I recently upgraded my 6 year old laptop to an Inspiron 5502 but when I went to hook it up to my TV for a larger display via HDMI, I noticed that the sound was playing through the laptop speakers instead of the TV speakers.
My old laptop did not have an issue with this and detects the TV just fine, clearly switching the audio source back and forth as I plug and unplug the HDMI cable.
Things I have tried so far (in no particular order):
Other things of note:
In summary, I'm thinking something internal to the new laptop that handles sound is defective and I'm considering asking for a replacement. If anyone here can offer suggestions, I'm willing to try but I'm about at the end of my patience here. Thanks.
Do you get a choice of your TV as an audio sink? On my ASUS which I have connected to my TV, I get choice of the laptop's speakers or the LG TV.
