Gigabyte HDMI output to Yamaha receiver - no sound output

Q: Gigabyte HDMI output to Yamaha receiver - no sound output

GA-890GPA-UD3H (rev. 3.1)

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-890GPA-UD3H (rev. 3.1)

(Note 3) Simultaneous output for DVI-D and HDMI is not supported.

What I'm trying to do is output just my sound to the receiver via HDMI cable, but still use the DVI to my monitor for video. From the note above taken from the MB specs, sounds like this is not possible.

This is new business to me and wondering how others do this, seems little information I can find. I am ordering a HDMI to DVI cable so I can disconnect the DVI cable from the computer and instead run both video and sound through HDMI to the receiver, then the video to the monitor. Hoping this works.

If all fails then I am relegated to separate digital through S/PDIF optical link, to my receiver. According to the experts this is less than ideal since now, the multi-channel dolby and DTS signals can only be received via HDMI.

Wondering if I get a Blu-ray player for my computer how this is going to all work out. Hoping that HDMI to DVI cable does the trick.

Anyone with experience with this kind of set-up and the aforementioned hardware greatly appreciated.

And Happy NEW YEAR!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Gigabyte HDMI output to Yamaha receiver - no sound output

As you have a separate video card, its capabilities should determine how the video works, not the motherboard. The video is routed to the video card.

If you had some type of integrated Video on the motherboard then the motherboard's specs would apply. For example, I have an Intel i7 3770 CPU and this model has built in Intel HD4000 video which is routed to motherboard video connectors and thus the motherboard would determine how the video is distributed. However, I'm using a separate video card and thus that determines how video is distributed.

My sound card (SoundBlaster Live, 5.1 digital) has an output for 6-channel surround sound. The output says its connected as follows:

"DIGITAL OUT (Front and Rear SPDIF digital outputs) via 4-pole 3.5mm minijack on rear bracket"

Here's the manual:

http://www.americas.creative.com/support/manuals/Files/SB_Live_5_1_Users_Guide.pdf

The guy at Radioshack says to use a 3.5mm to RCA left and right speaker output. But I'm not sure that's right because how would that give front and rear sound? I want to run this to a Receiver.

Anyone know what kind of connection cable to use for that? Can you give me a link with a picture.

Thanks.

Hi, I've searched all over the place for a similar scenario but can't seem to find a solution.

The short: I can't get my pc to send an audio signal via HDMI to my Yamaha receiver. Video gets sent fine. The reason it won't send audio is because my Yamaha receiver is connected to a DVI projector and my pc can see that. Is there any way to trick or force my pc to send the HDMI audio signal for the sake of my receiver being able to receive it?

My HDMI playback device says, NVIDIA high definition audio not plugged in.

PC: HP G60
OS: WU64

Receiver: yamaha HTR-8063

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

A:HTPC and Yamaha receiver hdmi issue

I've downloaded the latest stable driver release from NVIDIA, but now my laptop won't send a video signal to my projector, it does however indicated that my HDMI connection is fully functional, including my audio. It will not play sounds through hdmi though.

Currently downloading a fresh BETA release from NVIDIA.... and if that doesn't work I'm going to go back to the drivers listed on the HP site for my machine. Hopefully something will work.

Hey all,

I have a problem with the HDMI output on my laptop. I've tried to research the problem and for the most part the answer is to set the default playback device to the HDMI output. I do this, and even when I click the 'Test' button, the bell rings through the speakers of the TV, along with other system noises like error popups. However, when I try to watch movies or listen to music there is no sound from the TV. I can even be playing a song, press the 'Test' button, and it rings just fine.... but no music. It's making me and I need some help!

Hi all.

I sucessfully got bootcamp to work on my iMac, and the only issue that I have run across is that I do not have any sound whatsoever coming out of my speakers.

The sound icon just remains at the speaker with a red cross, and no matter what I do, I just can't get it to work.
In Device Manager, the sound device that is being used is 'AMD High Definition Audio Device', and I can't seem to find an update for it anywhere. Under the sound area of control panel, if I go to the playback tab it says that the only available playback device is 'AMD HDMI Output', and it says that is "not plugged in".

Would anybody have any advice whatsoever? I honestly don't know what to do at this point, I have tried to search on this topic but it just always seems to lead me to a completely different problem that doesn't help me.

Thank you very much in advance.

