I'm using Windows 8 pro and I can't get any sound with my TV when plugged into my PC(A8-6600k/i-GPU) using a HDMI and yes I checked the "playback devices". While my TV(an Olevia) does appear apparently it's "Not plugged in", even though I'm using it right now..., and the two standard 3.5mm jacks are working.

Check your video driver settings, for instance here is mine for my nvidia card:

Mine is currenlty set to disabled, on purpose. Yours may be disabled by accident :)

1) Try reinserting the HDMI cable while running.

2) Reinstall the AMD APU drivers. Obtain the latest version.

The problem appears to be a bug with the drivers. I don't think the above would help; if you had it disabled it shouldn't even show up in your Playback Devices.

He said he did, or tried at least and it appears but says "not plugged in."

1) I'll try that as soon as I get home.*EDIT- I won't be home until late Monday night. Sorry.
2)I installed the latest Catalyst drivers shortly after I posted my question since I realized that I didn't have them and the audio hasn't changed, but the picture size did shrink and a black frame did form.(I turned off my PC and went to sleep without messing around with Catalyst.)

Hi,
That "black frame" is I assume black bars. This is caused because your drivers reset to a lower screen resolution and the screen is NOT set to stretch.

You need to:
a) Set the screen resolution to the MAXIMUM supported (1920x1080 for example, but in your case on the TV it's in the HDTV section such as 1080p_NTSC 60).

b) Scale by Aspect:
I don't know if this option even exists in HDTV settings but since you have black bars I guess it must.

If the sound got disabled on accident follow the next steps:
Go to sounds
Go to playback tab
right click inside the list of playback devices
left click on show disabled devices.
hopefully then you can see the device you were looking for.
If not then do what woofer suggests.

hopefully this was helpful.

Check the DATES. Since he chose best answer 10 months ago or so I can only assume the issue was resolved.

I was running trough a similar problem the day I wrote my answer. I did notice that he did choose a best answer close to a year ago, but I think this is a general enough problem that more than one person might need help with. I came to this post while searching for an answer to my problem and figured out that other people searching online for a solution to this problem might come to this forum, so I thought to myself why not post here what I found out.
