32 envy: no sound on HP Envy 32 via mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable on Mac mini

I recently bought a HP Envy 32 monitor and hooked it up to my Mac mini using a mini DisplayPort (i.e. Thunderbolt) DisplayPort cable. The video works fine @ 2560 x 1440, but I have no sound. The output sound in references to system preferences "the selected device has no output settings" for the 32 envy. The sound works fine when I use a HDMI cable, but then, the resolution is limited to 1080 p. The Mac mini is a mid 2011 model, which is able to transfer the audio via DisplayPort, SAA as far as I know. Any suggestion on how to solve this problem?


Figured out how to get mini-displayport audio to work with the HP Monitor (I have a Macbook Air)

In addition to choosing the HP monitor HP ENVY 32 audio in the PREFERENCES SYSTEM-> SOUND->-> OUTPUT

An adjustment should also be made to the AUDIO and MIDI CONFIGURATION.  You can either do a search for it in the finder, or it is in APPLICATIONS-> UTILITIES-> setting up Audio and MIDI

  1. Open the app
  2. In the left menu, select DisplayPort
  3. Format of... Replace with 48000,0 Hz 2-channel 24-bit wide

Once changed, you should be playing audio from your monitor.

Good luck.

    I see that your computer should be a model from 2011. I could be wrong but HP computers once 2012 come with UEFI - I really don't know, but that's what I found on the Internet.

    If she says legacy, maybe it's just the BIOS that has no extension UEFI, or it coul be your BIOS/UEFI boot mode is set to Legacy mode

    Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) is just the firmware code to a chip on the motherboard that provides additional functionality beyond the input/output system BIOS (Basic). UEFI is a way of doing things with your computer before loading the operating system. For example, UEFI can provide menus very graphics and information on a computer and a diagnostic system based on a computer and tablet. UEFI works with the BIOS to initialize the hardware before handing over control of the hardware of the operating system. UEFI can also load and display software storage devices to provide even more features, such as more detailed system information and extensive hardware diagnostics. More information:

    > http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04784866

    If your computer came with Windows 7 preinstalled originally, most likely your computer lacks UEFI because computers that came with 8 preinstalled Win and were supposed to be win 8 certified had UEFI + active SecureBoot.

    Regarding the original question, Apple Mac OS is only officially taken supported devices and hardware from Apple.

  • Envy 4520: Envy 4520 via USB

    I just bought the 4520 envy. I did not put in place, but I need an extension cord. So far, I want to familiarize myself with it. I intend to use the connection of the USB cable, I bought. But I don't see the USB port of the printer.  Where he's hiding?

    I would like to use the wifi but mine disconnects every 30 minutes.

    It is in the back on the right, next to the power connector. However you must have a printer USB cable.

  • 120 envy: envy 120th Scan of the computer cannot be activated MAC running El Capitan

    Hi guys,.

    I recently installed it all above named mentioned HP printer software but for some reason, I can't Scan for compatible computer.

    I need to work in order to scan a batch of documents and consolidate in 1 file.

    The native application of the Mac scanner handles scan page by page and saves it on my desk. but I really need the batch option to work.

    I followed all the standard procedures to reinstall the software, resets etc, but I'm still having the problem.

    Under the HP utility screen, I have the scan to computer option on the bottom of the menu. I click on that and extract information. Then I get this message as well as the red dot

    "The HP software required for the Scan of the computer could not be located on this computer. Please download and install the latest HP recommended software for your device to http://www.hp.com/supportand then try again. »

    I made sure all the software is installed and I still have the same question.

    I can connect to the printer and scan of the web also. I just seems to be a problem with the HP utility App and the printer.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thank you very much.

    Then, open the HP utility and try to activate the Scan of the computer again.

    Hello andrew8blue,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I saw your picture and read your thread. The cable is not a replaceable part. You might have to replace the whole motherboard if the HARD drive does not work.

  • Pavilion x 360: no sound in my TV when I plugged in my HDMI cable

    Hello, I just bought a HDMI cable to connect my HP Pavilion x 360 on my TV. Unfortunately, I get only video on my TV but no sound. Audio only comes from my x 360 Pavilion. I am aware of the right by clicking on the volume icon and clicking on "playback devices" to defult cable HDMI or TV. Unfortunaly, it is not visible even after activating the devices disconnected and disabled. Please, someone help so I can get sound on my TV as well? I left a screenshot. As a reminder, my HDMI is connected on both sides, and I also disconnected and disabled visible devices. Thank you!

    On my HP Envy, there is a known issue, that the system still does not recognize the new connection, so you get no audio and video.  The solution on my machine is to connect the hdmi cable with the computer and the television to stop (or at less the computer sleep), THEN you will need to activate them in the right order - I think that this is TV first, then computer to find the live TV connection already when it starts / wakes up.

    I have a hp probook 4710 s, I have recently cleaned my computer wiping windows vista and download of windows 7 for my computer.  Before I did my hdmi cable that I used for the tv worked, and now that I have reset everything on my computer I can not get my TV to recognize sound through the hdmi cord, even if the image is their.  What should I do?  My laptop has his and my tv has sound when it is not connected to my computer but the second he plug the tv noise disappears and all the sound out of my computer speakers.  I changed all the settings in the sounds and audio devices, and nothing has worked.  any suggestions


    In the section of sound from the Control Panel, when you click on manage Audio devices, you see two choices?

    You should.  You should see your integrated audio system (Soundmax) and your HDMI (which should be your AMD HD Audio device).

    You must have this current option in order to have your HDMI audio to work.

    If it is not present, I recommend you to only visit the Web of AMD site to download and install the latest drivers and the catalyst control center. This package should include the HDMI audio.

    Use the drop down menu to choose the drivers you need:
