ATI HDMI audio not working. It is set as default device but it is still not working. I am using windows 7 with radeon 3200 onboard graphics and I am connecting it to my samsung lcd tv.
It gives an error that the audio device you selected is currently turned off in windows.
Please help.

Are the drivers updated to the latest ones?

Also disable the audio to your speakers on your computer and make the LCD the primary display.

Disconnect the cable from the PC when the power is on both the tv and PC wait 10 seconds ad plug it back in

I dealt with the same issue last night, and got it fixed. I new that it wasn't a card, TV, or cable issue because the machine dual boots to Server 2008 and the HDMI audio on that install worked perfectly. I tried many other strategies until I realized that the HDMI audio driver wasn't being updated when I downloaded the new drivers from ATI. I discovered this after I uninstalled the ATI drivers and realized that the audio device was still listed in the Device Manager as ATI. Using Device Manager I uninstalled the device, but it reinstalled itself a few moments later. So, I looked at its properties and found the name of the driver "AtiHtmi.sys". I did a search and found the file in two places:

C:\Windows\System32\
C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\[ati subfolder name]

If I deleted the file from just the System32 folder the system healed itself by copying it from the FileRepository's subfolder. The FileRepository is a system folder, but if you are an admin and can take ownership of it's subfolder that contains the driver, you might be able to delete the backup driver's containing folder. I dual booted with Server 2008, so it was a bit easier for me.

Long story short--I uninstalled the ATI drivers, deleted the remaining ATI HDMI Audio drivers, rebooted, then installed the latest ATI drivers and it worked.

I hope this helps somebody else, too.

Dear Mr. howardp6,

Three days ago I spent around 6 hours of my night trying to fix this issue. I installed a thousand drivers in different combinations. Also in different ways, like manually selecting ATI drivers instead of the Microsoft ones as many websites suggested. Not one soul mentioned what you did. I don't get how windows hasn't fix this, apparetly, easy problem but I just disable the laptop sound and Voila!

I cannot thank you enough, you save me a lot of hours and frustration.

Sincerely yours,
Siralf

1. ARE you using a HDMI Cable plugged into the Video Card to TV? Will not work if not.

FOR REALTEK AUDIO ONLY!!

2. GO to http://www.realtek.com.tw/

3. Find Audio Drivers and download the HDMI Audio Driver. This is a seperate driver from the Audio Card Drivers.

After accepting agreement. If page does not go to HD Audio Codecs, select it in the Quick Links column on right.

Then select ATI HDMI Audio Device.

1. You Must use a HDMI cable from Video Card to TV/Monitor, will not work if not.

2. Search for HDMI Audio Driver if one of the above solutions are not for your AUDIO Card.

3. The two solutions above are the most commonly used on Mothboards in last few years.

My systems: ASROCK P43DE / ATI HD5450 and ASUS P7P55 / ATI HD5570 and GIGABYTE 965S3 / ATI R240.

All are using Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 with latest ATI Video Drivers

Simple info for HDMI Sound output.

1. Must use a HDMI cable to video HDMI video capable card.
a. There are VGA / DVI to HDMI cables available but these do not transmit sound.

2. HDMI sound is 2-channel only.

3. Check HDMI sound out by following these steps:
a. Right click on speaker next to clock in taskbar.
b. Select "Playback Devices".
c. Highlight the HDMI device (should be first on list).
d. Right click for context menu and click "TEST".

HINT: Turn TV-Monitor volume up to 100 (test sound volume does not seem to be controlled by computer out)
(if scale shows green bars but no sound, make sure you are not RGB input - if using - on TV)

You now have two sound out options- TV HDMI (2-channel) and Computer (up to 8-channel)

Hope this helps and happy computing
