Hello,
I have a samsung satellite A350-20s laptop and a Samsung HD TV. When i connect them using a HDMI cable the sound only plays through the laptop which is fairly quite. Can you tell me how to get the sound to come through the TV please.

I take it you are using your laptop to watch DVD etc on your HD TV. I had the same problem where the sound was coming out my laptop. I solved this by going in to the sound options on my computer (which you can access in your control panel) then set your sound default as HDMI. This should solve the problem, just remember to set the default back to the laptops speakers when you are finished using it on your TV.
I hope that helps.
