    Hi there,
    I'm encountering this strange (for me) problem with WMP while playing
    dvd movies: it doesn't send audio through the hdmi port to the lcd tv!
    If I disconnect the hdmi cable then I can perfectly hear the audio track
    from pc speakers. This happens just with WMP playing dvd movies!!! I get
    no problem with other audio/video files (mp3, avi, mkv, mp4, audio-cd,
    etc.) and/or other players (Media Player Classic, Cyberlink powerdvd, etc.).
    How can I fix it??
    Please help me.

    O.S. is Windows Vista Home Premium SP2

    thanks for the hint,
    I checked that option, but the audio device is already set to hdmi
    output (I can hear sound from other types of media files)! I'm thinking
    the problem may concern some settings in the codec config perhaps, but I
    don't know how to access codec config inside wmp, nor wich codec it uses

    I checked the options you suggested,
    I found the hdmi output and tested the 3 options:
    playing AC3 and DTS gives no sound,
    WMA Pro Audio returns an error msg.
    I also tried to change the audio codec, enabled ac3 and dts decoding
    with FFDShow (instead of using AC3Filter) with several output
    configurations for sound: as is, mono, stereo, dolby surround, dolby
    prologic, etc., but nothing changed!!!
    All the codecs and settings work fine with other players playing dvd or
    avi/mkv/ogm/mp4 movies, but WMP still gives no sound while playing dvd
