I can see whats on my monitor on my TV screen but I can't get the sound to work. I went to playback devices and I don't see the option to make my TV the default device, and I have the option checked for disabled devices. Am I missing something?

Go into your Device Manager and look for something in the System Devices called High Definition Audio Controller. You may have multiples of it. Check and see if any of them are disabled. If they are, then enable them. This fixed the problem for me once.

What video card do you have? If you have an AMD Radeon card then you need to reinstall your Catalyst drivers which includes the AMD HDMI audio drivers. If you have a NVIDIA card then reinstall the GeForce drivers and make sure the NVIDIA HDMI audio drivers are installed.

Double checked that and I have one of those in System devices, but it's enabled. In the area just above that I have four High Definition Audio things but they're all enabled as well.

NVIDIA gtx 560ti. Do you have a link I could use? I think I'm on the latest driver version.

Also I checked the cable with a laptop and the same TV and the audio worked, so it's just something with the computer.

Hmmm, that is interesting. Have you checked around the Nvidia control panel? There are various things that mention HDMI audio.
You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/

"The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit."

A few years ago, I tried using an old HP laptop as a HTPC. It had an NVIDIA, as well, and I could never get the audio to work via HDMI. My research showed that it was a common issue with (older?) NVIDIA cards, and (most of the time) there was no solution.

I know this won't be of much help to you, but just thought I'd share my experience. Hopefully you'll find a solution.
Look at yourself in the mirror, and tell me what a man is without pride. Tell me what a man is without fire in his eyes. Tell me who the f*** you are.
