First of all i would like to say thank you for this website. I have been visiting and watching for a long time. This site has answered %90 of my questions related to Windows 2008 issues, however i have encountered an issue that i couldn’t resolve..
Before i start to explain the issue, here is my hardware;
AMD Phenom II X3 720 BE
Corsair DDR2-800 4 GB Kit x2 [Total of 8GB Memory]
ATi Radeon HD 4670
Creative Audigy 2 ZS
Now my issue… I have a Samsung T240HD. T240HD is connected to my Logitech Z-5500D via Optical cable. Now currently i use HDMI Input 1 for my main computer and 2 for the Cable HD box. My other PC has HD 4850, and i have tested the feature on Vista, and it works. Now i have connected one of the HDMI inputs to my Windows 2008 box as well to watch some movies i have got, however i cannot choose the HDMI Sound from the Sound Panel. I have enabled the Windows Audio and installed Quality Audio and Video feature. It says “Not Plugged in” for HDMI Sound, which u can also see from the screen shot.
Anyone seen anything like this? Any suggestions?

Good to hear you find this website useful! 🙂
About your problem: At first, be sure you installed the most recent driver for your Graphics Card. If you already did that or if it doesn’t solve the problem try to install the Desktop Experience feature which includes beside the Aero theme several multimedia-related software.
Can’t think of any other things to try at the moment, so hope one of these tips can solve it. Possibly Google can help you more: lmgtfy. 😉

I have just recently noticed that my DVI->HDMI adapter was the issue. It seems so that, there were lots of pins missing. I would think that, it is compatible with video and not audio.. I have replaced it, and problem went away :). Thank you for your response.

Ah okay! 🙂 I thought it worked on the OS you used before installing Windows Server 2008 [R2] so it had to be a software problem, but now it turns out it isn’t. 😉 Anyway, thanks for the clarification! :geek:
