Realtek Digital Out(RCA) Only 2 Channel sound to RCA Digital into Reciever

Q: Realtek Digital Out(RCA) Only 2 Channel sound to RCA Digital into Reciever

Sound functions but reciever is only detecting 2 channel output. Apon browsing RealTekHD audio properites I discovered that the only options for Digital Output(RCA) were all 2-Channel under "Default Format" tab. However my front pannel Audio Output Jack(HD Audio 2nd Output) has an extra third tab labeled "Speaker Configuration" and has options for up to 7.1 surround but these settings do not impact my Digital Output(RCA) channel. Now my reciever does have a multi-channel input that could take advantage of the Analog Outputs in the rear but the distance is to great and multiple wires are expensive.

My question is how can i configure my RealTek Digital Output(RCA) to ouput 7 channel sound?

Hello, about a week ago I got a new Windows 8 laptop. Everything's been fine except for one thing. Sometimes, for seemingly no reason, my laptop will switch from using the "Speakers" playback device (which works fine) to using the "Realtek Digital Output" playback device (which makes no sound- but I still see the green lines that move up and down). I've tried disabling the RDO device, didn't help. I tried plugging in headphones, didn't help. I tried to restart the program (google chrome, skyrim, and basically everything else) and that didn't help. 
Rebooting my computer temporarily fixes the problem, but it still occasionally goes to the Realtek sound device and I don't want to have to restart my computer every time it does.
I haven't updated or downgraded any sound drivers, and according to device manager I already have the latest drivers.
Any and all help is appreciated!

Hello everyone,

WSYX in Columbus, OH changed it's digital channel on August 30. I went to TV under settings and ran a scan so that Media Center would find the relocated channel. It does not find the new channel. I have even reset all the options and had Media Center start
from scratch, but it always finds the old, now non-working channel. How do I get Media Center to add the new channel? I have also tried adding the channel manually (under Guide). I know the new channel is UHF 48-1, but then Media Center asks for a two-digit
"assigned frequency" and I have no idea what that is. Googling hasn't helped either. I had my TV do a channel scan, and it had no problem finding the relocated channel. No such luck with Media Center. Any ideas?

I've seen alot of these realtek threads, searched around but didnt find anything that helped me, so please help me out guys!

Just got a new computer, first time on vista, very exciting times lol!

Everythings working fine, except my audio.

Now I have Logitech z-680 5.1 digital surround sound (old school but still awesome), their connected to my computer via the optical cable. My motherboard (gigabyte extreme X-58) has onboard HD sound. The amp that comes with my sound says its detected and displays 'Optical - digital' meaning that its detecting the digital output/input etc.

However there is no sound. I checked my drivers (which are the latest) and everything is working fine.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? I had a look in the Realtek HD audio manager and everything seems fine? There's a page for the digital output, but nothing on the digital input (just says status unlock).

Hi,

I've been running on W8 Consumer Preview since release without any trouble at all. Yesterday I installed the Release Preview and I've encountered a problem. My PC outputs to the amplifier via HDMI on my graphic card (Radeon HD 6700). The problem is that in the speaker configuration from playback devices only allows me to select 2 channel audio, and has no option for 5.1, so anything which tries to play 5.1 audio will result in no sound output.

I've installed the latest release of the Catalyst Control Center released 31 May (for Windows 8 RP). This was all working perfectly under the Consumer Preview.

Any idea how to get it to work?

Edit: I know HDMI is not selected as default device in the screenshot above. That's not an issue as XBMC always outputs from HDMI irrespective of my default choice.

A:Digital Audio (HDMI) only has 2 channel option

this is quite normal.

all digital outputs cannot be configured in windows - this is why you can only see 2 channels. this setting applies only for analog audio as it is processed by windows. As it is digital signal streamed to external decoder - windows setting doesn't mean anything, correct format is encoded by source app and decoded by ext. device.

i tested it on 2 different computers, with hdmi, digital coax and spdif.

if u get no sound over hdmi at all - try to install different driver.

Finally the guy told me it was a hardware issue with my digital audio out and to send my computer in to be fixed, except, the digital out recognizes that I have an SPDIF cable plugged in, it just wont detect the speakers.

Am I missing something in the set up or are the speakers just too old?

Also, we were musing about getting a new sound card, would it be worth it to install a new sound card just in general? or is that going to mess with my headphone jacks on the front of the computer?

What are you running the digital output into?

