When I connect an LG TV to my Lenovo B50-45 laptop via hdmi, I get audio through the tv speakers but the headphone jack on the laptop does not work. How do I get the headphone jack to work and shut off the tv speakers so I don't disturb others while watching TV through the computer.
Here's what you can try that may do the trick.
- Right click on speaker icon the bottom right corner and select Playback Devices.
- You should see both your TV (HDMI) and your headphone listed.
- Right click on your headphone if it's listed and select Set Default.
- Click Apply then OK.
Thanks for responding. When i right click on speaker icon on laptop, it shows a green check by realtek high definition audio device icon and i get sound in headphone jack. But if I plug tv into the computer through hdmi, the green check now is on LG and AMD high definition audio device icon and i can't get sound in headphone jack. Any other thoughts?
