I have an hdmi out on my motherboard, and an lcd with two hdmi inputs.
Up until several days ago everything worked fine with regards to seeing movies on the TV, and when the audio was directed to Digital Audio device I'd hear it from the TV.
After a bad incident involving ripping the cable out of its socket and destroying it, I had to buy new hdmi cable. Now I can only ge the picture on hdmi2 (before it was through hdmi1), and I get no sound on the TV.
I figured there are 4 major cases:
1. the computer digital output is damaged
2. the tv digital audio input is damaged
3. hdmi1 on the tv is damaged, and hdmi2 was never supopsed to have an audio channel (is it possible?)
4. the cheap hdmi cable I bought only handles video, and no audio (again - I don't even know if such video-only cables exist)
Which option is the most logical? How can I strike out several to get to the bottom of this?
I run windows7 here, btw.
