Windows 7: HDMI "not plugged in"

HDMI "not plugged in"

I wonder if people can help me here; I've been googling this question and searching through this forum but cannot find anything that could even come close to helping me.

I have a Samsung R530 running Windows 7 32bit. When I hook it up to my Philips Cineos TV via the HDMI cable, the video comes through perfectly but audio only plays through the laptop speakers. When I went into sound in control panel, this is why I see:



When I click on Intel HDMI device, it is greyed out so I can neither set as default or configure. I'm not entirely sure what it means by "not plugged in".

This is what comes up under device manager:



And this is what I see with the Realtek audio:



Any ideas because this is something that is increasingly hurting my head? Is it something to do with my audio card, my video card or.. what?

Thank you.

I have my HDTV set up in a similar fashion. In order to get the sound coming from the HDTV I need to right click on HDMI device (mine says V0320-E1 for a Vizio HDTV) and click enable. I also have to right click on speaker and disable. Once I'm no longer using the HDTV, I need to reverse those steps to get sound from my desktop speakers.

That yours says not plugged in, doesn't quite make sense it it obviously knows there's a cable attached. Perhaps it's a faulty cable.

Also, if I remember correctly when I first attached my TV, I needed to unplug the TV and computer, attach the HDMI cable, power on the TV, power on the computer.

We have HDMI cable going from the Sky HD box to the TV. I'll try and take it out from the HD box and putting it from my laptop and then disabling the "realtek audio" and will post up what happens.

Also try and power down both, and unplug both TV and Computer before attaching. Plug in, and power on TV and computer in that order

Might not be the same, but that was one of the symptons I was experiencing when rebooting my machine. I found there was a conflict between the Realtek HDMI drivers and ATI drivers (I know you dont seem to have an ATI card, but it mgiht be similar). Does the sound o mue wn going to sleep? (another sympton that it might be a similar problem).
Look here:

Audio Driver Update worked for me (Here is how)

Hello

I had intermittent detection of the HDMI in "Control Panel/Sound", and eventually no detection (the following solution may also work for those who were never able to obtain a signal at all). For me updating the audio driver fixed the problem. You can update the audio and video drivers by following the steps below (found these steps at Microsoft website). My computer is only 6 months old, but still needed the drivers updated. No special system setting are required as written in previous posts, if the driver is the problem. I was also extremely frustrated with the ongoing problem and hope the driver updates work for you. Good luck!
  1. Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager.* If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  2. In Device Manager, locate the device you want to update, and then double-click the device name.
  3. Click sound video and gaming controller
  4. Open each audio controller in sound video and gaming (one at a time) and update by Clicking the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver and follow the instructions.

HDMI Audio not connected

Hi
I see that this was an old post but I'm curious how boneyarsebogman resolved this. I have the same problem where my computer displays the HDMI video signal but at the same time say the cable is not connected for the audio. Funny enough I took my computer upstairs to my Samsung 40" and after doing every update available for both the operating system and for NVIDIA the sound came through. Then I brought the computer downstairs to my 47" Philips it still didn't work. The fact that boneyarsebogman had also tried it on his Philips leads me to believe that the type of tv might be the problem.

Similar to another thread on this page, just to clarify you are using the correct input on the tv? I recently changed my desktop from vga connection to hdmi on my LG tv and found that it showed it wasn't connected unless the hdmi input was selected.

Fixed

I thought I did all the Windows updates but it looks like I didn't, apparently Microsoft had a Realteck (or something like that) update that I had missed. Anyways the screen fit exactly to the size of the TV and then I started hearing the sound again.
