Same problem here, updating DH61AG to the new-gen BIOS (versions 099 - 106) breaks HDMI audio. I have a 2nd-gen Core processor running Win7, and have tried clean installs, reset BIOS settings (and of course enabling HDMI audio), etc. etc. but no luck.
I've seen this same problem reported several places. Intel, will there be a fix?

I had the same problem after updating to BIOS 109. However installing an updated graphics driver (Graphics: Intel® HD Graphics Driver for Boards with 2nd Gen Processors) solved the issue. The graphics driver also updated Intel Audio Device which apparently needed a new driver after the BIOS update.
Thanks for sharing this feedback. I am sure it will be helpful for other customers.
I just updated the bios on my DH61AG to version 0109 (versions 0099 then 0109)and am having exactly the same sound issue with HDMI.
It seems my "High definition audio device" driver is not working as it will not start and i am getting "This device cannot start. (Code 10)". But my realtek driver seems fine.
I have tried updating both drivers, updating the Graphics drivers did not resolve the issue, and if I try the Graphics: Intel® HD Graphics Driver for Boards with 2nd Gen Processors as suggested above, then i get " this computer does not meet the minimum requirements of this software".
In the `BIOS I have changed HDMI/DisplayPort Audio -> to Enabled and AUDIO: Internal SPDIF/DMIC header -> to Digital MIC. But the HD audio driver still fails and I have no sound.
Any sugestions on how to fix this?
Try the step mentioned on post #2.
Could you please elaborate on which of the step mentioned in post 2 you think will solve the problem and why, when it did not for the writer of post 2?
May I know what the processor you are using on this 6 series motherboard is?
I have a Intel Core i3 CPU @ 3300 MHz
Also 4 GB ram and ssd harddisk (kingston 84 GB).
OS is Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit.
If you are getting the message “this computer does not meet the minimum requirements of this software" is because the driver you are installing is for 2nd generation processors and maybe you have a 3rd generation processor.
If so, try this driver:
If you are having problems or still getting the message, try these steps:
The graphics driver worked perfectly and fixed my problems with no sound through HDMI.
Thanks a million for all your help Kevin. I was afraid that my computer was bricked as I am using it as a HTPC.
You are welcome. It is very good to know it is working now for you.