Do your speakers have an s/pdif digital input? If you're not using a digital receiver or a device with a digital input (it's hard to tell from your post) you won't get any sound.

my sound stopped working randomly a few days ago, where windows would detect that the device is there, but the realtek sound manager only allows digital output. same with windows mixer.

i've uninstalled and reinstalled a slew of realtek drivers (r1.90, 2.14, 2.16, 2.22), with varying results, but basically the same thing: the rear panel is not enabled or something along those lines. i currently have the r2.22 drivers installed, and all that it allows me to use is the digital output. i am completely at a loss here. not sure if it matters but i have an abit I-N73HD motherboard.

update: i just tried the drivers from the CD for my mobo (r1.73) with no luck, the same problem occurs.

i am wondering if maybe the problem is a physical one, but i am unsure if the ports were blown that the sound device would detect at all, or that the motherboard would be have more problems because of some type of shortage/over voltage that occured.

Alright; my Windows 7 Desktop is installed with a Realtek HD sound card, which is so utterly finnicky and completely useless when it comes to MIDI. I've tolerated it's slight problems for quite a while now, but it's come to a head; my computer cannot play Sibelius sound sets correctly (which is bad; Sibelius is a composing program, and if I can't play sound, then I have no clue what my music sounds like).

I looked a bit further into the problem to find out that, for some stupid reason, Sibelius' sound was playing on 'Realtek Digital Output' instead of 'Speakers' like everything else was. What was more interesting was, even if I couldn't hear anything, the sound bars turned green when I tested the device for sound... Well, OK. Maybe if I find out where 'Digital output' plugs in, I'll be able to get my compositions sounding good on my computer, right?

Well, no. The jack that I apparently need to plug into is the 'ATAPI Internal ATAPI Jack', which, judging by the name, requires me to open up my computer and somehow make it so that my headphones go through one of my six computer tower walls to get some sound, providing there even is a so-called ATAPI jack on the inside of my computer to begin with.

So, what I need here is a bit of a solution, which can be either one of two things:

A: Find out how I can prevent Sibelius from playing on 'Digital Output' and play instead on the much more sensible 'Speakers' option

or

B: Find out how I can make my speakers play 'Digital Output'... Read more

A:Realtek HD plight; Digital Output? What is this!?

I'm a musician and also have a recording studio using Sonar recording software. I looked at the Sibelius site and couldn't get much information from that site. They do have tech support, etc and that may be the best place to start - make sure you have the program configured correctly.

In reference to the sound card, you have to have it set to use your speakers in the Control Panel - Sound panel in order to hear audio in the speakers. If the Digital Out is selected (S/PDIF) then you have to have an external amplifier that will accept S/PDIF in order to hear anything.

If the Sibelius program uses MIDI to generate the sound (instruments) then the built in Microsoft GS Wavetable MIDI Synth, but this converts the MIDI to a form that can be used by the sound card (RealTek in this case) to generate analog audio.

ATAPI references the CD/DVD drives and not related to the Realtek or sound generation.

If everything else works OK, with the audio then the issue is probably with the applications program and a configuration.

Hi,

I have a Samsung laptop (Windows 7 x64, Realtek) connected to a TV via HDMI cable (audio over HDMI). Some time back, I had got HDMI Audio option (in Control Panel -> Sound) disabled so that I could use Realtek Digital Output (via headphone jack to Coax on my receiver) and it worked fine. Recently I played with these settings again due to change of receiver. I actually cant recall what started the problem, but Realtek Digital Output has disappeared. I have got 'show disabled/disconnected' option on but that did not help. The analog output (also Realtek) continues to show.

I rolled back, uninstalled, re-installed the Realtek HD driver a few times, but nothing has brought the Digital Output option back. I have seen a few posts on this issue, but have not seen any solution.

Thanks in advance.

A:Realtek Digital Output option disappeared

Uninstall the Realtek in the Device manager, but DO NOT check the box to uninstall the drivers. Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This fixes a lot of flakey problems and may take care of the missing Digital output.

However, one thing - on my Realtek, I have a separate Digital output connection, I don't use the digital out via my headphone out as you state - which is Analog and not Digital.

Good evening, folks!

I've recently bought an ASUS notebook, model K45a. After a few days, I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8, but I didn't like it, so I formatted it and reinstalled Windows 7 64 bits.

I've installed all the preferred drivers from the asus website, but there is no digital output! I got the newest Realtek Audio driver, and no digital output option available.

