    Cool Getting HDMI audio 2 work?

    Is it actually possible? I have tried messing around with the sound settings for ages but it just doesn't seem 2 work, even though there is an HDMI tab in the audio manager.

    same thing here.
    I was using a Toshiba Sattelite A300 and i plugged the HDMI cable from the TV to the laptop and I only got the image but no sound. And I also had the HDMI tab just like you!!!
    I had to use the speakers. No big deal since the laptop speakers are great!(harman/kardon)

    From a terminal prompt, try this:

    amixer -c 1 sset 'IEC958' unmute

    More info (somewhat buried) in this article: http://michigantelephone.wordpress.c...r-aspire-revo/

    I'm in the same boat, HDMI outputs video, but no audio. I was playing with the setting but I don't have anything HDMI to output right now, and I am not on my laptop right now.

    I will post back later with any info I dig up.

    Here's to good luck ...
