Does the sound control panel show that sound is being played through it? The bars on the right of it should be lighting up green.

if you've got an Nvidia card i Know there is a thing floating on the net to turn on/off HDMI auto, i think it's called DLPfix or something like that, basically just changes a few reg entries in the driver to enable it.

 

I had to do this to get audio working on my media PC over HDMI.

 

hope you get it working

I sell televisions on the weekend and last weekend I had a customer (young tech savvy kid about 19) who told me his Sony television won't accept HDMI audio from his computer. Not sure what mobo he had, but he said the mobo had HDMI and it's a known issue with certain Sony TVs.

 

He mentioned 3rd party programs that fix the problem for him, but I sold him a bigger & better TV anyway :D

 

Have you googled the TV model number along with "PC HDMI audio" or similar? That might get you onto one of said 3rd party programs?
