That, my friend, may be a little harder.

The DVI=>HDMI adapter that comes with you card, along with your card itself, is 'special' and they don't work according to actual DVI specifications.

IOW, the DVI output on the gfx card is set up in such a way that a special DVI=> HDMI adapter can be used on it, and the resulting output matches the HDMI spec (i.e. video + sound).

This way, you can plug an HDMI cable into that adapter, and the receiving device gets sound and video via an HDMI input port, and doesn't know the difference in terms of the source plug fitting into what looks like a DVI port.

But there's really no 'sound over DVI', and that's not what you're actually doing there wink.gif
