M4A89GTD, no sound via HDMI

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
K, I know that this one gets beaten to death in Vista and 7, so I try to keep it short....

I have two HD audio drivers for some reason. One is AMD High Definition Audio. Other is Realtek HDMI audio. The realtek one shows as plugged in and ready. The AMD one does not.

Well, as the title states, I have no HDMI audio.

I have played with settings in BIOS, but the only thing that I believe is pertinent is that my SPDIF OUT is set to HDMI.

Any ideas?


Also, If I disable either driver, no difference, still nothing.

unistall both realtek HDMI and AMD hdmi drivers, and get the latest Realtek HDMI drives from Realtek site(the ones in red text).

you basically have 2 sets of drivers installed for the same thing. might wanna use ccleaner to remove leftover realtek drivers.

i had the same board as you, mae sure you bios setting are correct or HDMI wont work. i dont remember what setting i used sorry.

Ok well I tried installing the 'red letter' drivers after uninstalling all audio drivers. ATI HDMI Audio device was what the drivers were called, makes sense at least.

Anyways, it fails to install everytime. Windows filled in with the basic HD audio drivers when I restarted. It lists TWO Hdmi audio devices again in the setup, and the top one will never recognize, as usual.

Two things worth noting... before ending up with my fourth motherboard... my third one I managed to get HDMI to work with a program called HD Vdeck. I don't even know how I got ahold of it now, but it was able to switch my SPDIF to HDMI setting from software and would make it work. Anyways. I can't find the program anymore, since my latest motherboard the program wouldn't even boot. I don't know.

And the second thing worth noting is that when I plug in my TV.... ATI catalyst recognizes it as a "DVI to HDMI" connection and recommends using seperate audio connection (obviously since DVI has no audio), but we both know I am using an HDMI cable.

I almost wondering if this has to do with my TV. I know for a fact that this TV already gives my computer issues, since it will NOT boot with this TV plugged in.

It just sucks because I know its worked before. It used to be nice to listen to my music over the TV when I was in my basement working.

I may give it a shot tommorow on a different TV.

Have you checked your bios? In my bios there is an option for routing front panel sound over HDMI - maybe you need to enable that option?

Also, as for installing the correct driver - initially Windows will install it's own driver for the HDMI device, then you use the AMD catalyst installer to install the latest driver after. For AMD mobos, you should also install the "optional" southbridge driver.

Only BIOS setting that I have that appears pertinent to HDMI output is the 'SPDIF Digital Out' option, which is either SPDIF, or HDMI. Currently set to HDMI. The Front Panel option is either HD or AC97 for me. Both settings yield no results.

So what is this southbridge driver you are talking about?

THIS one for windows 7.

Also, it is prolly best to ensure you have the latest cat drivers.

Right click your volume icon in your taskbar > playback devices and make sure your HDMI is set to default. Otherwise Im not sure. Windows 7 is pretty good with plug n play and drivers are rarely actually needed to use something.

Alright, I've ultimately given up on this one. It has to do with my TV that I'm using downstairs. Currently I'm upstairs on my nice Samsung 50 Plasma, booya, and I have no problems with HDMI audio. I took it to work yesterday so I could interest people in RC by playing my PhoenixRC sim on the TV there. Absolutely no issues with HDMI audio.

I think my TV downstairs actually takes HDMI and converts it to DVI internally. I've had two solid indicators of this;

Once I had issues with multimonitor resolutions. I couldn't get my primary monitor to come back on after I gave the LCD a bad resolution. I tried changing input sources to signal to the computer that the TV was off. Well, as long as I was on HDMI OR DVI, it would still believe the LCD was on. Go to any other mode and it was fine.

Also, when I plug in the TV after windows has loaded, ATI Catalyst recognizes it as a HDMI to DVI adapter being used. Clearly this is not the case. Since thats what it sees, I think it disables the sound.

Another solid indicator is that the computer just plainly wont boot with the LCD plugged in. My plasma, and other other TV at work were never an issue.

I don't know if theres a way around this, but its clearly not a software or hardware issue, its the TV. Thanks for the help guys.
