    I have been looking for deals on an HDMI surface adapter because I couldn't bring myself to pay $40 just to hook it up to my TV, after a little reading I realized the port on the Surface/2 is just a micro HDMI port, $10 at radioshack boom, Halo spartan assault on my TV.

    My assumption was you called yourself an a-hole, haha.

    But congrats on solving the issue, hopefully you have a wired controller too?

    I do but I'd like to get a wireless adapter and the controller to go along with.

    I dont know if not realizing the type of port calls for anything so harsh lol But its funny that ID10T has been blocked. Makes the post seem taboo.

    I can never get the sound to play from the TV when I connect. It just plays from the surface's speakers. I must be missing some tweak within the TV then? Or on the surface?

    I think you could just go to playback devices under sound (right click on the speaker in desktop mode). Your HDMI should be listed as an output. Select it and then set it as default or active to get sound from that port.

    Think I might splash out on one of those cheaper ones.

    Thanks I did that and everything looked as it should then I toggled the volume slider and it started working. Weird, it was in the full volume position already, but moving it up and down did the trick. Working fine now.
