Question

Playing audio from CPU to stereo

Hi, I have my Toshiba laptop hooked up to my Onyko receiver via HDMI and, up until recently, the sound was coming through fine when playing music. For some reason, no sound now comes through. The HDMI port on my laptop seems to be functioning fine as content plays through the TV when connected. The receiver appears to be functioning as I'm playing music through it via Bluetooth from my iPhone. I'm at a dead end. Please help!

Windows updates screw up things frequently

That would be my bet on what has happened.

First reboot, then try two or three different audio applications (VLC, WMP, iTunes, etc.) just to get a baseline. Also test the audio driver settings in windows itself. Usually there's a 'test' mode.

Double check the digital sound input modes on the Onkyo too. Every once and awhile I have to adjust this if someone in the house bumps the audio mode buttons on my older DS595. YMMV.

Thanks for the suggestions Pepe7. I tried what you had suggested but I still seem to have an issue. For some reason when I 'test' the audio driver, no sound is produced. Any other suggestions are certainly appreciated.

You didn't mention

If you told Windows to play audio over HDMI. If Bluetooth works, why not play music over for music since HDMI might DEMAND that video and audio be sent.
