I have plugged my new CPU (GPU slot) to my TV and a few different ports on the TV.

In my playback options, I have four:

1) Speakers (front jack, which I works as I have used it with my game chairs wireless speakers)

2)RealTek Audio (assuming the port on back)

3) RealTek HDMI (Integrated HDMI and have it disabled)

4) Digitial HDMI (Microsoft), I am assuming this is the graphics card port? Either way it says it is not plugged in when I enable it.

I have the latest AMD drivers and do not have any options on teh TV to limit HDMI sound. Not sure if I am missing something...

the AMD Catalyst drivers are weird. you must have the monitor on and the PC's HDMI port selected when the PC boots, otherwise the AMD Catalyst center wont detect it and disables it.

Realtek HDMI should be enable not disabled.

Thanks, I will try that when I get home.

So the integrated (Realtek) HDMI won't conflict? I kinda thoguht it might've been a conflict so I disabled it when I couldnt get it to work.

I had the TV on and the HDMI plugged into the graphics card and then started my machine.

It still didn't work. I opened up the Catalyst management program and didnt see anything about audio?

Any other suggestions?

Control panel > sound > choose TV. does that work? I have to do that quite often on mine.

Go into device manager and make sure the drivers for your card are ok. I remember when I put a GT 430 in my friend's PC and installed the drivers and everything and the HDMI audio still didn't play, I just happened to check device manager and there were yellow question marks on the devices that were disabled for some reason. So i updated them and all of the sudden the digital audio option popped up in control panel and all was well in the world.

Tried both of these suggestions and neither worked. Really frustrating that I can't seem to figure it out.

Any further suggestions?

Did you disable the onboard audio in the BIOS?

If he does that he won't get any sound at all. The GPU doesn't produce the sound its all done by the onboard sound (or add in card) the GPU only acts as a pass through device

*Update*
Still having this issue. I've tried a c ouple otehr things to no avail. I'm about to reformat to see if that helps. I can get audio out of the front port (and have used my game c hairs wireless audio, which has been nice), but still want it to come through TV for movies and stuff.

Before I do, I wanted to see if anyone had any other suggestions.
