No matter how I play with the audio settings I can not get the Dell audio to come from the TV when I connect via HDMI cable. The screen is fine - just no audio. The audio continues to play from the computer. Any ideas?

Simple fix : Click start and type sound and goto "change sound card settings"-> goto HDMI sound (tv icon) and right click it -> select "Set as default" It will work. Just restart the application from which you are trying to play the audio. It will work 1000%

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 6000 to TV

On a dell laptop, the key combo FN  F8 cycles through the display options. Laptop screen, External screen, Laptop and External screen at the same time.  Try pressing the FN F8 key to get the video to display on both laptop and lcd and the same time.  If that doesn't work you can also change the settings on what the laptop does when the lid is closed.  Check the power settings in the control panel.

SOURCE: No picture when i connect to tv via hdmi

If you can give me some more detail, I might be able to help. Are you trying to connect your computer to your TV? If that is the case, most graphic cards can be set for dual output, but in most cases this has to be enabled through the software that came with your graphics card or by going to the properties screen on your computer monitor. There are several ways to do it. Hope this helps

SOURCE: I connected my DELL MINI Inspirion 10 via HDMI to LCD TV

Hi
HDMI is only used for Video output and not for sound, you will have to use your laptop audio out (has a pic of headphones), you are able to get headphone jack to phono (white / Red) cable to connect to TV or surround sound system or your laptop speakers.

Connecting my laptop to my sansui 42" lcd tv via the hdmi cable, i get clear picture but no sound


Does your laptop feed sound through the HDMI connection? You may have to use the HDMI 1 jack on the HDLCD3200. Change the HDMI setting in the audio menu on the tv to DVI and run a seperate audio cord from the laptop to tv. I hope this is helpful

Dell insperon 1525 no sound or picture to tv with new hdmi cable connected , it worked fine yesterday but now i can get nothing , it doesnt even show on the tv that the laptop is connected to the tv


When you connect the laptop to the tv with the HDMI cable you will need to press function and F1/F2 depending on your keyboard layout. It is the key with 2 screens on it.
Once you press that windows will show you options for changing displays like Duplicate, Extend, Monitor, Projector(in this case Projector is the TV)
And for audio, you will need to right click on the volume mixer in the system tray and say playback devices. Click on the hdmi one and say set as default.
When this is done, everytime you plug in the HDMI to the TV it will automatically play audio from the TV.

RX-V465 Yamaha Reciver we can get picture but no sound w/PS3


Check HDMI Sound settings:
Enter Setup menu via remote, then Func. Setup / HDMI / Audio. You can choose from Amp (sound will be played via Yamaha), TV (sound will go straight via HDMI out to your TV and not play on Yamaha) and Amp+TV (Yamaha will play the sound and also pass it to the TV).
Also what is your source? DVD or some network player? For example Yamaha cannot decode audio in AAC or other computer formats, so be sure to change the audio settings of your player to output PCM and not raw/bitstream.

I just bought a Yamaha 5.1 system with rcvr RX-V365 i have HDMI to tv then HDMI to RCVR then another HDMI to DTV. Problem cant seem to get picture AND sound together through RCVR. depending on what setting...


RX-V365 doesn't support sound over HDMI. It can switch the video+audio from HDMI in to HDMI out, but can't play the sound through the speakers. You need to connect the audio separately via optical or coax digital cable.
