DVD HDMI audio problem on Samsung LN-T4061F

I'm having a problem with my Samsung LN-T4061F LCD TV that I can't figure out.

STB -> HDMI -> LN-T4061F LCD TV = audio works
DVD player -> RCA -> LN-T4061F LCD TV = audio works
Vista laptop -> HDMI -> LN-T4061F LCD TV = audio works for everything except dvds (using Windows media player)

DVD player -> HDMI -> LN-T4061F LCD TV = no audio
Vista laptop -> HDMI -> LN-T4061F LCD TV = no audio only when playing DVDs in Windows media player

So, the only common thread I can find is that when watching a DVD either on my laptop or on my DVD player, if I'm connecting via HDMI, I can't get any audio out of the LN-T4061F LCD TV. Otherwise audio works fine via HDMI.

Any ideas? Thanks
