Q: HP Envy dv7 - No Audio When Connected to TV by HDMI Cable; W...

I know this is one that has been floating around the forums for a while but I have not been able to find anything that works in my situation. When I connect my laptop to my TV (Panasonic Viera Plasma) via an HDMI cable, I can get the video to show on the TV fine but there is no audio on the TV; it comes out of the laptop. I have tried everything I can think of including deleting the drivers then reinstalling them, updating them, rolling them back, etc., etc., etc. Here are the specs on my laptop:HP ENVY dv7 Notebook PCWindows 8.1 64-bit, 8GB RAMIntel(R) Core(TM) i5-3230M CPU @ 2.60GHzIntel(R) HD Graphics 4000Intel(R) Display Audio (with Beats Audio)IDT High Definition Audio CODEC Also, here is a snapshot of the Playback Devices: As you can see, I have nothing which says "HDMI". I have gotten quite frustrated with not being able to get this to work. I would appreciate any help I can get. Thank you. Alex...

Hello quick question so i'm clear and to see what you would suggest.

I have a new upgrade LG 55 inch 4k TV connected to my PC via HDMI to GTX970 I've read this TV supports audio also via the same HDMI cable plugged in to my video card. I'm a huge gamer.

Right now I have a X-Fi Xtreme Gamer sound card connected to a 4.1 Logitech setup w/sub. I've been using this for years and it works great for surround sound when available and EAX is always a plus SO whats my benefit to 86 the 4.1 and just go HDMI?

In that case I lose the 4 speaker setup correct and just use audio from the TV?? I can't see the advantage for this unless i'm missing something big. I don't use SPDIF output or the Dolby digital or DTS encoder from the card I assume all that you need a receiver.

Can I use HDMI output for audio and STILL use my 4.1 speakers? I don't want to invest in a receiver or anything like that at this point. What would you do if you were me? i'm at work now but I read if I go into the sound properties/playback devices I can choose HDMI output? I'm curious to see how that works.


A:HDMI cable for audio or keep my 4.1 w/soundcard? need help w/HDMI

Windows only allows one default audio playback device. e.g. HDMI or Speakers (your sound card). HDMI audio is generated on a sound chip in the Video card. You don't have all the options you do with a Sound card.

Hello, I just bought an HDMI cable to connect from my HP Pavilion x360 onto my TV. Unfortunately, I only get video on my TV but no audio. The audio only comes from my Pavilion x360. I am aware of right clicking the volume icon and clicking on "playback devices" to set defult the HDMI cable or TV. Unfortunaly, this is not visible even after enabling the disconnected and disabled devices. Please, anyone help so I can get the audio on my TV as well? I've let a screenshot. As a reminder, my HDMI is connected on both sides, and I have both disconnected and disabled devices visible. Thank you!

Hey guys, I'm actually new here, so I am not sure if this is in the right forum page, but I need help. I have had a problem with my HDTV and laptop for a few months and finally decided to start a thread for help. The problem is that the HDTV is blurry and fuzzy when connected to my laptop via HDMI. However, I realize this is an overscanning issue, because in the AMD Catalyst Control Center, whenever I set the scaling for overscanning to 0%, the fuzzy text and screen is fixed, but the edges around the screen like the taskbar are cutoff the edge of the screen. I do not think my TV has an option for "Just Scan", but maybe you guys can find something I can't. Here is the manual:

Also, I am running Windows 8.1 with an AMD Radeon HD 7520G graphics card.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

As the title says, I've tried connecting my TV to my computer with an HDMI cable, and the video part works, but no sound plays. When I checked the list of playback devices, the TV appeared (as shown below), but it apparently cannot play sound.

I don't think I know anything beyond what I've posted, but if anyone could help me out with this, I would appreciate it.

Also, as a side note - I am completely unable to interact with any of these objects - I cannot set something as a default device; there is no response when I do it, and disabling the audio device only works until current sources of sound (like videos) are restarted.

I have an Acer Aspire laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

I regularly connect it to my TV monitor via HDMI cable and fall asleep watching movies (played on VLC or Windows Media Player).

I set the computer to go to sleep after 1 hour.

Multimedia Settings are set to "Allow computer to sleep" under "When Sharing Media" in the Power Management section.

Screensaver is disabled.

I have overrided my audio driver, since powercfg command suggested it may be a conflict.

If I am playing a movie without the HDMI cable plugged in, the computer goes into sleep mode right on schedule. It is only when I have the HDMI cable plugged into my TV monitor, that it refuses to enter sleep mode.

