No sound on TV nor computer using an HDMI cable.

by lshadowmonkeyl / February 24, 2013 7:01 AM PST

I just got a HD PVR 2 and a new TV for my xbox, after getting everything hooked up i tried to record some gameplay, but there was no game audio. Im using the arcsoft showbiz program that came with it, but i don't see how that would be the problem.
I looked all over the web to find an answer but got nowhere. I looked in the playback devices on my computer and tried to find the HDMI output; I tried to 'show disabled devices' but still nothing came up.
I'm just kinda burnt out looking for the answer I need to ask people who are actually good with this stuff.
Any help that could be provided would be much appreciated.

So nothing shows in Device Manager for your onboard hardware, VID/HDMI? Typically should be under Display Adapters.
