Re: HDMI sound problem

All you have to do is connect the cable and get picture coming through
the TV, and then right click on your sound settings in the bottom right,
next to your clock. Click on "Playback Devices" you should have an
option for "SPDIF Interface". (Note: you DO NOT need a seperate audio
cable, the SPDIF Volume control will also operate HDMI functions)

Single left-click on it and underneath next to properties click on "Set
Default".
Now close your Youtube, or browser, or music program or anything active
that sends out sound and restart your youtube or whatever and you'll get
sound through your TV.

RE: HDMI sound problem
Hello,
I had this problem but not anymore.
First, your video card should handle sound. My card is an ATi Hd 2600XT and
it has a processor sound built in so I know sound was a possibility.

Second, in Start/Control Panel/Hardware and sound/Sound/Manage Audio
Device/Playback Tab, you should see your Hdmi hardware, my TV is called
Digital Output Device (HDMI), if you doesn't see something close to that
name, try contextual menu option (Show disabled Devices) or (Show
Disconnected Devices). You will have the option Enable, Disable, Test, Set as
Default Device, this last option will allow you to use the speakers of your
TV. Beware, if you enable it, you could loose your TV sound so don't forget
to select what you need.

Good Luck!
