi graphics card or hdmi graphics card and onboard sound, then try it.

the only thing is that vista usually uses only the default sound device, but sometimes other devices can pick up the system's sound. either way, it wont hurt anything on your computer.

Hi, for the first time ever I'm trying to connect my laptop to my TV via a HDMI cable, everything works fine apart from the sound, it's being played via the laptop for some reason.

I went on the sound options on device manager, the "Digital Audio (HDMI)" option says "not plugged in" therefore I can't enable it to play it through the TV. I've also tried to change the projection to "projector only", no luck.

I went onto "device manager" every one of my drivers seem updated, apart from a single one which I don't even think is currently downloaded. I try to use the "update" button however it can't find the driver online. I don't know which driver it is therefore I can't download it manually either.

My laptop is a "HP Pavilion g6" and TV is a Philip, not sure of the exact model however. I've left some screenshots below to help you geniuses with assisting me!

Also is the source 5.1/surround or stereo only? If it is stereo then an upmix somewhere along the line is required to get surround sound.

Second, can you install the ATI4650 in the new PC, and try that. That would isolate what/where the problem is.

The HDMI portion of your graphics drivers take over sound control when HDMI is used as an output for audio. Consider updating your graphics drivers to the latest 11.4 version (released today) from ATI Radeon.

A:No Sound Playing Through Hdmi

You may want to check your TV and make sure the Audio Input is set to HDMI for whatever input you're using.

May or may not be the issue. I know it is a major problem I run into when I'm doing home theater installations. Some TVs default to Optical interface for HDMI inputs which doesn't make sense to me since you have the high-bandwidth interface of HDMI available.

Nevertheless, check under the menu on your TV or test by using a DVD player or other source to input both video and audio into the HDMI interface.

When installing, when the option comes up select Custom instead of Express to make sure that the HDMI Audio driver is getting installed. Next open the Windows audio playback properties and if it isn't set the ATI HDMI audio as the default playback device. That should get the audio working.

Ok, when I connect my HP DV6 laptop to my Samsung TV the picture works fine but the sound comes through on the laptop only, not the TV.

The problem is that I don't seem to have the driver for HDMI audio output, see the below picture:

Now, a friend came over today and he has a Dell laptop with EXACTLY the same graphics card (ATI HD 4570), he used the HDMI cable with my TV and the sound comes through fine.

I looked at his playback devices and he had an extra sound driver called "ATI High Definition Audio Device". I do not have such device. I do not have this device after downloading and installing the same "Catalyst Control Center" again and again and again and again. I am tired of seeing this damn control center as it never installs the driver I need.

I just need one, one measley driver to have sound and ATI has completely failed me at this, their control centre regularly crashes when I try and install it and my display sometimes crashes too.

A:No sound with HDMI connection.

Where are you downloading the ATI driver from? The ATI website or the HP website?

I have a HP DV6, but it has a Intel card instead and the HDMI sound device lists+works fine. You should get all the updated drivers for your DV6 model from the HP website if you haven't done so already. With that aside, have you checked the 'Sound, video and game controllers' in the device manager? Do you see or not see a 'HD Audio HDMI' listed there? If it's listed, does it have a yellow warning symbol against it?

Did you check the IDT HD sound control panel? (it's in the task bar, my DV6 has that) to see if it mentions your HDMI int. and its settings?

It seems ever since I installed the drivers for the external sound card,
I am unable to receive sound through my notebook's HDMI output.

Hi, i am planning on buying a system with a built in ATI Radeon HD graphics card, 8gb of ram, 2TB hard disk, built in sound card, and an AMD Phenom Quad core processor 3.4GHz.

I know that the graphics card supports HDMI so i am planning on connecting it to my TV. So instead of having a monitor i will be connecting it to my TV via a HDMI lead.

I also have a USB logitech speaker i plan on using.

Now, here is my question, i know that HDMI sends sound as well as Video to the TV. But i would like to be able to use both speakers simultaneously. Would windows 7 ultimate x64 do this automatically for me, if not how would i do this?


All help is appreciated.

A:HDMI and sound question

sean, your question is a bit hard to understand, do you mean to use both speakers that they will both transmit the same audio at he same time ? or they would be transmitting different audio tracks ?

If the same audio track at the same time then unfortunately wont be able to do so because windows will configure them as separate channels and you wont be able to bind them together. If you wish to use them to output different media you can simply use to softwares such as media play and vlc player and configure vlc to use the wireless while media player uses the hdmi, if you want to use both speakers as in sometimes use the tv and sometimes the wireless you can switch between them using the windows sound configuration settings at the control panel or at the start bar near the clock

best of luck

I have my PC(Win 7 x64) plugged into my HDTV via HDMI cable through my GTS 450 video card. I can't always use my TV speakers(ie, late night gaming). Figured I'd just plug my headset to my tower, but that doesn't work. When I right click on the volume in the task bar and click playback devices, the headphones show up as "Not plugged in". This goes for my mic as well.

