Streaming Xfinity TV from a laptop to a TV

I'm trying to stream from my laptop through a Sony Bravia TV.  I get pictures, but the sound continues to come through my laptop.  This is only an issue with Xfinity TV.  When I stream news video from the Xfinity home page, the sound plays fine through the TV.

If you're are not using chrome, try it, it will probably work.

Use chrome, there is a bug in adobe flash. Chrome has its own version of flash that works.

Hey PeggyMas,  

 

Where you able to try streaming on Chrome as suggested? Any changes on your end?

the Comcast support ends at your laptop. you many need some tech support to use the TV speakers using a laptop/desktop.
