I have a new HTPC build (it's running Windows 7 Ultimate x64) and it has a ATI Radeon 6450 as graphics card.

When I boot the PC, everything works fine. However, when the TV is turned off and then back on I notice there's no sound anymore. There are lots of other people who have this issue aswell. I've found this workaround however it doesn't seem to work for me.

I have the newest drivers (12.4). Someone said it was fixed in 9.1 but I still have the issue.

Maybe the default audio device is switched to an on-board audio, if you have it. Try disabling all other audio devices in device manager. – haimg Jun 10 '12 at 18:28
@haimg Unfortunately, it's not working. As seen in the screenshot (language is Dutch): (niet aangesloten means not connected). – Devator Jun 10 '12 at 18:47

You should see this thread. It solves the issue for some user.

In short: The 12.4 drivers are buggy, revert to 12.3 until fixed drivers are released.

Thanks, seems it's an issue with 12.4. See this thread for even more information. It also seems to be fixed in the 12.6 beta drivers. – Devator Jun 13 '12 at 9:00
This also works on Ubuntu 12.04. Reverting the drivers from 12.4 to 12.3 solved the problem. – speakr Jun 15 '12 at 10:13