How can I go about switching from the integrated audio on my video card to my on board sound?

Edit: Was cruising around the internets before posting here. A common answer seems to be to change the audio setting in my BIOS from "Auto" to "Enabled". Doesn't seem to be my problem as I only have "Enabled" and "Disabled"

Also, when I check my "Sound, video, and game controllers" in device manager, it has 4 listings for "NVIDIA High Definition Audio". Dunno if that changes anything or not however.

A:GTS 450 HDMI and onboard sound

You have to change the default playback device in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound panel. You can't have both the HDMI audio and the regular PC's audio - you can only have one default playback device. When you want to use the regular PC sound card you have to select that, when you want to use HDMI you select that.

I have a GTS450 video card.

Hello this is my first post!

I have a HP Compaq 2230s laptop and it has a HDMI port. I use a High-Speed HDMI cable to connect it to my LG 3D Smart TV. I finds the video but it does not get the audio (partially).

Once I connected, I tested for sound using the volume mixer and the "ding" is played on my TV. But when I try to play a song from my laptop, it is coming from my laptop speakers!

How can I fix this? It's very annoying.

Thank you!!!

A:Laptop to Tv using HDMI No Sound?

Right click on the volume icon in the Notification area and select 'Playback devices.' On the Playback tab select the HDMI and set it as default and make sure the Properties and Configuration are OK.

That worked on my newer HP laptop. On my older one I think the sound works on HDMI only with Windows Media Center. Or maybe that was only with Vista and I should try again now that I am running Windows 7 on it.

I just bought a Viewsonic monitor with 1080 HD and although the video is excellent but the sound is awful. It appears as though the HDMI is taking ownership of the sound and transmitting it to the rinky dink speakers embedded in the monitor. I would like to use the regular desktop speakers I have always used that worked well but as long as the HDMI is plugged in they do not work. When I changed the connection to the monitor to VGA, the speakers work again but I lose the HD quality on the video. Is there anyway to use the old speakers for sound and HDMI for video. I surely hope there is or else I will feel as though I have lost my money on this monitor!

Thank you in advanced!

A:Splitting the sound from HDMI

keredd, welcome to the Seven Forums.

I guessing from your specs that you are using the onboard video, seeing as you didn't list a video card. If that is the case (or it is an AMD card), the onboard video has its own audio built in for audio over HDMI in addition to the regular onboard audio. When you open the Windows playback properties does it look something like this,

In your case it should show the same ATI HDMI audio as well as the Realtek onboard. If it isn't showing the Realtek then that would be why you can't select your speakers when the HDMI is connected, and you need to install the driver for it. You can find the latest Realtek driver here,

Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version

Once installed then it is just a matter of setting it as the default playback device.

I have my laptop connected to my TV via HDMI. The video works but the sound plays through the laptop speakers. This sound worked yesterday and for the last year or so but for some reason it stopped working today. When I go into my playback devices I only have two listed (Speakers and Headphones, Independent Headphones) and no more devices pop up when I right-click and check "show disabled devices." The only thing that I can think of that may have changed any settings is that I downloaded an AC3 codec. I have since uninstalled it. I have also tried a system restore to no avail. Does anyone know anything else that I could try to correct this issue?

To get optimal music playback quality, I have connected an external USB DAC to my laptop, DELL XPS 16 running Windows 7 64 bit. From the DAC an analogue signal in to my HiFi amplifier. I have also connected my plasma screen with HDMI through my home movie amplifier.

When playing music with "Music Player" and ASIO4ALL I want the sound to go to the USB DAC but when I see a movie I want the sound to go to my home movie amplifier through the HDMI connection. How to I achieve this. It seems that I have to choose one or the other but I want both, preferably without having to do any reconfiguration in-between but if that doesn't work with as little as possible of tweaking in-between.

Hopefully someone knows this. I would be greatful.

The audio over HDMI works perfectly to the old TV and nothing else on the system has change. The xbox, also connected to the new TV works fine. I have tried the HDMI cable from the xbox with the tv and tried it on both hdmi ports on the tv with the same result, great picture no sound.

Anyone else had this problem? Can anyone give me advice on how to solve it?

Is there any keyboard key or combination which will mute HDMI sound?

I have a Radeon 5670 video card which connects to an HD TV through HDMI.
Sound works fine except I cannot adjust the sound level or mute the system
sound without navigating through several layers of graphic, mouse activated
selections. Since my card is an ATI, I do have Catalyst Control Center with
hotykey functions but they do not include a muting capability for HDMI.

