Audio through HDMI on my GTX 260 w/Xtreme Music

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have the GTX 260 and an Xtreme Music sound card. Up until recently I have used the Xtreme music as my sound card. Well, now I want to forward the audio through my receiver while having the graphics card plugged in via HDMI.

How can I forward the audio from the sound card through the HDMI on the graphics card? Do I need a cable of sorts between the two and connect them somehow or will the motherboard forward the audio perhaps?

Thanks for the help in advance. It is for my brothers computer, but also a topic I would like to know about. Heck I just plugged my computer into my GTX 460 on my personal computer and if forwarded the audio to the TV bypassing the ASUS Xonar Essence STX. So this particular situation is a bit of a mystery to me.

Try using the supplied SPDIF cable (with the GTX260) and connect it to the SPDIF output of the Xtrememusic card.  See the 3 pics below.

Remember to enable Spdif out in Sound (under Windows) and in the sound card.
