Well Im not sure what the fix is for your problem, but can you please open up the sound preference next time you connect the philips tv, and make sure that sound output is set to hdmi out. Then try and play your video's etc and see if they are affected.
I can tell you I get a similar problem when, for example, I have a youtube window open and then connect the external display. The youtube video will not sound out through the cable, however if i refresh the window it works. Also the same when I use bluray player on mac, I have to close it and open it again for the sound to output through the external monitor.

I've tried again and it seems to work right now, but I think that the problem persists...in fact it's quite random. I'm still confused because I do exactly the same every time and sometimes the sound's ok and sometimes not. I connect the HDMI cable, go to preferences, sound, hdmi out (phillips hdtv), that's all I have to do right? By the way, thank you for your answer!

thats right you followed the stops properly. Now I can only suggest that you book a session with the apple genius guys and ask them to check the mac in case there might be a fault. Hopefully in the meantime someone else will have an answer on here.
