hdmi sound prob


Standard Member
hi all, just had a replacement hp pavillion entertainment laptop in exchange of an acer which i could connect to my yam amp via hdmi with no prob. this hp is a different prob, connected to amp via hdmi then to projector, when playing anything i only get stereo lights up on the amp. tried control panel-sounds and it has the digital output(hdmi) selected. cannot see any other icon to be able to select anything. i read somewhere that the laptop would auto see the amp and switch things accordingly, so maybe its only detecting the proj ?? got this posted in the laptop section also.

Most PC motherboards with built in graphics and HDMI out can only produce stereo and that goes for laptops, it is all down to the onboard chipset used.

not very good with computers but all i know is it has a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530 graphics which should be capable of 7.1 sound
