[SOLVED] No sound on TV when connected to laptop

I have my laptop connected to a TV via HDMI.

My objective is to channel the sound to the TV instead of having it play on the computer.

To achieve this I tried messing around with the Mixer options, but to no avail. Although the machine does detect an HDMI port, nothing seems to be channeled to it.

How do I fix this?

Turns out the audio mixer (right click on sound option -> open mixer) only allows me to change the HDMI output of applications that are already running.

I supposed this is because my HDMI output is not set as default ... Will have to figure it out next!

That is indeed the correct approach — keep going!

When you get bored of stupid clicky GUIs, try this command to list the outputs:

pacmd list-sinks

And then use:

pacmd set-default-sink $sink

Replace $sink with the index: number of the desired output ("sink") (obtained from the first command).

cli ftw!

Thanks!
I have continued this thread in another separate topic, since this once is already solved.

Please feel free to have a look !