What could be causing this problem? Makes no sense to me.

This is frustrating because I want to watch movies on my TV through my laptop and get the feel of some surround sound through the HiFi speakers but it is not working!!!!

Please Help!

The problem is not your PC but your TV and how it handles HDMI audio. There is nothing we can do for this, it is strictly an issue with your TV and how it routes audio internally (or to external devices).

Windows 10 plays Mp3 Files just fine. Connect an HDMI cable to the video output port, and then windows 10 suddenly wont play those files.

Okay, so over the holidays I received a brand new Hisense television and I was watching movies and tv shows on my laptop on the big screen through an HDMI cable for a few weeks. Before that I was doing the same thing with the big screen in our living room for months. I got up one day and wanted to plug it in but I kept getting a message saying no signal. I had had it plugged in the night before and it worked just fine. Yes, I checked to make sure it was on the right setting, HDMI 1. I also tried plugging it in the other HDMI slots on the tv and it didn't work in those either. It is doing the same thing to our tv in the living room and it just doesn't make any sense. The only thing I can think of is that my computer has some kind of driver that just needs to be updated or something but I have no idea which one. HELP PLEASE!

Whenever I connect my laptop to the TV via hdmi cable my desktop icons are moved and auto aligned in vertical columns down the left hand side of the page (my desktop). I have to drag them back to where I want each time. It's a fairly minor nuisance, but is there any way to avoid this, I've searched but can't find a definitive answer.

(I've tried, right clicking and unchecking 'align icons to grid' but that doesn't make any difference, it still always happens)

I believe this is an issue with the change in resolution that is likely occurring when you connect the HDMI cable. If you can set the HDMI output to the same as the screen, then the icons should stay where you left them.
I had the same issue with icon location changes when another user signed into the PC and then signed in. My icons rearranged. After a lot of trial and error I found that if I set the resolution, scaling, etc. options in both profiles to the default values, the issue vanished. I don't think Windows 10 knows how to deal with resolution changes and desktop icon locations very well, although I vaguely recall experiencing this issue with prior Windows versions. I could not remember how I solved it then, but the resolution/scaling/etc. work around is acceptable.

Morning guys and girls!

------ On Cables:

I've been looking for a cable that takes DVI from a graphics card, as well as 3.5mm (or RCA, as I have an adapter) from the sound card, and converts it into a single HDMI plug for my TV.

I've been able to find cables for audio alone, or cables for DVI alone, but seeing as I want to both watch and hear my movies at the same time, they are useless, lol.

I thought the best way to find something that would do the job and do it properly (I've had experiences with low quality cables before) was to come and ask you Oh and I live in the UK, so I'd need something on sale here.

------ On Video Ghosting:

I'm currently using 10m VGA and RCA cables for my TV (the machine's quite far away, and can't be moved closer). The audio has only minor interference that isn't noticeable when I'm actually using it, but the video image has some pretty annoying ghosting.

I'm led to believe that the quality of the cable has plenty to do with this, though of course proximity to electronic equipment could be causing the whole thing. The nearby electronic equipment can not be moved, though.

So besides freeing up my RCA cable for other uses and providing a better resolution image, I want to replace the current setup with a HDMI cable to remove this ghosting.

Now here's where I get slightly confused! HDMI transfers digital video data not analog, thus the picture should remain perfect even with the amount... Read more

HW is a motherboard with HD3200 and ALC889A HD with latest drivers.

Using a HDMI cable i get HDMI audio out, but if i switch inputs on the receiver then back HDMI audio is "not plugged in".

changing resolution brings it back as default device.

Tested a backed up vista image with ati 9.04 and realtek hdmi 2.23 drivers and it worked fine changing inputs on the receiver.

The same drivers in win7 did not resolve the issue, so im guessing theres something in win 7 that causes this

A:win7 bug with HDMI audio connected to receiver

if you have an HDMI capable receiver I am going to assume you have at least a 5.1 setup correct? And I am also going to assume that "HW is a motherboard with HD3200" means onbaord HD3200?

If yes then I would suggest using either the coaxial output or optical S/PDIF output to the receiver as you are not reciveing 8 channel LPCM through HDMI.

As to your actual problem I am setup same as you, however I am not having that problem... is video still able to pass through to your TV even in the audio not plugged in state?

