In their case they have the PS3 composite to the TV and "trying" HDMI for audio and it fails. Your setup is just another possible connection that I would take a bet would fail as well.

Is there any document you can share that this should work?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