I've been to Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound > Manage sound devices and right-clicked to select "show disabled devices" and "show disconnected devices" (sorry if it's not 100% accurate, I'm using a portuguese Windows version and trying to translate it accordingly) and nothing.

All I get is the speakers, no digital option, which means no 5.1 signal through both spdif or hdmi to my home theater. When I open Realtek HD Manager, it only displays the analog jacks.

Any thoughts on this?

Hey everyone

I just got a set of Boston Acoustics Digital Media Theater Speakers. They're pretty nice for 1999. I'd probably go as far as saying they're the best set of computer 2.1s I've ever heard.

Problem is, I can currently only run them through analogue because I have no digital cable for them. The connect on the sub looks like either a digital coax or RCA connect, which should run out to the 1/8 in. mini digital out on my SoundBlaster Live! card.

The manual doesn't say exactly what it is anywhere. It shows a picture of a cable with a single RCA end and a 1/8 in. mini stereo end.

Problem is, every such cable I find is mono on the mini end.

Any ideas on where to find a such cable?

A:add digital output/input in realtek alc888b/alc887

The only way to get digital would be to install a separate sound card that had digital I/O jacks. There are none on the motherboard. The other obvious option would be to use a different motherboard that has that. I don't recall any that has both digital input and output; many have a digital output but a digital input is rare. I have a recording studio and my recording interface has the S/PDIF input and outputs but that is a different application (and much higher cost).

Install and use a PCIe sound card, and disable the on-board audio in the BIOS so it does not conflict (Windows will only allow one default audio playback device).

Hello everyone!

First of all, I'd like to apologize if this issue's been solved in another topic already, but I couldn't find anything - if such a topic exists, please feel free to post the link .

Now, onto the issue; first of all, the motherboard I am using is a Gigabyte GA-P67-UD5-B3. According to Gigabyte's website, it uses a Realtek ALC889 chip / codec. On the back of the motherboard are the usual 6x 3.5mm output / input jacks, as well as one TOSLINK digital output jack and a Coaxial digital output jack. I use the soundcard for:

1. Headphones plugged into the 3.5mm output jack
2. A/V Receiver plugged into the orange digital Coax output on the back of the motherboard (bolded as it's the source of my main issue)

Up until recently, I was a Windows 7 user - I would always download the audio drivers from Gigabyte's website and everything worked just as it was supposed to. I've now switched to Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit. And here's where the fun started.

As usual, I downloaded the appropriate Windows 8.1 64-bit audio drivers for my motherboard straight from Gigabyte's website. The install went through without a problem, but after restarting the computer, I realised that my A/V receiver wasn't receiving any sound signal. I opened up the "Playback devices" Window, to see if the proper output was selected as default. I realised that even though I have checked "Show disabled / disconnected devices" the output option (digital coax) I was looking for wasn't liste... Read more

A:Realtek ALC889 Win 8.1 - No digital coax output detected

First, the High Definition Audio drivers are the generic, basic function, drivers that Windows installs. It can have most of the functions or not depending on the sound hardware.

Have you tried the High Definition Audio Codecs (drivers) from the RealTek site? If not give them a try. The R2.75 drivers are what I'm using on my Win 7/Win 8.1/Win 10 installations. Everything that is available on the audio outputs show up. Realtek

As far as what is available on the outputs, primarily is a function of what the motherboard vendor decides to allow/provide. Its not a Microsoft issue or possibly not a RealTek issue. However, I doubt that you will get any help from RealTek as they will only support the hardware vendors that use their chips. There are generic/general drivers (referenced above) that they have on their site, however many PC/motherboard manufacturers modify them for their own requirements. If something does not work right, as in your case, Gigabyte is the one that should resolve your problems (if the motherboard is certified for Windows 8.1).

Power to the headphones is not a Windows issue, it again goes back to the hardware chip and drivers. With the generic High Definition Audio drivers, they do not specifically take advantage of everything the sound chip has to offer. You need the RealTek drivers.

