No Audio for Recorded or Live TV, sound elsewhere. Why????

    I have Vista Ultramate connected to my LCD 32" TV using HDMI and mini Phono
    plug for audio, it has been working fine. Yesterday I watched several
    recorded TV shows and everything worked fine.

    Today I tried playing a recorded show and no audio. No matter what TV show
    there is no audio, even ones I previously watched and kept that used to have
    sound.

    Rebooted PC and got the Vista startup sounds just prior to logging on.
    Tried Control Panel -> Sounds and I have audio. Tried Windows Media Player
    and it plays music that I ripped to computer. Checked Device Manager, no
    problems with sound (or any) device. So, the computer can play sounds /
    music.

    Started Media Center up - no startup sounds. Asked Media Center to play a
    ripped cd - plays fine. Went into settings -> General -> Visual and Sound
    Effects; "Play sounds when navigating Windows Media Center" is checked - but
    no sounds. Went into Settings -> TV -> Audio it is set to Stereo. Went
    into Settings -> Windows Media Center Setup -> Set Up Your Speakers,
    mini-plug (analog) is selected, 2 Speakers is selected, clicked on test - No
    Sound.

    Went back into Music -> Music Library -> selected an album, it plays fine
    with sound.

    Tried Live TV - no sound.

    I verified that Mute works correctly via the remote (while playing an
    album). I verified that my TV will play audio via a different input (the
    DVD player).

    So, what gives??

    Thanks in Advance,

    Jesse

    Why are you using an audio cable with HDMI? HDMI carries both audio and
    video. Have you tried disconnecting the mini phone plug?

    The audio cable connects to my stereo. The stereo has speakers in most
    rooms of the house, so I can play an album and hear it where ever I am.
