Verify - Display Port 6950 Audio

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just to clarify before I spend a bit of money...

Display port is fully capable of carrying an audio signal just like DVI or HDMI, right? I have this Asus 6950 with 2 DVI and 4 DP ports.

If I purchase a DP to HDMI adapter, I will be fine to push audio through it and to a TV for HTPC purposes, right?

The DisplayPort standard is a Video/Audio standard, however it depends if the manufacturers have implemented the audio part (which they should, but read the manual just to be sure). Also, if you get a DP -> HDMI cable, make sure that that correctly passes audio from the DP through to the HDMI side too.

googling your GPU + audio over displayport:

seems to say that your card, does in fact support audio, and the "included" DP->HDMI also supports an AV signal, so you're set to go. (ignore his problem, I'm just using it as a reference to the fact that it does work)

I am further faced with a unique dilemma imposed by my case, a Silverstone FT03. Because of the top panel construction, I need to [ideally] find a pigtail of sorts with a 3-6 inch DP Male to HDMI female, or DVI male to HDMI female; neither of which seem to exist.

May have to opt for a new card altogether.