I've had my laptop for a while, and I've used my TV Screen as a secondary monitor a lot. A while ago my computer updated to windows 8.1 when I fell asleep on it and accidentally hit the update button when it came up (oops), making me have to use windows 8.1 now. Now I haven't had many problems with it, it works fine and dandy, but I do have a major problem when I try to use my second monitor. When I run a game or movie on it, the audio comes out from the laptop speakers, not the TV speakers. Previously, using windows 8, it would let me use both.

I know that if you go into the control panel and the sound systems that it should show two speakers, but for me it isn't. I've tried lots of different things and browsed the web for an answer, but I can't find anything.

According to your screen shot, you only have the PC audio (RealTek) and no HDMI audio. Reinstall the drivers for your video and see if that restores the HDMI audio.

No PC info posted, please fill in the "My System Specs". Helps us to try and help you.

I have both HDMI and PC audio on my Win 8.1 machines so it should work for you, if the PC is fully compatible.

I see on the forum that this has been a problem for a long time but I don't see where anyone has figured it out yet. If I missed something please enlighten me.

I built up a computer to use with my HDTV. A Gigabyte GA-E350N-USB3 MB loaded with W7x64. Audio and sound worked fine when it was being set up with a RGB cable and an audio lead from the green sound jack. When it was taken to the HDTV and connected with an HDMI cable there was no longer any audio at the was 'killer' but sound was dead as a doornail. Have spent hours fooling with it and hoping someone might have a solution while I rest my tired brain tonight!

It lists two audio drivers. 1) ATI High def audio and 2) Realtek High def audio. (Don't have any idea why it had two audio drivers-?) Both are operating properly. I suspected that maybe by having two audio drivers maybe there was a conflict so the Realtek was disabled as it showed no HDMI setting. The ATI is active and HDMI is selected presently, and no audio at the HDTV. The sound bar indicators in the computer ATI display indicates there is an audio signal there but the HDTV is not receiving it..
Any Ideas? Thanks in advance

A:HDMI Cable/Good video/No audio

First, you don't have to disable the RealTek. The ATI High Def is the correct audio for HDMI. In most cases when you connect the HDMI cable to the video card, Windows will automatically change the "default audio playback device" to HDMI (from "Speakers"). In a few cases that doesn't happen automatically and in those cases you must manually change the default playback device to the HDMI.

Connect the HDMI cable then check the default audio playback device in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound panel. If the HDMI is not set as the default device, make it the default device and then see if you have audio (this all assumes the TV's HDMI input is working correctly and the HDMI cable is good).

Problem started a little over a month ago on my HP laptop running Windows 7 64bit.

When I connect the laptop to my either of my TVs through an hdmi cord everything works fine. Videos run smoothly and the audio is in sync as if there's no problem.

If I try to watch a video on just the laptop though the problems start. If I try to play anything (songs/videos) in Windows Media Player then it says "Windows media player encountered a problem while playing this file".

When I play a video on YouTube the video runs smoothly but there isn't any audio to go with it.

If I go to control panel - sound - speakers and headphone properties and try to play a test sound it says 'failed to play test tone'

Attempted to update the IDT High Definition Audio CODEC driver but windows said it was up to date. Same thing with the Intel(R) Display Audio driver.

Thanks for any help

A:hp laptop audio and video problems (unless connected through hdmi)

Are you leaving the HDMI cable connected to the PC when you try to us the PC's sound (IDT)? Generally, when an HDMI cable is plugged in and detected the sound automatically switches from the "Speakers" (the IDT) to HDMI as the default audio playback device and thus no regular PC sound.

I usually connect my laptop to my tv to watch video files in VLC. Recently, I have been noticing when I connect my laptop to my TV and play these video files, the audio skips so much that the video is unwatchable. This happens with every video I try to open (mostly MKV and AVI files). However, when I play these video files without the computer connected to the TV, they work fine. Could the problem be my TV or my HDMI cable?

A:Playing video files causes audio to skip when connected to TV via HDMI

My lapotop is HP Pavilion 9750 running Windows 7 Enterprise (with the latest updates). When I'm inserting the HDMI cable to view my screen on the TV it automatically shows the video, but I have to manually change the default playback from "Speakers" (Realtek High Definition Audio) to "Realtek Digital Output" (Realtek High Definition Audio) so I could hear the audio from my TV and not from the computer.

Is there a way to make that switch automatically when I connect/disconnect the HDMI cable?


A:How to automatically change audio device when inserting HDMI cable?

Apparently the video card you have does not have on-board audio (chip) and must get the audio for HDMI from the S/PDIF (Digital) connection on the motherboard. This type of operation, in cases I've dealt with, will not autiomatically switch the audio playback device.

