So from what I gather, you just plug in a HDMI cable with audio outputs also into the tv and it takes care of it all via the drivers?
On supported video cards. I believe the card had to be designed with audio on it. But im not positive on that.
Heres a thread I found right off of a google search discussing it.http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/399894
And an Nvidia forum post.http://forums.nvidia.com/lofiversion/index.php?t86722.html
It sounds like if the card has a connector on it to go to the mobo, your gonna get audio off of it if you use the HDMI output and set your default audio to SPDIF
Edit: Well I just emailed Customer Service for BFG Tech. I asked them about not having a cable for the SPDIF from the vid card to the mobo in my package. Reason I asked was there page for my card says on it that it does audio through the vid card. They responded (really fast as well) asking for some typical info and they will mail me one. Mine is a GTX 275
So yeah, you need to have a card that has the SPDIF connector on it, with HDMI output on it (or the SPDIF out on it). Just gotta research your card is all. =DThis comment was edited on Mar 3, 2010, 15:41.