I believe there is a problem with the internal sound processor on the motherboard since I am able to hear sound with headphones via the front headphone jack. I have re-installed drivers for it/rebooted, with no luck.
Not sure why, but on the sound options (attached pic) it set my realtek digital output as my default communications device, and when i set it to the default device, I couldn't hear sound from the front headphone jack.
In the realtek hd audio manager, it shows that something is plugged into the back panel, but like I said, no sound will play.
Tried disabling front jack detection, but nothing changed

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi all

I used to have a Gateway PC with a set of really decent Boston Acoustics BA735 speakers on it. I've upgraded to a new PC with a P8Z68-V motherboard that has the onboard Realtek ALC892 audio. (I'm using Windows 7 64 bit) I want to connect my BA735 speakers. I know that these speakers are digital speakers and so need to be connected to a digital input. They are NOT SPDIF however. The old computer had a Creative Soundblaster Audio card that you could set to analogue or digital output. I know the Realtek ALC892 has digital capability, but I need to be able to output this on the main speaker channel. The cable that goes to the BA735 speakers has a 3.5mm Jack connection for plugging into the normal speaker output from the PC.

When I look at the sound settings in control panel, there are 3 choices of playback device (Speakers, Realtek Digital Output and Realtek Digital Output (Optical)) I'm a little confused as to why there are two digital playback devices. Obviously the optical one is the SPDIF connection, but what's the other. I thought I could use it to output to the BA735 digital speakers, but there seems to be no digital output connection for it. I can make it the default device and the little green bars jump up and down to tell me that audio is playing, but I get no sound if I plug into the speaker sockets.

Can I use digital speakers with the Realtek ALC892 onboard sound?

One is a digital coax connection and the other is optical. Not sure why it is showing both though, as there is no coax connection on the motherboard. Unless one of the analogue jacks can be changed to digital from somewhere within the Realtek control panel.

You still have the old computer? If so you could always pull the old sound card out of it and use it in the new.

I just purchased a new digital camera and when I went to install the driver cd that came with it, it said the driver is not compatible with my version of Windows (7). Is there anyway that I can find a new driver? I'm not very knowledgable with drivers and if this possible. Or if not a driver is there anyway that I can get the photos off the camera to my computer...took alot of photos I don't want to lose.

The camera is from a company called Digital Concepts, the driver cd has a company called Sakar International on it. I hope thats all the info that would be needed for someone to help me!

A:Digital Concepts Digital Camera

Hello Alabama Belle, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Do you have the model number of the camera? You can also check at the manufacturer's website to see if they may have any drivers available to download that may work for you.

In addition, if you have a media card reader installed on your computer, you can take the card out of the camera and plug it into the media card reader instead to upload your pictures.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Greetings,

I am using the X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty sound card.

My headphones are the Tritton AXPro headphones. The "Dolby Decoder Box" that comes with the headphones shows the sound as "PL" instead of "Digital".

I have installed Windows 7 RC 64 bit and the latest Beta drivers from Creative's website. My problem is that I can't get digital to work. Anyone know how?

A:Digital Sound

Hey there,

You need to make sure you are setting this stream in the Creative interface panel and not just in the Windows control panel...or the setting will not take hold.

How do I get digital output on my soundcard out of the DVD ROM? Does the DVD ROM have to have support for it? I think I have a SPDIF slot on my soundcard. I read something about it elsewhere but never followed up.

Is it better quality than regular sound output, analog I think?
How do I play files saved my PC, mp3, using digital output?
Whenever I select digital output only on my sound card configuration, SoundBlaster Audigy mp3+, then I get no sound.

I just bought a new Dell Dimension 4400 w/Windows XP. Soundmax digital integrated audio. I get no sound from the BA 735 digital speakers that I hooked up to the new computer. This is a subwoofer and 2 satellites. I DO get sound from the 2 harmon Kardon speakers that came with the new computer.

Likewise, I DO get sound with the BA 735's when they are hooked up to my Athlon 950 with the Soundblaster sound card. But when I hook up the harmon kardons to the Athlon, I get no sound.
The sound is terrible with the new Dell and the harmon kardons. I would entertain the idea of buying new speakers and/or sound card. But I am scared that what I buy might not be compatible.

Is this a digital vs. non-digital issue?
Or some kind of settings issue?
I'm not sure about the integrated audio, I can find no info on it.
Any help, or a link to a site with info will be appreciated.

Hi,

I did a little seach on the dell site to find the specs on your audio

Availability by model

SmartStep 100D

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Card type Integrated

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wavetable voices 64 SW

Speaker Support 2 channel out analog

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note the last . Seems your card is analog, and supports analog speakers. That is probably why your Digital BA 735 speakers will not work with it.

The controller Chip is an ADI 1885. I cannot find on the dell site how to disable it, but most likely you can disable it by entering the Setup/ BIOS and looking around for it. Otherwise, it will be a jumper on the Main Board.