Hello everyone,
I have a bit of a problem here. My AMD HDMI Output Audio Device is not working even though its set on default on playback devices and the computer and monitor sound is on. Was wondering whats wrong here.
My apologies if there were similar threads about this, as I just made an account and didn't get to check them up. Although I did search google and there were few cases with people that were using NVIDIA, since I'm not using it I would like to know how to solve this. I'll keep in touch and add additional info if needed. Thanks in advance.

Hi: Probably, but you haven't provided any details regarding what model notebook you have. Plus most new HP notebooks run W10 64 bit, so I'm not sure if you really have a 32 bit OS or a 64 bit OS. You can see this related discussion for what the problem probably is and how to fix it, but you will need to use the Intel graphics driver from your notebook's support page, if it has an Intel processor. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/No-Sound-through-TV-connected-to-laptop-via-HDMI/m-p/585...

A:Can't get sound to work through hdmi output through my tv!

I do this with my TV too

The first place I would look is to make sure that Windows detected the HDMI display properly.

Look in Device manager with the TV connected and turned on.
Click the Windows Orb (used to be the START button in XP)
Type
Device Manager
and you should see a link to click for it.

In the Device Manager window see if there is anything under
Other Devices
or if any items have a question mark or exclamation mark on them.

If you see anything like that let us know what it is and someone can tell you what to do next.(it depends on what exactly you see)

Also what kind of video card are you plugging the HDMI into? I use an ATI card.

I have a mobo that supports optical out, along with a GTX295 that has HDMI. The problem is, I broke the S/PDIF connector pins on the GPU, so I can't connect it to the mobo pins. I need this cable for sound-over-HDMI to work, correct?

The second question - I am connecting to TV and home theatre, by the way - is what's the go with the optical? I did try for about half an hour, but no dice. The Yamaha receiver simply didn't get any sound out of it (TV optical out works). I did change audio output in windows, tried 'HDMI - no audio' mode in Nvidia settings, etc.

Is there some sort of option that is overriding my mobo optical out with the (faulty) HDMI out on GPU? I'd love to get this working..


Edit: Third question.. I am of the belief that the optical will only give me 5.1 in games if the receiver and game are both in a supported format, e.g. Dolby something-something. Is HDMI bound by these same rules?

I am astonished by how primitive the Windows 7 sound system is.

The setup:
An HDMI cable connects a Radeon HD 6870 to my Samsung TV.
I use the TV for both video and audio output.

Windows seems to detect whether the output device supports audio and how many audio channels it has. The problem is, it does that in a very unwise way.

If I turn my TV on, and then start Windows, things work fine.

Now, if I start Windows, and THEN turn my TV on, I get no audio. The only "fix" is to logoff and login again so that it re-checks the TV (now turned on), and sees it supports stereo audio output.

Even worse: if I turn my TV on, start Windows and for some reason turn the TV off, the sound gets disabled as well!

I have never seen a problem like this surface from the order of turning things on.

Sometimes I like to plug my PC into my Blu-Ray Home Theater. The wiring is very similar:
HDMI cable from the Radeon into a Sony BDV-E280 Home Theater.

It supports 5.1 audio. My card supports up to 7.1 channels output through HDMI, and I have tested two different HDMI cables.

However, added to the previously specified audio problems, for some reason Windows thinks the output source (the 5.1 home theater) has only two channels, so all I get is STEREO.

I have tried updating drivers, even downloading different drivers, searching for some hacks that could solve it at all...

I found a thread once of a guy who had the exact same problem and got it to work on Linux ... Read more

A:HDMI sound output problems

Just to add to the drama: today I left my TV on the whole evening, uselessly wasting its capacitors and shortening the screen lifetime, while I was out so that I wouldn't have to deal with the sound problem when I get back home.

That's a major OS design flaw and I haven't seen anyone that had any of these problems ever finding a solution.
Your help may help many others as well.

I don't get this error message when connected to my other TV(s). Sound and Picture works perfectly fine, yet the sound doesn't work on my new TV.

After connecting to my speakers the output automatically shifts to the speakers, however there is no audio. When I open the volume control panel it shows audio output being sent to the speakers. So far, the only thing that has resolved this issue is a restart, however after restarting no settings changed from the time when the issue occurred.

I've just received my Laptop back from repair and all seems to be well, I had my screen panel replaced, gpu replaced(from 570m to 670m), new hard drive and CPU fan. However the problem I seem to be having is that internal speakers are completely not working.

