AMD HDMI Output stopped working after driver update

I recently updated my ATI Driver to it's latest version. Since i've updated it, the AMD HDMI Output device doesn't play audio anymore. Video output works fine, though.

 

When i select "AMD HDMI Output" in my Audio settings and select it as my default device, audio continuees playing through my regular audio device.

 

Since this happened i tried the following:

  1. Formatted my computer (since it was needed anyway) and reinstalled Windows 7
  2. Reinstalled the driver
  3. Tried different HDMI cables
  4. Tried different televisions, where the HDMI cable is hooked up.

 

Still the problem persist...

 

I think i would have to blame the driver. Because it's the only thing that changed, since it stopped working. When i check my Device Manager the device all shows up correctly.

Also Catalyst control panel doesn't show an "Audio" option, even though i see it present in some screenshots i found on the internet.

 

Does someone know what to to? Maybe downgrade my driver, even though it will give me less compatilibity with the latest games...


BTW, I see myself as a high expertise on software and hardware computer related problems. I tried everything i could (except downgrading drivers). What do you guys recommend?
