9600GT/hdmi problem no sound
  1 / 2    
Hello all. For a past week I've been desperately trying to enable sound trough a hdmi cable on my tv. My home pc has a windows 7 and 9600gt for a graphic card. I've checked the forums for solutions and this is what I have done so far.

Installed the latest drivers.
Installed the latest drivers for the soundcard (motherboard realtek).
I've connected the cable from 9600gt to motherboard so sound could be transfered.
I've connected hdmi cable from pc to tv and I do get the picture but no sound. In nvidia control panel I've selected hdmi sound but did not help.
In my sound options I only have speakers and digital options to set as default no hdmi option.
I tried uninstalling the sound driver and letting windows "take care" of it but no result. There are no options on my tv for sound control and tv is Philips 32PFL3605H/12. Can anyone tell me what am I doing wrong? I also have a very old SBLive! card that has a spdif out on it for graphic card connection. Would that help anyhow?

When the HDMI is plugged into the card and TV:

* Ensure correct input is selected on the TV menu
* Ensure checkbox is checked next to the TV on Nvidia control panel "Setup Multiple Displays"
* On Nvidia control panel, check HDCP status, is the TV / card combination HDCP compliant?
* Try a different HDMI cable
* Rightclick speaker icon, playback devices, set the HDMI as default if you can.

it is HDCP compliant and I've tried the rest. I didn't try another cable but it is just bought and ps3 work great on it and so does PC-TV picture transfer.
In playback menu I don't have HDMI option, I think that's the main problem but whatever I try I can't seem to get it.

Seems like it's the TV or the card, you will have to try a different TV or a different card to rule one out... maybe try the card in another slot if you have one. Did you go through all the TV menus? Maybe the TV is set to receive audio analog and you have to tell it specifically to used audio from HDMI. What is the TV brand/model#?

I've posted the tv model
as for the tv options. They are very limited /blarg.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':/' /> No such options.

Right next the SLI connector on the card you should see a small white 2 pin socket.
With the card you should also have a small cable (S/PDIF) with the corresponding white plug at one end. That fits into the white socket and the other end which has two single black pins attaches to the S/PDIF out header on your motherboard.
Once this connected up you will have sound over HDMI.

I have 3 pins S/PDIF out on my mb so I connect to SPDIF/Ground pins leaving one free.

I have it connected as well. Just like the man above me posted. Are we a lost cause?

I'm afraid we are...
I'm pretty sure that the problem is within Nvidea drivers.
Somehow it doesn't recognize Philips as an audio capable device.
If you look in Nvidia control panel under "Setup digital audio" - the text below says: "Selecting which display will appear in the Windows Sound Panel as an audio device".
And that's exactly what doesn't happens - there is no HDMI sound devices to see there.
I have seen that older Nvidia drivers (266) disables HDMI audio for all Philips HDMI TVs:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/53363637/266-58-WinXP-Desktop-Release-Notes#outer_page_23
I'm not sure if that the case with the last driver as well

I wonder if any of Nvidia stuff is monitoring this forum.
Any help/advice is welcome here

I guess we can only hope then that new drivers will handle this better. Did you perhaps try something with older driver versions?

There is a firmware update on the Philips factory webpage, try that.

I'm updated. Nvidia drivers are the one that block audio on Philips. Don't know why and I hope it will be corrected.
