I have a HDX18 (purchased/built in May 2009) with HL-DT-ST BD-RE GBW-B10N ATA Device made by . I connect my laptop to my HDTV via a HDMI cable.
Prior to a cyberlink blu-ray update (Sept. 2009), all my blu-ray movies play perfectly on my TV & the sound came from the surround sound system connected to the TV. Now when I watch a blu-ray movie the sound only comes from the laptop not the TV/surround sound speakers. However, when I play a DVD the sound with come out of the TV/surround sound speakers.
I did the Cyberlink upgrade so I could watch the latest released blu-ray movies. I uninstalled/reinstalled all software & drivers associated with MediaSmart, IDT, etc with no luck The problem is the lastest Cyberlink Blu-ray software update because if I do a software recovery of the original MediaSmart program some blu-ray discs with play with sound others discs indicate I need to update my blu-ray software.
Has anyone else had this problem & found a resolution to it? I have spent countless hours on the phone with Tech Support with no resolution. I think I have a bad Blu-ray drive!
PLEASE HELP ME! Thanks so much
