    Can't play sound on TV through HDMI - ASUS, Windows 8.1


    Hi everyone,

    I have been struggling with this for weeks - whenever I plug my computer into a TV through an HDMI cable, the screen visual transfers perfectly but no sound comes through the TV.

    Please note that I have scoured the forums and have tried all of the basic suggestions that people have given:
    -HDMI or similar does not show up in 'Playback Devices'
    -All of my drivers are up to date

    I am running Windows 8.1. I have an ASUS Q550L notebook (can see all the specs here: Asus 15.6" TouchScreen Laptop Intel Core i7 8GB Memory 1TB Hard Drive Q550LF-BSI7T21 - Best Buy)

    Please help!! Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum! When you plug in the HDMI does HDMI audio show up in Device Manager? Also just noticed someone with the same problem here: Asus hdmi tv sound problem

    The sound section is where this belongs but it's ok, one of the mods will probably move it there.

    @Popeye Yeah I had no idea which category to put this thread under lol.

    And no, HDMI doesn't show up in the Device Manager for sound. :/

    So you have the drivers here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sea...20&ProdId=3720

    Have you tried the drivers from the Asus site?
