Sound control on HDMI input and external speakers setting


1. I am desperatly trying to workaround what seems to be a real problematic design. On my new Lenovo IdeaCentre 520 (AIO), when using the HDMI input, I can't control the volume at all. I can see the picture and hear the sound, but there is no way to adjust the volume. Is there any kind of solution to this?

2. To try and workaround the mentioned problem, I am trying to connect external speakers. But - I can't define them on the sound setting - I can't choose any external speakers. How should this be done?

Re: Sound control on HDMI input and external speakers setting

Greetings and welcome new Lenovo forum user from Israel,


The audio output provided for use with over HDMI connection is what is known as line, it is a flat level meant to feed an audio device that has it's own means of amplification.


Do the external speakers have a volume control on them, because that is how you will need to adjust the volume.
