hi thank for the reply What I meant was this card specifically Because I currently have a card that does not pass audio via HDMI, only video. So I have the HDMI + an audio source connected to my TV right now. I just want to use the HDMI cable for both audio and video. I just wanted to be sure this card does indeed pass video as well as audio. Thanks
I have the same issue with my onboard HDMI, it only passes 2 ch sound through the cable, hd sound requires an optic cable. According to toms hardware 5770 (and for that matter I believe all 5xxx) cards pass both HD audio and video. I double checked also on a forum and this was confermed.
Yes this card will pass Full HD audio upto 7.1, of course you need to have a mother board that supports HD audio also. The drivers that swich the audio player from your board to the card are a pain sometimes. But my stero and tv system sound and look great with this card.
Yes it does pass audio. You just have to make sure that it's selected in your playback options in sounds. Now it will just pass motherboard audio. It's not going to pass audio from your Soundblaster card if you have one installed. Actually come to think of it, I think the card has it's own audio device built in. Because the audio shows up as AMD audio when you check the playback options.
