Video output is perfect, however I can't see any options for the audio.

I have gone to the Dell website and updated both the audio and the video drivers but still do not see a HDMI option when going to Playback Devices in my sound options. I have both display disabled and disconnected options ticked.

Do you have one that says "Digital Audio"? That's what it is on my computer. – techturtle Jan 13 '13 at 2:29
No. Unfortunately, I only have speakers/headphones :( – jezhug Jan 13 '13 at 2:31
Do you have integrated or dedicated graphics? I am not sure the Intel HD 3000 supports audio over HDMI, so if you have only the integrated - you may be SOL. (Though I am researching more to confirm). – nerdwaller Jan 13 '13 at 4:32
Intergrated. It uses the IDT HD Audio codec. Thinking I am SOL :) – jezhug Jan 13 '13 at 4:49
