Hi, i tried to use it as TV. I plug in my PS4. I got images but no sound. I test my PS4 with other TV and it works with sound. I tried both HDMI inputs but both without sound. Is there a settings or something i need set?

    Did you have any luck with this problem? I upgraded a family members Z5801 by upgrading the memory, SSD, and installing Windows 10. The computer side works great, but they also use the ACER as a TV and it has no sound.  It has video but no audio from HDMI input 1 or 2.

    That doesn't surprise me, when used as an external monitor the computer itself isn't running so it doesn't know anything about sound...
