Windows 7 x64 and HDMI

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I recently got a 7850 2GB for a good price and I failed to notice it doesn't have two DVI ports screwing up my TV setup. My current setup is my monitor is primary and my TV is off be default, using windows key + P I will go to extended mode and I have a audio cable for 3.5 to watch shows/movies then disable it when I'm done. With HDMI will this work about the same and will the audio automatically stream to my TV when I activate it? I don't want it running 24/7 because I like my system to underclock when browsing the net and I want a easier method to getting audio to my TV.

I've never used HDMI on PC before so I want to make sure it's not a bigger PITA then my current setup.

It should work no problem, I had a similar issue with my graphics card and I had to get a DVI to HDMI adaptor then I realized I bought the wrong adaptor for my GPU and so then got another adaptor to adapt it to the GPU

Appreciate the reply, will the audio/video work as I guessed it would? My big thing is 1) I don't want the second monitor (aka TV) to be activated all the time and 2) Will audio stream automatically when I activate the second monitor or do I need to mess with audio settings?

You can set the audio via the HDMI port to go on or off from Windows. The second monitor you can disable from the windows screen resolution setting (just choose primary monitor and choose it).

Audio wise, Windows should detect it but you need the right HDMI plug. Make sure though your computer / GPU supports it otherwise it may not work and you will need to use an Audio cable.

Thank you, says "Support for Deep Color, 7.1 High Bitrate Audio, and 3D Stereoscopic, ensuring the highest quality Blu-ray and video experience possible from your PC." so looks like I'm in the green. Will order a cable Monday and be off to the races.

Well it worked great, I actually don't have to change my audio either. I turn on my TV and my PC automatically changes to "extended mode" and my audio instantly changes to HDMI (I set my HDMI as default) then I turn my TV off and it all resets and my pc speakers are primary again lol.

Thanks for the help.....this is fantastic biggrin.gif
