You can help us by letting us know the audio types your trying to play,  do you have Realtek HD audio?manager in your control panel?
 at this stage saying this worked in the linked why doesn't mine now?
I cant give you accurate suggestions.
You say it once worked what changed? Drivers? Audio types?

What is your computer model make to get the HD audio drivers?

follow the instructions AGAIN http://tinyurl.com/b94xng4
    Open Sound panel
    Select Speakers as the default playback device
    Go to the "Recording" tab
    Right click and enable "Show Disabled Devices"
    A recording device called "Wave Out Mix", "Mono Mix" or "Stereo Mix" (this was my case) should appear
    Right click on the new device and click "Enable"
    Right click on the new device and click "Set as Default Device"
    Double click on the new device to open the Properties window
    Go to the "Listen" tab
    Click on the "Listen to this device" checkbox
    Select your HDMI device from the "Playback through this device" list

Thanks to all.  This just started working again one day.  I have not tested it yet, but I think the HDMI input on my TV has to be the active one when either booting the computer.
