if you want to have the sound come out of the tv's speakers you need to go into the tv's control panel/sound and select that.

The vast majority of computers require external speakers or a headset/headphones simply because monitors DO NOT support them. There are monitors out there which have built-in speakers but they are rare.

do you have amd hdmi output selected as default in sound properties? - yes i have it selected. The volume bar goes up and down the a video is playing but no sound.
Does your monitor have speakers? Many do not. - No, my monitor has a headphone jack thats how i'm connecting my reciever.

Oooh, I have a monitor like that. Did you turn up the volume on the monitor?

I would also suggest trying the other outputs in your "Sound Properties" window.

gotta go into the TV's control panel and look under sound. not on your computer. enable TV's speakers, or if your TV has external speakers you need to point to those..........

having said that............ you also need to select the correct HDMI port. ( also located in the TV's control panel. )
