No Sound Output on TV via HDMI (11z running Win7 x86) - 12-13-2009, 08:26 AM
I'm really stumped. I can't seem to get sound to output via my TV when connected via HDMI.
Under Device Manger I see a HDMI device listed. Pic Below.
But under playback I only the speakers listed.
After researching Ive learned that I might have to set the playback to HDMI as default but its unavailable under playback settings. I've uninstalled the Windows 7 stock drivers and installed Dell's RealTek drivers and its not helped.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. The LCD TV is a 2009 Sony Bravia and I think the sound settings on it are kosher.

After much Googling/Binging I came across a solution of sorts.
Run the Intel Driver Update utility(use IE) at IntelĀ® Driver Update Utility. It updated the graphics drivers of which HDMI is part to the latest version.
The catch is that HDMI output to the LCD TV is fine including the sound but on the laptop there is a horrible reddish glarish hue that makes it unreadable. So I'm still kinda stumped. I don't want to lose HDMI audio out so I think I must just live with it till I have to travel with it.
Any idea, what going on?
