I want to connect my Laptop (Lenovo Y570) to my Sony Amp (STR-DA2400ES) using the HDMI port on my Laptop.
I use a PC monitor as a "TV" which is connected using the HDMI OUT of the amp and a DVI-plug to convert HDMI signal to DVI.
Before I bought a new HDMI cable solely for this purpose, I tested the connection using the hdmi cable from the TV.
Connection was established and the Laptop recognized the amp as an audio device and played audio through the amp. (of course i had no video feed as i used the tv cable).
So now I bought a new cable and tried to set it up again but this time the Laptop did not recognize the amp as an audio device and sound is played through my laptop speakers, even though the picture feed is perfect.
Any idea where the problem lies? I know audio over HDMI is supported by the laptop as it played audio before, so that cannot be the problem...
Hopefully this issue can be resolved...
Thanks in advance
