I have a SFF Dell Optiplex 890 with a ATI Radeon HD 4550 with Display Port, I have a Display Port to HDMI cable to go into my HDMI on my TV but I can't get any sound, I tried to set the properties on the video card / control panel and I can't find any setting to change it. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate.

I know you should be able to change the setting on your output but I can't find any, maybe I need the ATI software to change the video card settings?? If so, not sure what the software is.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Sorry for the wait, I was away. I installed the Catalyst software but still can't find anywhere to set the audio to HDMI, I have been in all the display sections etc?? I must be missing something somewhere here.

When I open the Catalyst there isn't any Sound or Audio settings, I went through all the heading on the side looking for anything to do with sound? Would I have the wrong version of the software or something?

Its not in Catalyst.

It is under the Sound in the Control Panel for Windows

I have that but that only gives me the option for the sound card display port and I have it plugged into HDMI on the TV. I have a cable that is Display Port on the card going to the HDMI on the TV and can't get that sound working?

Thanks for all the help, I really appreciate it.

the next question is...

The cable you have for DisplayPort to HDMI, did it specifically state that it supported audio as well? Some cables do not support audio, just video.

I had to get a new video card that was HDMI and as soon as I put it in, everything worked. Thanks for all the help and sorry for the delay.
