Default help hooking comp to HDTV

ok.. so im trying to hookup my computer to my HDTV through HDMI. i can get a picture but i cant get sound to come out of the tv. i have tried every setting in the sounds option and no go. im using a radeon HD 6670 GPU. i read somewhere that i need to change a setting on the computer from analog to digital but i cant find that setting anywhere. using windows 7 64bit. yes this is probably a stupid question that has been asked before... sorry

Do you have the ATI HDMI Output as default?



There are no stupid questions here.

it worked! except mine says AMD HDMI output. but when i switch back and forth from my monitor to my HDTV i have to keep switching AMD HDMI output and speakers as default. is there any way i can have it to where it will automatically switch over whenever i switch from tv or monitor?

Unless you are running your monitor on HDMI, that shouldn't matter. It should default back to system sound when the HDMI cord is disconnected.
