Media Center Sound from PC DVD

by rookie2bass / December 31, 2008 9:10 PM PST

I have the following units connected with a HDMI cable:
Samsung LN40A530 HDTV
Gateway p6830 fx laptop, Vista

Watched a downloaded movie last night with sound using itunes. Windows sounds also come across to the TV fine.

However, a DVD movie running on the pc (using windows media center) does not have sound on the TV.

Any suggestions?

I've had the same problem - no audio when playing a DVD with Windows Media Center on a PC.
