Question about LG 42PX4DV 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
I've just connected my new laptop to my LG 42PX4DV and can view the picture fine. However, I've just discovered that my laptop does not support HDMI audio (only video). I tried using a 3.5mm jack out of the laptop headphone jack to the TV Audio IN 3.5mm jack to get sound for movie viewing. However, HDMI overrides the 3.5mm TV Audio IN and I can't get any sound if the HDMI cable is plugged in. The sound works through the TV if the HDMI cable is unplugged. i.e. I can have sound without video OR video without sound. Are there any TV options (or upgrades) that get around this? I just want to be able to watch HDMI with sound. It doesn't have to be HDMI sound. Thanks.
I found the fix. Had the same problem.
I right clicked on the sound speaker icon in the bottom right of Windows 7.
Chose Playback Devices.
Once this window opens, then make sure you are on the Playback tab.
Scroll down until you see the HDMI Device. (Mine was hidden at the bottom of the list.)
Then choose "set as default".
The sound will begin playing on the TV with only the HDMI connected......no need for an extra audio cable.

One quick fix you can try. plug in the HDMI cable, slect a digital audio sound output from the sound settings on your machine, then leave it connected and restart it. It just might work.