I can mute and adjust sound level to the TV using the remote, but that requires
grabbing another piece of hardware which always seems to be just out of reach.
Since nVidia has the capability to mute HDMI sound, I figure ATI must have some
way to do it also.

Any help appreciated!

A:Muting HDMI Sound

Hello Rhinse,

You should be able to adjust your volume and mute it by clicking on the mute button from the Volume icon in the taskbar notification area.
Other than your remote, some keyboards will have a mute button on them.

my computer is connected to my surround sound box then to the TV. But windows only lets you choose 2 ch stero output via the HDMI. The only explaination i could come up for this is that windows detects my TV having only two speakers and doesn't detect my surround sound having 7.1 speaker set up....? how can you force win 7 to output 7.1 via HDMI????

A:HDMI surround sound

Windows is not "detecting" your TV - it doesn't know or care what is connected. However, many systems only output two channel stereo via the HDMI and it's up to the TV or surround audio system to provide the surround sound. This is also true of the S/PDIF output on many systems.

Just got a new monitor today, Samsung S24D300HL which I have plugged into my Nvidia Geforce GTX 745 video card via HDMI.

Picture is great no problems there. However I have no sound at all. I've updated my graphics driver via Nvidia Experience program version 361.43 I've right clicked and went to Nvidia control panel audio tab and my monitor was listed there as audio under HDMI still no sound. I've restarted the computer a couple times. Checked Windows update. Switch to a different HDMI cord and still no sound. I've right clicked the speaker in the taskbar and went to playback and what I have is. Nvidia HDMI Output (Port 0) and Nvidia HDMI Output (Port 1) both say not plugged in. I'm confused about the Port 0 and Port 1 because there is only one HDMI spot on the back of the card.

I have a GTX570 which I use to connect my PC to my TV via HDMI. For two years or so everything has been fine until I recently returned from holiday and the picture still works but there is no sound. I have googled the problem and the usual answer is to set the TV as default in audio properties. I had already done this and it is set as default (shows full name of TV).

When I click test the green bar goes up and down to show sound is being played but it just doesn't come through the TV. Another solution I have found is putting a cable between the sound card and the graphics card through SPDIF but this doesn't seem to be required as it has always worked without this.

Please can you help I am pulling my hair out.

A:No sound through HDMI, already set to default

Your problem is likely more complicated than mine, but the half dozen or so times this has happened to me the fix has been to remove and replug the HDMI cable (computer end) or to restart the computer.

Hey all,

I have a problem with the HDMI output on my laptop. I've tried to research the problem and for the most part the answer is to set the default playback device to the HDMI output. I do this, and even when I click the 'Test' button, the bell rings through the speakers of the TV, along with other system noises like error popups. However, when I try to watch movies or listen to music there is no sound from the TV. I can even be playing a song, press the 'Test' button, and it rings just fine.... but no music. It's making me and I need some help!

I recently installed my new HD Radeon 7950 Graphics card (which was traded in for my 5850). Since then I have been having problems getting sound to work through my TV's HDMI. I have read the forums to find an answer and I've tried several things to get it working.

1) Updated Graphics card drivers
2) Uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for both my 7950 and 4850 graphics cards
3) Rolled back the drivers for the 7850
4) Changed the HDMI cable's slot in the TV (HDMI 1 is where is worked with my 5850 but I tried other slots just in case)
5) Pressed Windows+P button to change to "Projector Only", followed by Windows+P again "Extend" (this use to work since AMD would not keep my TV as the default audio device when it was plugged in)

I also find it very strange that I have 6 different (yes I said 6) AMD Digital Audio Displays in my playback options (see image below). Notice that the 2nd image is just scrolled down from the first so you can see all the options

Does anyone else have any other ideas?

Don`t change it to different ports on the tv, just use hdmi 1 and keep working at it.

I have just upgraded from vista to windows 7 home premium.
On vista, I could watch downloaded programs and movies on my LCD TV through a hdmi lead. I just plugged it in and it worked, with the sound coming through the TV and the stereo speakers ( which are connected to the tv).

Now, I only get sound through the laptop, and not through the TV. I have tried a new hdmi cable, I have checked all the settings for sound and it says all are working fine. I have tried updating the drivers, which are all up to date. Nothing seems to work. I can put up with watching programs with the sound from the laptop, but I have found that even with the speakers on 100%, they are not as loud as when the OS was vista.

Does anyone have any ideas?

A:no sound through hdmi connection

On many PC's you have to set the HDMI as the "default playback" device in order to get audio in the HDMI output. I don't know if that is the case with yours but something to consider. The Sound Panel, where you would set this, is in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Sound. In my desktop the HDMI output is listed as the "ATI High Definition Audio Device".
