HP Elitebook x360 / Dell U2410 LCD monitor (with speakers) via HDMI connected
My Question or Issue:
Since a few days (after one of the recent app updates?), Spotify does not play sound anymore (it always worked perfectly fine) when playing through HDMI on the speakers of my LCD monitor. It plays but stays silent. No errors. If I play audio from other sources (YouTube / local mp3's etc) through HDMI it works just fine. This means playing audio through HDMI is working for all apps except Spotify.
When I choose the laptop as audio device Spotify does play the sound normally.
It looks like when the laptop is connected through HDMI and is chosen as audio device, Spotify does not forward the sound somehow..
What I've tried so far:
- changing HDMI cable
- reboot Windows
- reinstall Spotify
- checked all audio settings
- reinstall audio drivers
- play around with switching between audio devices (laptop / lcd via hdmi) while Spotify is open and closed (normally I could switch audio device on the fly while Spotify is open)
Anyone any ideas? Thanks!:)
