Sound with HDMI

When plugged into my TV set via HDMI the screen is visible but with no sound. Windows Media Player however works perfectly. Are there settings to be changed to enable Audacity to transmit the sound?

You’re missing a step. What’s plugged into your TV with HDMI? Typically, HDMI systems need to “know” and “recognize” media. This is to prevent theft of intellectual property and it causes no end of problems for home recordists. We installed HDMI conference display systems at work and half the laptops dropped dead.

To koz: thank you for your trouble: it is a standard laptop using Windows 7.

To set the output (playback) device in Audacity, look in the Device Toolbar.
