    Hi,

    I encountered this odd problem. I recently switched to windows 10 from 7. When I play video from the monitor (via dvi cable), it plays fine, but as soon as the big screen TV (connected via hdmi) is turned on, the sound goes off. This happens with potplayer as well as vlc player, so it's probably not application related. However, I go to windows sound setting and I can hear the test sounds (while big screen TV is on) - just not from the video. I never encountered this before in windows 7.

    If you need any other information to help diagnose, please advise.

    Thank you!
