No sound with HDMIcable?

  1. I have the Xbox 360 Elite so i use the HDMI cable that came with it on my HDTV but theres no sound when im using it, worked fine before but all of a sudden it just stopped, so i switched to the component cable and the sound works, do i need a new cable?? or is something wrong with my TV and/or Xbox?

    * While the Xbox 360 is turned off, remove the hard drive.
    * Turn on the Xbox 360.
    * Once the Dashboard loads, replace the hard drive.

    I had the exact same problem, I JUST tried this and it worked.

  1. Are you using the original blade Dashboard or have you updated to the New XBox Experience (NXE)? I have heard rumblings that there is a sound problem with the NXE when using an HDMI cable. I have heard about official work-arounds, but if you can live with the picture from the component cable then just use it until a patch or 'ultra new' Dashboard is posted. The official work-arounds seem a bit crazy to me, since I was more than happy with component video when I was using it. I am waiting to update to NXE until I hear solid posts about the sound-NXE-HDMI issue disappearing.

  3. Note however: this is a temporary fix, you must do this every time you start up your xbox. BOO :(

  4. This problem was fixed months ago with the release of a new Dashboard Update of which there have been 3 since this was first posted.
