Hello,

 

please tell us your os too.

 

The problem of no sound at hdmi interface is a widespread phenomenon.

Please search google, "hdmi kein Ton" you´ll get a lot of hints.

Problems can be caused by cable, or settings in your os.

I experienced the same issue with my SL300.  Make sure that HDMI AUDIO on your receiver is OFF. Then, go to start, control panel, hardware, audio and make sure that the icon NVIDIA AUDIO is checked.

 

Finally make sure that the dvd software on your laptop supports Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS. usually the bundled software does not play this formats, hoping that you will  purchase the DD 5.1 and DTS plugins..... $ 15 each......  If this is tha case download WINDVD9 basic, trial version and you will be as shocked as i was yesterday. Excellent video quality and PERFECT multichannel audio, you will even see  DD 5.1 and DTS on the receiver's display.  Do not forget to go to settings ( upper right hand) and set it up for bitstreaming.

 

Let me know  what you think.
