Sound when streaming


New Member
I have a SurfacePro 6 and would like to stream from the display output to my TV. I have a minidisplay to HDMI adapter and can then run an HDMI cable into the TV. This works fine but I get no audio from the TV! When I just use the Surface with an external speaker (USB), the sound comes through fine. What have I overlooked?

Sometimes (like one of my three TVs, the Vizio) I must access my TV "audio" menu to deliberately say the sound source is HDMI instead of the separate optical input.

Is there another TV you can do a short test on, just to make sure the problem is not your adapter?

Thanks for the suggestion! I have a Vizio as well, but it doesn’t have that option in the settings. I have my TV speakers turned off because my amplifier drives the sound to built-in speakers in the house but I’ll try turning the TV speakers back on. That’ll probably work. Stay tuned!
