I have a really annoying problem, and I hope that someone could help. I've already googled it, but none of the normal suggestions for this problem solved it.

I've connected my desktop (windows vista, ATI 4770) to my Samsung 37" LCD TV trough a HDMI 1.3 cable.
The video is excellent, but there is no sound coming out of my TV speakers. I've set my desktop sound device to "High definition audio", the sound device added to my computer after I installed the 4770 graphics card (so I know the graphics card supports sound), but nothing.

The sound in other HD devices I have works just fine with only an HDMI cable. I've tried all 3 HDMI connections in my TV, but with no success.

Thanks a lot for any help or advice!! this thing is driving me crazy...

Hi guys,
I had the same problem like many of you. I'm using Vista OS, Acer laptop and Hitachi TV.

  • After connecting go to Control Panel - Sound and set HDMI as default.

That's it :-)
Hope it works for you too.
Don't forget to set the speakers back as default after disconnecting.
thank you. I too have the same problem. mine is a panasonic 26 inch LCD and I got HP laptop. Connected thru HDMI, there was no sound. Let me try ur solution. If it works, I will be more than happy. Thanks a lot