On newer video cards with the HDMI audio built on the video card, this type in most cases will automatically switch the audio playback.

Sounds simple enough... but can't seem to resolve this one. I have a new Dell XPS 630i. I successfully installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64, updated all drivers, installed 6GB of RAM and everything is working well. However, on boot up, I receive an error message "Audio Cable Not Connected". I have been inside the case a couple of times and checked every connector possible, including the 4pin connector from the Sound Blaster card to the mother board, and checked for any loose wires, (back of disc drives/video card etc.) but no luck. This boot up error msg started right after windows went out and updated all the drivers, and the error was not there before that. My default audio device is the Sound Blaster card and the other audio devices are disabled. I have visited the BIOS setup and the default audio is set to the Sound Blaster card too. The audio out works perfectly. Thanks in advance - hope this isn't too easy, or I'll look pretty dumb!!

I am fairly new with W7 so please excuse my inexperience with this.

I have headphones connected to front headphone jack (Dell Inspiron 560 W7 Home 64). I want to have cable connected to rear jack (for speakers in other room). I can't get audio from the rear if anything is connected to the front jack. I do get about one second with the rear pink jack and the yellow jack - but not the green jack - but after one second it stops.

The sound card is RealTek High Definition Audio, driver from 10/09 Vers

Note that when making a similar connection to my XP machine the RealTek card/jacks do play in both front and rear at the same time.

I have attached screenshots of the Control Panel ->RealTek image (annotated with mouseover text) and the Volume->Properties image.

A:Can't get Rear Audio jacks to work While cable connected to front jack

I do a lot of support on the Dell users forum. Dell uses a custom implementation of the RealTek audio, only the Dell RealTek audio drivers will work or work properly. Some models of the RealTek audio chip have the capability to do what you want and some do not, on others it's up to the PC/Motherboard vendor whether to implement certain functions or not. It may be possible but I don't recall seeing any posts on the Dell forum about this particular item.

Usually, the default setup is to mute the rear connected speakers when a headphone (or whatever) is plugged into the front headphone jack.

Here is the Dell on-line manuals for the 560/570 models

Brilliant little device for passing HDMI (less HDCP !!) plus RCA L, R Audio and 5.1 Optical Audio (SPDIF). Switchable audio pass thru,, 2Ch, 5.1 ch.
(Max HDMI input is 1080p so won't work for your 4K huge TV's though) - still an excellent little device for those who want to record from HDMI video.

(IMO the cheap ones are better than the expensive boxes as the expensive boxes don't strip HDCP from the HDMI output making some content not re-cordable with video capture devices or even software such as Audials).

Hey everyone,

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 (Build 7100) from Vista (32 bit) and am having trouble getting audio from my HDMI out port.

I am using the Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset and have upgraded to the latest available driver but still no luck.

I have attached a screen shot of my device manager and my sound devices with the HDMI plugged in - there is no option to select the HDMI as an audio device.

Any ideas?

Appreciate any help!


A:Windows 7 - HDMI out no audio - Intel HDMI audio

Try to set the SPDIF as the default audio device. That might work.

If it doesn't, try updating audio driver.

At last, as you said, your GPU driver is the last one, still, the problem might be right there. Usually, when the device manager shows the HDMI audio as functional and it still doesn't work, it's probably a GPU driver issue.

Try switching your GPU driver to older but stable versions.

On my case, nVidia drivers area always a pain in the *ss, so, when I successfully find a good and stable driver I stick with it for a long long time.

I'm trying to hook up my TV with my computer, and for the most part it's working. The video goes through and I get how to control it and everything. The only thing not working is the sound.

I'm using an HDMI to HDMI cable, and like I said the video is fine. Also, when the cable is plugged into my boyfriend's laptop, the sound comes out of the TV.

So this must mean the problem is with my computer specifically. Although, this computer is only a month old, so I wouldn't think anything is out of date.

I have no idea what's relevant, so I don't know what to post screenshots of, but I've read tons of other threads with the same issues but none of their solutions seem to work for me.

A:Realtek HDMI Output ATI HDMI Audio -Not Plugged In-

Info on your computer would help. We can only talk in generalites or suggestions without it. In most cases, if you have a full HDMI port with both audio and video, when you plug in an HDMI cable Windows changes the default audio playback device from the "Speakers" (your PC sound card) to "HDMI".

