    No audio over HDMI

    Connected my laptop up to the TV yesterday (Panasonic), played a movie fine. Tried today, no sound is coming out over the TV. Seriously WTF, it's driving me nuts, same TV, same HDMI cable. Tried other (smaller) tv and it works ok. Any ideas?!? Laptop isn't on internet, so not like a driver has updated or such.

    Have you check the sound settings?

    You can change the default audio from the speakers to the hdmi or jack

    I used to have that issue on my uncles laptop. It was very intermittent . Its due to HDMI port is dodgy on the laptop.

    Worth Buying High Quality HDMI cable as well.

    Man, I have the same problem. There was sound but now it's gone and I can only get audio through the jack which is rubbish!

    What gpu chip, there is yet another firmware stuff up with the 4400 and 4600 on several motherboards - gigabyte- which breaks audio over hdmi more often than not without very specific drivers which bring the success rate up to about three in four. I have a motherboard that is affected, neither intel nor gigabyte seem to care.

    Cheers. I'll check that out when I get back. I've bought a couple of HDMI leads too which I'm hoping, by miracle, will sort it out!

    Does all audio not work? your TV may not support DTS and or DD so they play without sound (Movies) but windows should be ok. You can do the speaker test which will let you select the bitrate of the digital audio (PCM) going to the TV. try the old 44Khz16bit first.

    also try the xbmc player it's very good at hdmi things...
