I use a television as my main monitor on Windows 10 Pro and connect to it via HDMI. This works fine for the most part, however if I turn the TV off for more than a couple minutes, when I turn it back on, Windows doesn't detect its speakers.
- I have a workaround: Sound Control Panel > Sounds tab (see screenshot), as just opening it, without doing anything, makes Windows detect the speakers.
- Volume Up/Down/Mute buttons, Volume Mixer panel, and Settings > Sound panel do nothing
Since it's such a trivial thing that makes Windows detect the speakers (possibly cache invalidation?), is there some way to automate this?
