Since having netflix I have been watching it on my TV by connecting the laptop to the TV using a HDMI lead but now there's no volume on the TV.I turn the volume right up using the remote but all I can hear is the sound from the laptop.I had this problem when I first got netflix and found the laptop had to be turned off before connecting to TV which I have done since and it even worked last night but just tried to watch something but no sound only from the laptop but that is not loud enough any ideas out there
I had exactly the same problem. The advice given to me was to right-click on the sound icon at the bottome right corner of the screen. Select the output devices. I suspect this is a shortcut to what Lotvic suggests.
When I right click on the sound icon near the clock I do not get devices all I get is Open volume maker,playback devices,recording devices and sounds also volume control options.
As for lotvics suggestions just going to try them
Go to control Panel
Hardware and Sounds
Select HDMI, Right Click.
Set As Default
It appears they are suggesting that you lower the display resolutions on your laptop. In Windows 7 go to Control Panel - Display - Change Display Settings - Click Resolutions and using the slide bar lower your settings.
Looks like the problem is solved what I did was pop into my local PC shop and asked them for their advise and they said right click on the volume icon then click on playback devises and then right click on HDMI icon and set as default which worked looking back this is probably the same advise I was given on here so thanks anyway for all the help.
This problem has re-occurred maybe because I have changed my television set.Have tried what I did before which was right click the sound icon then click on playback devices then there is only a icon for Sony TV and if I right click that the set as default device is not highlighted.The TV is a Sony KDL-W42653A any help appreciated
