Desktop to TV monitor HDMI connection, can get picture but not sound.

Friend is using a TV for a monitor for his desktop and has them connected in a straight HDMI to HDMI connection. At first everything was working fine but then he plugged in his headphones into the front headset jack and now he can't get sound through the TV, even with the headphones taken out of the jack. He's messed with volume mixer, hardware and sound, and the realtek audio manager application that came with his motherboard and he couldn't find any option that got sound running through his TV again. Any ideas?

sometimes you have to uninstall the hdmi audio driver in device manager and reinstall it

he might only have to select the proper output device in the sound options.

If that doesn't work, make sure your using HDMI 1.4. Depending on the distance 1.3 won't cut it. Sound may not work, picture may flicker, etc.