In your case the ATI (now called AMD) should be the device that is feeding the video and audio.

As your PC is only 1 month old, the PC vendor's tech support should be the ones to call since you haven't been able to find a solution to date.

Alright here's my situation:

I have a Core2Duo PC running Vista Home Premium 32 bit, hooked up to my TV using a HDMI cable. This has been working fine for 2 years now. Yesterday I decided to add some more RAM to this PC (4 GB instead of the standard 2 GB to be exact). I know 32 bit will only read 3 GB but I was thinking of upgrading to Windows 7 64 bit later.

Anyway I booted up the computer, worked fine of course, even watched a movie or two without problems. Then this morning I booted up the PC and I suddenly noticed the volume icon saying that there were no audio devices detected! I checked under Hardware and there are no audio devices whatsoever! So my HDMI cable is still giving me picture but no sound! Seeing as I'm using onboard audio I immediately booted into the BIOS and although I couldn't find a specific option that said onboard audio I did see something audio related being "HDA" (I assume HD audio) on automatic, the other option was ACRealtek97 or something. However it was enabled so no luck there.

Does anyone know how all of a sudden my HDMI cable isn't providing audio anymore? I even checked my Nvidia card which also stated that HDMI audio was enabled.

I hope anyone can help me, thanks in advance.

- This means that sound works when the laptop is plugged into an HDMI
- When HDMI is not plugged in, the computer cannot find the built in speakers.
- I have Linux on this system and audio does not work there as well

I would call this a broken chipset, but the fact that the computer still processes audio with the HDMI cable attached is confusing me. Also, the 'audio board' for this laptop has 2 usb ports attached to it, and those both work fine.

Any help would be appreciated

HDMI cable allows only video transfer or audio and video?

A:HDMI cable

If your gfx card allows it the hdmi cable will carry the audio too. HDMI cables are design for both video and audio signals.

I have an HDMI to RCA converter cable to put my computer on my TV screen. However, when I hook the cable up to my computer and my TV, my computer does not detect it. I have a Toshiba Satellite A505 computer and run Windows 7. Any suggestions? Thanks!

A:HDMI to RCA Cable

The cable will only work if the graphics card has TV out capability to output analog signals on the digital pins. I suspect the Satellite A505 does not have this capability .

Because I am an ignoraums, I bought a HDMI to DVI cable for my new Digital TV to connect to my Dell pc.

I do not need a "to DVI" cable. I need a cable that will connect from the HDMI to my old fashioned big ole crt that has the pins and screws into the back of my cpu.

What do I need? JUst tell me what to shop for. exactly.
this is wat i bought

the connector for the tv is fine, the connector for the crt is not. I think I have a sixteen pin or a nineteen pin. I don't need any software do I? I have WMV and Quicktime and Realplayer. do any/all of them function with this kind of hookup?

A:HDMI cable

When you refer to the "Connector for the CRT" do you mean the connector that is on your old CRT monitor or are you referring to the video output connector on the computer?

If you are talking about the connector on the computer, its it trapezoid shaped with exactly three rows of round openings with exactly five openings (contacts) per row? If so, it is a typical VGA connector. The bad news is that VGA is analog video only and the HDMI connector on your TV only takes serial digital video. There is no simple and inexpensive way to convert from one to the other. If the TV does not have any kind of analog computer video input, you may need at least get a new video controller card that has an HDMI output for your computer.

EDIT: I just reread your post and am now not 100 clear now on what you want to do. Your old fashioned CRT monitor with VGA input will not work with the HDMI output of your computer. If your computer has a DVI output, exactly which of the connector configurations does it have as shown in the following link:

Note: There are people selling fairly inexpensive cables on eBay and on-line stores that have a VGA plug on one end and an HDMI plug on the other. I have no idea what kind of hardware they were designed for but I am 99.999% sure it will not work for your computer's VGA output.

When I connect my Windows 7 computer to an LCD TV monitor, the resolution is set to 1920 x 1080, however I don't see the entire Desktop, rather it looks like it's been zoomed in. Any ideas?


Hello Slam,

You might double check to see if your DPI settings may be set to something other than the default 96 DPI.

Hope this helps,

I run a vga cable from my computer to my monitor. The cable needs to be about 20 feet. I tried a dvi cable but the longer dvi cables (more than 5 meters ) dont work. Can I use an HDMI cable and hook up 2 hdmi to dvi converters on each end to attach to my computer and computer monitor?

