Solved LG TV not playing sound when connected via HDMI cable

As the title says, I've tried connecting my TV to my computer with an HDMI cable, and the video part works, but no sound plays. When I checked the list of playback devices, the TV appeared (as shown below), but it apparently cannot play sound.

I don't think I know anything beyond what I've posted, but if anyone could help me out with this, I would appreciate it.

Also, as a side note - I am completely unable to interact with any of these objects - I cannot set something as a default device; there is no response when I do it, and disabling the audio device only works until current sources of sound (like videos) are restarted.

If you highlight the LG TV you should​ be able to set it as default. If not, it sounds lik a permission issue (like non-admin account).

Highlight the LG TV, right click, and then select "make default".
