I've got a fairly new HTPC, which I mainly use for XBMC. I wanted to watch some videos via Flash player this evening and I immediately hit a brick wall as there was no sound. I found it odd, so tried to play a music file that I know normally works to see if it was just Chrome that was causing it and that has no sound either.

All of my content within XBMC is 5.1, and that plays absolutely fine.

If I go to 'Sound' within Windows I can see that the sound bar is going up and down to say that sound should be playing, however my speakers aren't picking it up.

Just to clarify I've tried:
An MP3
Flash
A music video

I have tried using both HDMI and Optical out but again it doesn't seem to want to know unless it's 5.1!

All 3 are working fine on my normal PC, none are working on the HTPC.

Any clues guys?
