    For some reason, the MePo 1.2.3.0 system I have installed for our neighbour, which has been working fine, suddenly has No Audio again while MePo is running.

    I have an Acer Revo 3600 connected to a LCD TV using HDMI. It has been working for months.

    The other time this happened, they managed to "mute" the sound which only affected MePo. That's the first thing I checked.

    Tonight they call to say no sound while attempting to watch a TV Series. When we try to play any video, or even any music from mp3, there is no sound from MePo. You can't even hear the little clicks when you navigate the menu.

    I made sure the sound wasn't muted; I made sure it the default sound playback device was ok; I changed/rebooted/checked sound by attempting to use other sound codecs; I uninstalled LAV completely/rebooted/switched to Microsoft Codec's; I rebooted/tried MPC codecs.

    A Shift-1 while video is playing shows me the audio codec I've selected is in use, but I don't hear a thing out of Mepo.

    I tried changing the default sound to HDMI instead of default. Nada.

    I'm at a loss. I ended up installing VLC Player and showed them how to load their videos into it. Lots of sound there.

    What else should I be looking at?

    Can you doublecheck:
    Start MP, then use alt-enter to get to windowed mode and play music, then mouse over to volume icon in systray, click on this and then go up to mixer, you will see Mediaportal listed, does it show anything different to master volume, ie muted.

    Perfect. That was it!

    Why does MePo do that?

    To be honest, I don't know and it never happened to me but I saw other users having this problem too.