I can see that bolume bar in for my internal speakers is actually changing but there is no sound. My system is not muted (unless there's some secret button I'm missing out on) No matter what i try it seems that sound will not work through my internal speakers, I've plugged in my Razer headset(Kraken) that works with my other computer but is not even detected when plugged in the Audio jacks of my laptop(Doesnt even pick up the microphone) and this did work before I sent it out for repair. Sound only works through HDMI output into a TV/Monitor.

Now I'm not sure if this some software configuration that I have to do or something physical with the hardware but I would prefer to not have to send it back as it would take a month to get back to me and also the repair company states that if the problem is due to software then they will charge.

I assume it's a conflict that Realtek HD audio manager is having or something but none of my devices show up on the RealtekHD Audio Manager nor do I get a pop up when a device is detected(which is what normally would of happened)

A:AMD HDMI output not plugged in,no sound card detected in dxdiag

The AMD HDMI is ONLY for HDMI audio and not for regular PC audio. Unless there is an HDMI cable plugged in, you will get the no cable plugged in notice.

Please post the motherboard manufacturer and model number. Without that I can't say what sound is on the PC's motherboard (for regular PC audio). But, if the PC audio is enabled in the BIOS and is Windows 7 compatible, Windows would install the generic, basic function, HD Audio Driver (Codec) and the PC sound would work. If the sound chip on the motherboard is not Windows 7 compatible (an old Win XP hardware) you will have to install a sound card to have PC audio.

The DX Diag, because the sound is not there, does not help.

Hello everyone, you guys seem to know your stuff so Ill ask for your help:

I have a frustrating problem with my brand new XPC Shuttle computer. Everything works fine, just not sound. I tried hooking up the computer via HDMI to a TV for the first time as I didnt have a monitor - sound works just fine. Then later I removed the casing and installed 4 more Gbs of RAM for a total of 8. In order to do this I had to remove and reinsert the videocard. Computer was never on during that procedure.

Now, I cannot for the love of God make this computer produce sound trough the (correctly) connected audio jacks while it is hooked up to a proper pc monitor - Ive tried with numerous speaker/headphone devices which all are in mint condition (confirmed with other devices).

My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. In the sound manager down in the corner it said at first only "Realtek Digital Output". I figured this could mean that somehow, using HDMI cable (as it was the first monitor I used the system on) that the system defaulted on a HDMI output for sound. It would not show bars for anything else, and Speaker/Headphone devices were listed as "not connected" - despite clearly being so. It seemed at first like a problem with drivers - classic stuff. Please dont go there: Drivers are installed, up to date.

Then I launched Realtek HD audio manager and checked the box "Disable front panel jack detection" - as instructed by the program in case I had proble... Read more

I have a DELL laptop, model is Inspiron 15-7569. I have updated all drivers (BIOS, Intel Graphics 520 driver, Realtek driver, etc) using the tool "DELL update", which is shipped with the laptop.
My Speaker is Vizio SB4051-C0. I used "speaker test" function on its remote, and I can hear all 5 speakers and the subwoofer working correctly.
But when I connected the laptop and vizio speaker via HDMI cable, and then played a youtube video called "5.1 Dolby Surround Test", I found that the two rear speakers and subwoffer not working. Does this mean my laptop does not support 5.1 channel over HDMI? If yes, then can I buy an external USB audio interface? I found a cheap one in ebay called "Behringer UCA202 Audio Interface". It has optical output but no HDMI output. Although my vizio speaker supports optical input, the user manual states that HDMI has better voice quality than optical.
Thanks a lot for help!

Is there any driver / software (or hardware) available that can bridge the audio output for both the hdmi audio video card and the on-board sound card so that i can get sound from these two sources simultaneously?

using the audio settings in xp it only gives you one option to play sounds via one output, on my system one being the hdmi (ATI audio video card) into my HDTV which then cuts off the sound via the speaker system from my 5.1 audio from the motherboard. or vice versa.

can anyone help as i would like to have sound output from my HDTV and also the 5.1 speaker system at the same time? Cheers

Hi, I am new to this forum and do not know to much about computers, so after hours of searching for a solution I decided I would try asking someone with a lot more knowledge then me. I have a Gateway with Vista Home Premium 32 bit operating system with SigmaTel high definition Audio CODEC driver with the latest upgrade. I am trying to use my s/pdif output on my computer to have audio over my home surround sound speakers via my home receiver. But when I plug it in and switch my receiver to the appropriate place I get nothing out of the speakers. From the cord I am getting the red light so I know it is getting the "power" but I am just not getting any sound. In the control panel under sound all the appropriate boxes and devices are enabled and say they are working, but I still can't get it to work. Does anyone know why this is? Is this a software/driver problem or do I need to "flip a switch" in some window I don't know about or what? My two front speakers with the single green plug work, but having them plugged in or not does not effect whether my receiver has sound or not. I have tried several different plug-ins on my receiver and none of them will pick it up, but they work with other devices, i.e. dvd player, and cable box. So I have eliminated a problem with the receiver. Any help with this would be much appreciated thank you in advance.

