  1. How do I configure Windows to output audio & video to HDMI?


    I'm told that Windows can use HDMI. I'm considering buying a 7.1 HDMI decoder that has 8 RCA jacks so I can use my existing amplifiers. But I could not find a setting in 'Windows Settings' 'Sound' 'App volume and device preferences' 'Output'. All that is listed is "Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio)".


    How do I tell Windows to use HDMI?


    Note: I also tried 'Windows Settings' 'Display' and clicked everywhere and couldn't even find a mention of HDMI.


    Warm Regards,

    Mark

    :)

    HDMI audio output to Sony TV

    Hi,

    One possible reason why your HDMI audio output was not working due to outdated drivers. To isolate your issue, kindly answer the following questions:

    • Have you made any recent changes prior to this issue?
    • Did you get any error messages when you tried to connect your computer to your TV?
    • Have you tried updating your HDMI audio driver?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    We're looking forward to your response.

    HDMI audio output problem

    If you had read the web page
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/no-hdmi-audio-output/7b5b4084-5e0e-4c52-befb-1564ca2fe57e
    , you would not have suggested the Realtek website for finding the driver. If you want more
    information, you will be able to read the web pages from above. The software tool named audio10 does not work. It cannot be started. The issue is: “How do I get Realtek HDMI Output in the device manager?” This would really solve the problem.

    No HDMI audio output in Device Manager

    Hi Charles,

    I appreciate the troubleshooting steps you have tried to resolve the issue.

    Please answer these question to understand the issue better.

    Are you able to get Video output when you connect HDMI cable or the issue is specific to Audio?

    I suggest you to install all pending Windows and BIOS, Chipset and HDMI updates in your computer and check. Also provide screen shot of Device manager by connecting HDMI cable.
