I'm a little new around here and have an issue with a Dell Studio 1555 laptop which has an HDMI port that I'm trying to make use of.
Now I have a few issues, and from Googling until the early hours of the morning it seems I'm not alone.
My setup is as follows:
I have a Yamaha DSP-AX763 setup which has been working fine with a Panasonic DMP-BD30 and Sky HD as the HDMI sources.
I've had no issues with these, however, I've no tried to connect my new laptop, it's a Dell Studio 1555 with a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 on board card with an HDMI out. I don't have a DVI output on the laptop, so I can't use Gefen's DVI Detective I'm afraid.
Now my issue is that when I play the Dell through the amp I don't get any audio, the video works fine.
However, when I plug the laptop straight into the screen which is a Panasonic TH42PV500 I get sound and video.
Now I've been looking around at that one and I've had no success in finding a solution that works for me, so any advice would be great.
I also have another issue, where Windows won't allow me to play a test sound, either a DTS or Dolby Digital sound. I get the following error message: "windows was unable to play the test tone support for this format will be disabled" I've tried various tests and I still have no luck.
Is this just a simple issue like a missing driver? If it is I can't seem to find a driver for it anywhere.
Thanks in advance for your help, I've done a lot of reading on this forum and the level of knowledge and help looks superb so hopefully you will be able to help me out as well.
