No Audio via HDMI on U400

Hi,

I got my new U400  a week ago. Today I tried to connect the laptop to my TV using HDMI.

 

but the audio does not play on the TV, I looked in few forums, which suggests that I need to switch the audio to Hi Definition Audio Controller, from the Control Panel->Sound->Playback.

 

I only see one audio playback device listed there (Conexant Smart Audio HD) which is my laptop speakers. I right tclicked on empty are and selected both disabled and disconnected devices, but no HDMI audio controller is listed.

 

Any help on this issue is appreciated.

 

Thanks.

according to the threads below, updating drivers fixes your issue. click support drivers&downloads banner on top, select u400 and re-install/update drivers.

Re: No Audio via HDMI on U400

I checked and all my drivers are up to date. 

I am not sure if I have any other alternatives?

Re: No Audio via HDMI on U400

Re: No Audio via HDMI on U400

tried all combinations but does not seem to help. the HDMI playback is never listed in the playback devices. I am confused, will it always be listed there or only displayed when the TV is connected to laptop.

Re: No Audio via HDMI on U400

I have tried but all the drivers are up to date. I have LG Lcd tv 720p relatively old, but it works well with all other internet capable devices. I am not sure what causes the digital hdmi display as one of the playback devices and Why its not listing in my laptop?

Did you found a decision? I have the same problem with U400.

If I plugin HDMI to my TV Samsung Plasma PS50C450 I have not the sound. I was traied many types of settings and when to connetion, but the sound is only sometimes, when I connect other HDMI port on TV them before. But after disconect it is again lost.
