    When I plug in the HDMI connection, I cannot use audio outputs from laptop. Audio only from TV (LG HDTV has no audio outputs, Ugh)Changed sound settings - default etc.
    Need to use ear phones from laptop due to hearing problem.
    Is this usual when you plug in the HDMI cable?
    Options appreciated.

    Connecting the HDMI, by default, changes the audio output to the HDMI chipset, thus sending the audio to the attached device. If you don't want the audio to go out the HDMI port, you will need to change the default audio device/port in the audio configuration.
