I do this with my TV too :)

The first place I would look is to make sure that Windows detected the HDMI display properly.

Look in Device manager with the TV connected and turned on.
Click the Windows Orb (used to be the START button in XP)
Type
Device Manager
and you should see a link to click for it.

In the Device Manager window see if there is anything under
Other Devices
or if any items have a question mark or exclamation mark on them.

If you see anything like that let us know what it is and someone can tell you what to do next.(it depends on what exactly you see)

Also what kind of video card are you plugging the HDMI into? I use an ATI card.

There may also be a setting to adjust on the TV itself as some do require the HDMI port to be activated I believe. (don't bother with the TV myself so going off others replies elsewhere)

Why all the fuss, I already have Windows 8. Three windows at the front, and five at the back since I bought the house.

I ask because that is what has to send the sound through an HDMI Audio Driver and on some cards you have to go into their program and turn it on.

In Device Manager under

Sound, Video and Game Controllers

You should see at least two items. One will be your PC (or it sounds like you might be using a laptop which would be important to note :) ) sound card and the other or one of the others should be something like...

Intel HD audio HDMI

If you don't see an 'HDMI' or 'HD audio' item in there then your video driver did not install sound drivers for HDMI. Make sure that you have the latest driver version for your computer.

If you do see it, it may be disabled or experiencing a problem or it would have shown in the screenshot that you posted.

Hope this helps
James

This seems to be an issue with computers that were upgraded to Windows 7 (the HDMI audio device disappears from the 'Playback Devices' list). Was yours originally Windows 7 or did you upgrade it?

Try this site to see if you need an updated driver.

Every successful outcome I found involved going to that Intel site and upgrading the drivers :(

You can check the website of the manufacturer of your laptop and see if they have Windows 7 drivers for your video.

I did find that Windows 7 Service Pack 1 addressed an issue similar to yours. Make sure that you have Service Pack 1 installed (I would be surprised if you did not).

You can check it quickly by pressing the windows key on your keyboard (usually between ctrl and alt) and while pressing it, tap the 'Pause/Break' key (usually by the Scroll Lock key on the upper right of the keyboard)

It will open a System window
In it you should see
Service Pack 1
listed in the Windows Edition section.

I only mentioned SP1 because you didn't give many details about what your system is so there was no way to know how current it is :) There is no SP2.

:wink: :busy: :clapping: :thumbsup: THANK YOU DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!! UR THE BEST! Srry i bothered u... :crazy:.
So i went back to the intel updates and i had one more driver left to update but tht was only the graphic driver and had i thought tht had nothing to do with the issue. But i ignored this fact and still downloaded and updated the driver. When it was installing it said it was downloading TWO drivers the graphic driver and the HDMI AUDIO DRIVER! :lmao: :o :lol: :woot:
.... but i really dont think intel should hav done tht, they should've made two different updates for tht :angry: tht really confused me.
anyways....
I thank you and bleeping-computer from the bottom of my heart for the help! Keep u the gud work!
