Hello Tech Guy Forums,

Today I have bought the Logitech Z906 speaker set and I'm having a small issue that I just can't resolve myself (not that familiar with audio). At this moment I have my laptop connected with the first input option (that's the 6-channel direct input, or input 1), I only use the green cable in both my laptop and speaker set as that should give me stereo sound and it works quite well. Now, for the tv I am using an optical fiber (Toslink, or input 3) and this works fine as well.

Now for the problem I'm experiencing: I sometimes want to connect my laptop to my tv through HDMI so I can use a second screen. But while the speaker set is able to play sound when both laptop and tv are separate (just using input 1 /or/ 3), as soon as I connect the two with an HDMI cable all sound is gone. A friend told me that for it to work I should also have my tv plugged in via input 1 so both laptop and tv are connected with the same input. But I don't know if this will work and neither do I know if it is true at all.

I know this is a long story but I'm hoping that this is a relatively easy to solve problem and I hope to hear from someone soon.

Kind regards,
Luc

You probably just need to set the playback device to the speakers you want to use as it's likely jumping to the HDMI for audio output when it's connected, since HDMI carries video and audio. In the Control Panel go to the Sound icon and on the Playback tab set the device you want to use.

I already tried that and it didn't quite work out, but now that I've reconnected my pc it's working just fine all of the sudden... Well, thank you anyway Triple6 :)
