Windows 7: No Sound in HDMI

No Sound in HDMI

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.

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.

Could you tell me how to do that ?? I've tried a lot but to no avail....
I've got a Lenovo Y560 with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 and Intel HD Graphics.

As you have both the Intel HD Graphics and the ATI, I don't know how you select which one to use. The ATI Radeon has HDMI audio listed in its specifications. I don't know if the Intel HD Graphics also has that.

The Lenovo users manual (should be one loaded on the PC, I have a different model Lenovo ideapad and it has it) should detail how to select which video device.

The latest AMD (ATI) driver can be downloaded and it will contain the needed HDMI audio driver. But, I can't guarantee that will fix the problem. This is really a subject for a different forum section, even though it is on audio, since it involves proper PC configuration.

Here is the AMD (ATI) driver download: AMD Catalyst

Otherwise you may want to repost about the HDMI configuration issue on a different forum section.

Solved !!

I did it !!
For all the others with ATI or Y560 related problems -->
Just head to Device Manager -> System Devices and enable both High Definition Controllers. Then go to Sound[Control Panel] and enable HDMI output from there !!

Cheers !
