Hi woodsman0692,

 

To get sound from HDMI, please enable in the sound property.  To do so, press Windows+Q.  That will bring up SEARCH and type in CONTROL PANEL.  Once control panel open up, choose SOUND.  When sound property comes up, right click on AVAMP and left click SET AS DEFAULT(pic below).  That sound enable sound thru hdmi to av receiver system.

Hi,

 

Can anyone help me in connecting my Sony VAIO laptop to Sony Home Theater using HDMI cable?

 

I tried the way Mr. Nick suggested, but I couldn't see any option saying HDMI/SONY in Sound settings. 

I am able to see only HeadPhones and Speaker/HP which is a laptop sound driver.

 

Please help me out of it. I really wanna enjoy my home theater experience using laptop.

 

Thanks in advance,

Suresh P.
