View Full Version : [ubuntu] No sound in external device (TV)

August 31st, 2010, 07:13 AM
As the title says. I don't have any sound in my external device (TV). I'm attempting to watch a movie on the VLC player but I can't seem to get the sound to work through my television speakers! They are coming out of my computer speakers just fine though...

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. My apologies for possibly an easy fix - I'm a Linux nub! :P

How is your tv hooked to your computer?

HDMI? S-VIDEO? Compsite?

HDMI to an LCD TV.

Also, I've tried setting the profile (under sound settings, "Hardware" tab) to digital stereo (HDMI) out. Still no use. :(

Oh and I'm using the latest version of Ubuntu btw.
