Does the 8800 not support HDMI audio?

ATI HD series cards do.

8800GT only supports DVI, at least for mine. I can do DVI to HDMI, but no sound since DVI doesn't carry sound.

That sucks. ATI cards have a special adapter that let the DVI port output audio.

Works well too. I have it on my HTPC.

Yeah, it seems like the 4xxx, 5xxx, and the GTx have a built in audio controller, or at least that's what I got with Google.

Yeah. I think the 3xxx might too' but I'm not sure on that.

Aren't there some 9800s with HDMI though?

EDIT: The card has SPDIF headers that connect to the sound card. Simple.

3xxx has built in sound though. Same with 2xxx so its all the HD series like I had thought.

I wonder about x1xxx cards.... seems that they do too. cool.

Older radeons don't though.

Found this guide
http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/4411...ound-over.html
Will it actually work on DVI to HDMI?

EDIT - Just noticed that my card doesn't have one, or at least I cant see it.
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814130357

EDIT2 - Never mind, found it.


Though, it seems like it might be hard trying to get the connectors to connect.

Teny: no idea, look at the card itself. could be covered with that shroud.

I'm looking on my Mobo user manual, and it doesn't seem like they have that thing to connect to the graphics card.

My mobo does have an SPDIF optical though.

EDIT - Yeah... My mobo nor my 8800GT has the SPDIF. I think I have to connect the video via DVI to HDMI, and audio with toslink via SPDIF optical out.
I don't plan on playing much games with my PC on the TV, especially since the TV will have a higher resolution.

Jeez... What resolution are you using? I thought pretty much everyone here had a 1920x1080.
