At my house, I currently have my laptop connected to my Samsung Smart TV via a HDMI cable. I simply place my laptop next to my tv, connect the HDMI cable to both the laptop and the TV and whatever I am viewing on my laptop, I watch on my tv. This is great, and it works flawlessly and takes about 4 seconds to set up. Everything works perfect and the sound plays though my tv set up.
I recently tried to do the same thing at my parent's house. I have some family video's of my neice that I wanted to show from my laptop, so I tried to do the same thing with the laptop to my fathers tv (a LG smart tv). I simply connected the laptop to the tv via a HDMI cable and the video worked perfect on the tv, however, the sound only played through the laptop and NOT the TV (which was useless).
Obviously I am missing something. Can someone provide some possible solutions so I can also get the sound to play through the tv like with my set up?
