Windows 7: HDMI not carrying sound HD 7850

HDMI not carrying sound HD 7850

I recently installed my new HD Radeon 7850 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 7850 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?

Your images did not show up in your post.

The first time I used my HDMI connected to my TV I had to go to Sound properties to enable the sound.

How to:

Right click the volume icon in the notification area and select Playback Devices and make the Digital Audio (HDMI) the default by clicking on it, then Set Default at the bottom. *done*

Also OP, one post for the problem please.