A:5.1 digital sound

Not sure if this works, but if your receiver has HDMI inputs, you'll need to connect the PC to the HDMI input on the receiver, then output the video signal from the receiver to the PC. Again, don't know if that works, as my receiver doesn't have HDMI inputs.

With that said, my HTPC is setup as follows:

*DVI to HDMI video output from PC video card to LCD TV
*Optical audio output (toslink) from PC soundcard to receiver

This setup requires that your sound card has digital/optical outputs. I use BGears Enspirer sound card as it has a the optical output port already included, no need for additional gender changing cables. Unfortunately, this card is no longer produced. I think Creative has a couple of cards with optical output ports.

Hi, I am in charge of our audio/video system for our church. What I am aiming to do is, pipe in the audio from our sound board to our laptop. I know this can be done, by USB, I hooked in an older kind of slower laptop into it, and the playback into the board was fine. But things went south when I grabbed a mic and tried to make a test recording into the SONAR software on the laptop. When I played back the recording either on the laptop or thru the house system, I could hear voice but it was all staticky and distorted, almost like there was an input turned up to high. I played with it some but never could lose the static. Here is the mixer board we are currently working with .. Allen&Heath ZED24 .. I wont bother to list the specs of the laptop I tested with, other than besides the fact of the system itself being just over a year old, the processor was only an older single core celeron with 1g of ram. But that part dont so much matter because I am cleared to buy a brand new laptop for this application, which is what I need a little guidance on.My plan is to continue to use the USB out feature of the board to record things like sermons and speakers and live singing performances. Is this a good idea to do thru USB? Even with getting a brand new i7 machine? The playback from PC into the board isnt so much a problem, it works either thru the USB or line out to audio cable into the board. If the USB is a bad idea, can someone kindly give me a hardware list of what I will need ... Read more

A:Digital sound into laptop

I suspect your problem will likely resolve with a decent spec computer. SONAR (even LE) needs a reasonable system, the spec for 8.5 LE says:"Minimum System RequirementsProcessor Speed Intel Pentium 4 1.3 GHz or AMD Athlon XP 1500+""Recommended System RequirementsProcessor Speed Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz [EM64T] or AMD Athlon XP 2800+ or better"And things like the hard drive speed and fragmentation state contributes also, as do other running processes.One way to check would be to see if a less demanding application like Audacity sees the USB input and records correctly.

Note: I've also posted this on the Goldwave Forum in case there is a Goldwave solution.

I've just switched to Windows 7 on a new PC. I own a phono pre-amp with both analogue line and digital USB output.
When I plug the pre-amp into the PC it installs as a "Microphone (USB Audio Codec)". Clicking Record starts at an absurdly high level, almost as if line input was plugged into a mic socket. So the Input Device volume has to be reduced to about 20% to get a sensible recording level.
With my previous PC (Windows XP), Goldwave recognized the USB device as a digital input and (I assume) took the bit stream straight into recording; there was no input volume level available, as I would expect.
But now it looks as if the USB input is being put through the PC sound card, converted to analogue and delivered to Goldwave whereupon it is re-digitized for recording.
If this is so it makes a mockery of trying to use a USB digital source. Should I be finding a different codec somewhere?
I'd appreciate any comments / ideas about this.

A:USB digital sound input

I don't think it's being put through the PC soundcard but rather through Windows audio subsystem. In this case I think Windows is seeing it as a USB microphone... and must be adding an extra layer of software to add level controls... you would not expect that on a digital input. I doubt if it's being converted to analog, there are digital level controls but the signal will lose some integrity.

Right click on the Microsoft Speaker icon and select "recording devices", right click again in the center of the window, even though it looks like it's selecting a device. Check both "Show Disabled Devices" and "Show Disconnected Devices". By any chance is there a digital input for the preamp, if so, try setting that as the default recording device. Also, check the enhancements tab for both recording and playback devices to make sure there is nothing else affecting the digital audio stream.

Hi people.

This is my first post on this site and I am new to the world of Windows 7 after upgrading from xp on Sunday.

I have scoured this forum and the net in search of an answer to my problem, but non seem to match it correctly.

Before I upgraded I had sound coming down my coaxial line from my onboard sound to my cinema amp. I also had a backup analogue cable going from the front speaker connector to an analogue connector on the back of the cinema amp. The analogue line has always been poor in terms of volume. I usually have to turn the volume to max to even hear it properly. The coaxial delivered perfect sound.

