Issues connecting laptop to tv via HDMI in Windows 8.1

I have tried a few times hooking my 2011 laptop up to my tv and it always worked fine in Windows 7 and Windows 8. Yet in Windows 8.1 the video shows up just fine and works like it always did. Yet for some reason the audio comes out of the laptop speakers and not the tvs speakers like I want. I have seen a few forum posts around with the same problem. Yet I am not sure how to fix this yet? Has anyone else encountered this issues with Windows 8.1?
