HD3870 Question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Warning: Noobisms ahead.

I understand that these cards have built in audio support, and can be used with a DVI/HDMI adapter.

With the HDMI adapter, would it be possible to run my HDTV with my 19" computer monitor in a dual monitor setup WITH sound coming through my TV speakers? It wouldn't make much sense to watch a movie with my computer, through my TV, with audio coming from my PC speakers.

How the heck would this work? How is AVIVO involved, and what is it anyway?

I'm looking into trading my card in for one of these ATI products if this could be done.

If you have your HDTV hook up using HDMI, then yes you should get sound through your TV that the HDMI is hooked up too. Getting the sound to work is a pain though.

I have a 17" LCD monitor and then I have my HDTV hooked up on HDMI to play games like GTA and GH3 but I use my 5.1 speakers for sound so TV speakers are useless to me for that.

This is false.
I run the sound to my HDTV with HDMI. Using 3870.
Had no problems what so ever. Using Realtec HD sound onboard on my K9A Platinum MB with the newest drivers. Just make sure the video prog ure using can select witch audio source you want to use, and select the HDMI selection there instead of the default sound driver. Persnally I use Mediaplayer Classic (MPC)
