Hi, I am at a loss as to what is going on with my installation at the moment. I was using it this morning no problems, shut it down to go out and now I have no sound. The PC audio is fine, checked the Win 7 audio mixer and everything is set to 100%. My audio works through a sound bar with an optical cable between the TV and the soundbar. MP into the TV is by HDMI. Audio work fine when watching free to air TV and in Windows, just not through MP. I haven't changed any settings in MP but checked everthing I could think of and all looked OK. When I first noticed the issue the OSD for audio was red but after rebooting that is now blue, but still no volume.

Your thoughts and advice is greatly appreciated. Also I had a query in re sub-titles and it was suggested that I check the settings in the LAV filters, can't see how to do that either if someone can point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance

Hi all, continued looking and found that windows did an update whilst I was out. Rolled the installation back and it all works again.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

    I have an intermittent problem with the audio on my Windows 7 HTPC running MP 1.25. Occasionally, the HTPC wakes from hibernation, and I start MP from the desktop (I don't leave MP running when I hibernate the system), and I find that there is video but no audio. The MP volume is not muted, and none of the Windows audio controls is muted or set to 0%. Very strange. :confused:

    I have not yet noticed any correlation with any particular combination of circumstances, but I found by trial and error that starting the "Nvidia Control Panel", disabling audio over HDMI and clicking "Apply", and then re-enabling audio over HDMI and clicking "Apply", restores the audio immediately. It is not even necessary to exit MP or stop MP playing video.

    So I don't know whether this is an MP problem, an Nvidia problem, or a Windows problem. :confused:
