  1. Laptop forgets it's connected FOR SOUND via HDMI


    Hi y'all,So, my Dell Laptop seems to "forget" it is connected FOR SOUND to my TV, via HDMI. Oh, the visual side of HDMI is perfect, and the wireless keyboard and mouse operate the laptop via the TV perfectly...from the comfort of the sofa, but when I play any audio, it STILL comes from the Laptop, and when I go to the laptops Sound Control Panel..... Settings>System>sound> sound control panel although always connected, upon START-UP the TV is not seen as an sound option....until I unplug/reinsert the HDMI cable to the Laptop, when it the TV is now seen as an option

    :)

  2. Sound settings will forget HDMI exists and default to laptop speakers

    Using Windows 11 on an ACER laptop. Drivers are all up to date, everything is patched. I have audio going through to my HDMI connection to my monitor, under system > sound > Choose where to play sound, I set it to play through HDMI. Now with some regularity it will 'forget' that there is an HDMI connection at all (under "Choose where to play sound" HDMI is no longer an option, despite the menu being displayed on my HDMI connected monitor) and so it will come out of the laptop speakers instead. What usually fix it is unplugging the HDMI Cable and replugging it back in. Annoying that Windows 11 has a new version of "Have you turned it on and off again?" for the modern era, "Have you unplugged and replugged it back in?"

    Hdmi sound not working

    Hi Peter,

    One possible reason why the HDMI sound does not work is due to the conflicts with the playback settings. For us to help you make the HDMI sound to work, we suggest that you answer the following questions for further research:

    • Have you made any recent changes to your computer?
    • What is the current build and version of your Windows 10?
    • Have you tried to download and install the most updated sound and display driver of your computer?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you perform the steps on this
    article
    as our initial troubleshooting and see if there will be any changes on the HDMI sound.

    We'll be waiting for your response.