After the upgrade, I downloaded the new realtek software from the asus website for my motherboard. The old analogue line works but has the same sound issue but the coaxial line doesnt seem to have any sound coming down it at all. The realtek program detects the line is plugged in, but no sound is being sent down it.

Help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Dale.

If you haven't check in the Windows Playback properties, and make sure it is set to SPDIF/digital out. Also you can only use one audio output at a time in 7/Vista.

Hello, TechSupportForum.

After i re-installed Windows 7 on my PC, there has been a ton of drivers missing. I have though been able to find and install most of them, but there is still a few that are missing or outdated, and those cause quite some trouble on my PC.

My problem is that after i re-installed Windows 7, i have had some bad troubles with my digital sound (SPDIF). Just after the re-installation, and a few weeks after that, it has worked, but if i do not have a running sound source all the time, the sound suddenly shuts down, and i have to restart my PC for it to work again.

So i basically had a Windows Media Player running all the time, running with a song, but with the volume of WMP at 0 %. So that sound source was the reason i actually still had sound.

Now just today, i can't make it work at all. The sounds shut down (because i forgot to have a running sound source), so i restarted my PC, and that used to fix it, but not this time. Now there's no sound at all. I have tried to change the kHz in "properties" of the SPDIF sound device, changing formats. I went in advanced settings to try and change the "bit rate" and "kHz" but then it just says: "The format isn't supported by the device", and it says that with every single one of them.

So i have no digital surround sound, the only way i can have sound with this headset, is by using the "USB sound" it also offers. But there is no way i have spent so much ... Read more

I have a GA-EX58-UD3R Rev 1.6 mobo in a PC connected to a Samsung PS63C7000 3D TV via HDMI and by Stereo Analogue, Coax and Optical to a Yamaha RX-V567 receiver/amplifier.

The mobo runs the Realtek audio system supplied with the mobo, which has 5.1 Analogue outputs, coax and Optical out.

On the receiver I match the HDMI input to one of three Audio inputs; Analogue (AV5), Optical (AV4) or Coax (AV3). Sound only comes out of the Analogue connection, which is stereo only.

When I look at the sound on the PC it appears that a signal is being sent to the receiver. (through a spectrum analyser)

I tried reinstalling the sound drivers for the mobo, with no luck. I don't have a spare sound card with Optical. I tried replacing both the optical and coax cables.

When I plug the PC into a set of PC speakers it works fine.

I saw this post .. digital sound issue, but I had already made sure only one sound option was connected at any one time.

oh, I am running Win7 x64 Ult.

Any ideas?

A:No digital sound out of external sound system

There can be issues with sound output when you are using HDMI sound. In MOST cases when you use the HDMI sound it is set as the default playback device and thus the PC's sound card (or integrated audio) output is muted. Normally you can't have both, one or the other.

If you disconnect the cable for HDMI, at the PC, and select whatever you want for default playback device in the Sound Panel, do you get the S/PDIF or whatever other sound you want?

I changed out the components for my HP Digital Entertainment Center.
The DEC is HP z555 on a windows XP platform w/SP2.
After the connections were made, I was getting video only. There were no sounds when Windows opened or for My TV, DVD or CD.
I kept futzing with volume settings then finally heard faint sounds coming from the back speakers when I hit a TV network that keeps really high sound. Thinking the speaker wire contacts into the receiver (Pioneer Audio Video/Multi-channel Receiver #VSX-D514) were the issue, I removed and reinserted the speaker wires. I got sound from left, right and back, none from the woofer...But I got sound.
Three days later I connected the High Def antennae to the system. I lost sound again. (The video from the Olevia LCD is beautiful)
The Devise Manager indicated there are no problems with the Realtech Hi Def Audio Driver (version #5.10.0.5172)
It was suggested by a techie friend that I might try getting a driver update...The driver that HP showed was #5.10.0.5123. Though older, maybe this is the one HP wants? Still No sound with that driver.
HP support suggested a windows update for XP #KB935448. Still no sound.
I checked Volume settings again. There were no mutes on the DEC, the receiver or Monitor. Windows Audio Service is enabled. Bios shows audio as auto.
I did a System Restore. Still no sound.
Now what?...The DEC is under warranty but I wold love the find the error of my ways...
 

A:No sound from HP Digital Entertainment Center

hmm? try uninstall the driver then reinstall it or new and better one. Try checking the sound card model and then check on the HP site for a newer driver.

another would be codecs? you might not have the required codecs to play the video?!?

i can't think of anything else sorry.
