Windows 7: No sound on HDMI TV Output

No sound on HDMI TV Output

Hello, please help.

I have my laptop Dell Studio connected to Hitachi HDTV input, the problem is that the TV displays picture (although not in full recommended resolution, not sure why either), but the sound is not coming out from the TV speakers. The audio device manager shows as if sound is being used, the little green bars move up/down when something is being played but no actual sound is heard.

I have attached a picture of the audio device manager page to show you how is configured right now.

I'm desperate and I don't know what to do.

What is the actual Dell model number? I can't look up what it's supposed to do without it.

However, normally when HDMI is used, the Sound panel displays "HDMI", not FPD TV that you show.

It does look a bit like a driver issue (Could be either audio or video actually). May give Dell tech support a call on that one and hope for the best

One thing I overlooked. According to the Sound Panel you have two of the same sound installed and that is also a problem. You need to ONLY use the Dell provided drivers, we have found on the Dell forum that non Dell sound drivers either do not work or do not work correctly.