I am looking for a cable that takes component, and stereo audio in on one side, and ends up as a single HDMI connector on the other side, so I can connect my PC to the TV's HDMI port.

At the moment, I use three seperate composite cables, move my PC speakers around as that's what the sound comes out of, and it's a whole lot of hassle and a whole big mess of cables that barely reach.

I've looked all over for a cable that does this, it sounds like something people need, and I can't understand why I can't find it. The closest I have found is this PS3 cable. However the connector on it is some special one for a PS3, not a HDMI one. Or else, it would be absolutely ideal:

I live in the UK, if anyone knows of somewhere that sells what I'm looking for, it would be much appreciated, thanks

I have absolutely no idea about it...can anyone please tell me what it is (in brief) and also will it improve my graphic visuals in my monitor??

A:What is an HDMI cable and do I need one?

HDMI stands for high definition media interface, basically it's a 2 in one cable that carries the display signal as well as a sound signal. If you use a HDMI cable to connect your laptop to your tv for example, you'll be able to use the TV as another monitor, and you'll also be able to play music through your tv speakers.
With computer monitors, unless they have built in speakers that you plan to use, there's no real advantage of using a HDMI cable to connect from your computer, a standard DVI or VGA connection is just as good (Though go with DVI (White) over VGA (Blue) if possible there)

I currently have a HDMI to DVI cable connected. It was an inexpensive one and now I'm finding out it is probably the cause of grainy vision on my screen.

So, what would be my best cable to get to solve this problem?
I have looked at both Monster cable and Ultra but even w/ these, there are different levels.

Thanks, Tom

I've just replaced the old VGA cable with an HDMI and the display is slightly smaller than before.

The system is a Dell Inspiron 580 with an ATI Radeon HD 5450 1Gb graphics card.
The monitor is a Dell ST 2310 (1920x1080).

I've tried updating the adapter driver but Windows reports that the best driver is already installed.

A:HDMI Cable

What do you mean by "smaller"? Is the text and icons look smaller now compared to before? If so, probably the monitor is running at it's native resolution compared to when you hook it up using VGA... If you can, provide a screenshot...

Hello everyone!

First of all i would like to thank everyone for the answers and help you share and i am new to this forum. I tried to search before making this thread but i havent found any answer that could help me.

The Asus is a 23" LCD monitor, its connected via HDMI.
The Acer is a 18,5" LCD monitor, its connected via VGA.
My laptop is an Acer 7736, 2,20 GHZ, 4 GB RAM, 1GB graphic card from ATI Radeon.
So i beg you please to help me, i have tried everything possible, been trying for the last 7 hours and i even downloaded Ultramon but it doenst work either.

I only want them to work in same time, what can i do?

Here is the link, i even tried updating the drivers on the graphic card but nothing works.
Thanks in advance!!!

A:HDMI trouble when VGA connected

A lot of laptops do not have the ability to go to more than two monitors (Edit: this is including laptop as monitor). You can probably have both work if you close your laptop lid, otherwise, only the laptop and VGA or laptop and HDMI will work. (Edit: if you close laptop lid, the two monitors VGA and HDMI will work but only with laptop monitor closed)

I think there is a piece of hardware you can purchase that can turn a USB port into and external display adapter, but I don't know if it was GFX card specific or if your card needs or supports a particular piece.

My laptop suffers from this as well. I tried it and confirmed it after seeing issue on this forum a few weeks ago.

First of all sorry if it's not that Windows related!
So the problem is that my LCD TV has a scrambled picture when my computer is turned on and connected to the TV via HDMI. I got analog signal TV connection but the picture is fine while the PC is turned off. Yeah I know I should get digi TV but till then I would like to sort this out. The TV is a Samsung 40" LCD model LE40A336. It has 2 HDMI input ports. Tryed both with same results. BTW if I remember it right, I had the PC connected via VGA last weekend and didn't have this problem. I will double check it in the morning.
Maybe I'm using wrong setting with PC... wrong Hz or sth. Anyhow maybe someone has had similar problems and solved it.

EDIT: The TV is the only monitor connected to the PC via HDMI. Sound is passing through the HDMI cable aswell.

the VGA doesn't transfer data signals through digital technology, it uses analog, that's why the picture appears correct on the VGA, the HDMi though uses a technology called HDCP handshaking, the PC needs to handshake the display for it to show the images being encrypted from the desktop, if that handshake doesn't take place then the image will appear scrambled.

you can read up about HDCP here High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia but your options are just to use the VGA cable, or if it is a software fault then ... Read more
