Whenever I connect my laptop to my TV, or any TV, over HDMI, the sound still always goes through the laptop speakers instead of the TV speakers. The only workaround I could find is disabling my laptop speakers whenever I connect to a TV, then re-enable them when I'm done, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a more practical and permanent solution to the problem.
I have this problem on both my Phillips and LG TVs at home, and the Samsung and Panasonic TVs at my school, so it is a general problem, and not related to my specific TV.
Thanks in advance.

Go to control panel / sound / playback. Select your tv from the devices and 'set as default'

Go into control panel, go to sound and set the audio output through the HDMI!
