Try a different cable. Is the cable spec version 1.4?

Can you try this?

 

Use VLC player, open the movie and go to the menu Audio/Audio device and choose HDMI Smiley Happy

 

Does that work?

Hi.

 

Connect your Z580 to your tv via hdmi cable so that you have you have the desktop from your z580 showing,

 

Then, right clicking on the speaker icon on your taskbar, bottom right of the desktop then select playback devices and there should be one names hdmi or something similiar, set it to default.
