Image but no sound when connecting to television by HDMI

Postby dorabito_123 on Wed Dec 05, 2012 2:38 pm

Hello,
I've installed a few days ago Linux Mint 14 along Windows 7 on a HP laptop.
When I try to connect my computer to my television via HDMI, I can see the image without any problem, but the sound does not come from the TV, it comes from my laptop speakers, and if I go to sound settings and change the sound exit to HDMI, it becomes mute.
Does anyone know why? Does anyone has a solution?

Thank you for reading

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I assume it works OK in Win7 but not Linux? A simple possibility to start with: have you had a look at the volume settings for HDMI, it could be as simple as it's muted or turned right down.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Advanced_Linux_Sound_Architecture#HDMI_Output_Does_Not_Work might help you either solve or at least help isolate the specific issue.

HI, I had similar issues and received help from forum members that resolved my problems, so have a look at my post of Feb 7th in this section
No HDMI sound -ATI Radeon 4570 [RESOLVED]

It may help you too!