A:s/pdif output does not work on receiver

You have to switch to ?digital output? from the sound applet and then ? "set as default". Vista works simultaneously with the sound devices.
To have DTS or DD you have to use ffdshow or vista codec pack.

So I currently have a realtek integrated and rocketfish (rebranded creative soundblaster) stand alone card. I just purchased a new Yamaha receiver and have run an optical cable from my rocketfish card to my optical in on the receiver. It seems that windows 7 only supports stereo output via any SPDIF output device. Has anyone else experienced this issue? Drivers are up to date and windows is set for 5.1 output.

Hi all. Just got a new computer. Vista 64, Asus Mobo p5q-e with soundmax. Trying to use digital output to my Sony reciever... no sound. I get sound using line out to R&L on receiver and have tested receiver digital in to make sure it works.

I downloaded latest Asus Soundmax drivers as well.

I set it as default as well.

Under windows/control panel/sound, it shows as stereo, no sound output with test.

I downloaded and installed vista codec (32 and 64), not that I thought it would help...lol

Anyone have this problem or have any suggestions?

Hello guys!

I recently ran into a problem with my main LCD TV(I need to replace the power supply.) I use that LCD TV for my desktop computer, and right now all I have is my laptop. I use synergy to control both computers. However now it doesn't matter because I cannot see the desktop portion. Is there anyway for me to output my desktop computer to my laptop monitor?

Both my Desktop and Laptop have HDMI input. I also have the HDMI cord on hand right now I just don't know how I'd go about setting it up. I'd like to use synergy to control the desktop AND have it's output be on the laptop until my power supply arrives and I can fix my TV.

No video output on iGPU or GPU on Desktop. Motherboard not posting. GPU fan spins at 100%. I've tried removing all RAM sticks and tried each one by itself. I've removed all hard drives. I've reset GPU and tried without GPU. I feel like I've tried everything at this point. It's a new power supply. I've tried two other power supplies as well.

I can't get Dual BIOS to kick in, either (no switch on this board so I have to use the power cycling trick).

I'm trying to hook up my TV with my computer, and for the most part it's working. The video goes through and I get how to control it and everything. The only thing not working is the sound.

I'm using an HDMI to HDMI cable, and like I said the video is fine. Also, when the cable is plugged into my boyfriend's laptop, the sound comes out of the TV.

So this must mean the problem is with my computer specifically. Although, this computer is only a month old, so I wouldn't think anything is out of date.

I have no idea what's relevant, so I don't know what to post screenshots of, but I've read tons of other threads with the same issues but none of their solutions seem to work for me.

A:Realtek HDMI Output ATI HDMI Audio -Not Plugged In-

Info on your computer would help. We can only talk in generalites or suggestions without it. In most cases, if you have a full HDMI port with both audio and video, when you plug in an HDMI cable Windows changes the default audio playback device from the "Speakers" (your PC sound card) to "HDMI".

In your case the ATI (now called AMD) should be the device that is feeding the video and audio.

As your PC is only 1 month old, the PC vendor's tech support should be the ones to call since you haven't been able to find a solution to date.

I've just got a new laptop a Samsung RV418, which has a HDMI output. I've tried to get a picture from the laptop to my TV but with no success. The Fn4 key only toggles between the laptop screen and an external monitor but no picture arrives on the TV.

Any suggestions on how to get the HDMI output. I've checked the HDMI cable is OK and that i have specified the right HDMI input on the TV. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate.

Hey, i have an nVidia Geforce 9200 integrated graphics card in my Acer X1301 system (Windows 7 32 bit). Its being used as a home theatre system that has a plasma screen plugged in via HDMI cable and the tv is connected to a home theatre system via a optical cable.

I am having trouble getting the computer to send 5.1 audio... i have plenty of 6 channel movie files and DVD's but none of them play, if i look at the sound device in device manager 'High Definition Audio Device' it is set as the default and works find using stereo... the device details say that the max channels is 2, i have tried nVidia audio device drivers, Realtek HD device drivers but all only allow 2 channels, is there a way around this???

Ive spent the last 8 hours straight trying to fix this so any help would be great!!!
