sound over hdmi-hd3850

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm getting my basement finished and plan on running an hdmi cable under the flooring from the computer to the tv.

It's gonna go
3850-dvi to hdmi dongle-hdmi cable-tv

The dongle came with my video card. If I understand correctly, i'll be able to send video and audio over it? Will it be decent quality?

HDMI is capable of running video and audio at the same all thought, via a pc graphics card id dont think its possible, im running a hdmi lead thru my 2 4870's and there is no sound thru my monitor, so id just plug ur speakers into a sound card.

You can activate the sound thru the ATI 3850 like this: Change the default sound device from Control panel > Sound and Audio Properties > Audio. Put the ATI sound card as the default sound output (and not the terratec card) and the sound will be processed by the VID card.

thanks for the tip
I was just worried that it wouldnt work because dvi doesnt normally support audio right? I guess the dongle takes care of that then...

DVI is not capable of transmitting a sound signal as far as I am aware of, those dongles will usually only support a video signal. just my two cents

I googled it and i think it should work. In the specifications of the 3850 it says
"Built-in HDMI and 5.1 surround audio
Support for the ATI Radeon DVI to HDMI adapter"

I've used it through my tv and then hooked my speakers up to the tv and the sound was fine through the tv and the my speakers.

I really wish people who have no idea would stop saying it doesn't work because they're putting false information out because it does work.

Yea, 3800 series supports up to 5.1 and the new 4800 series supports up to 7.1.

My HIS 2600xt is supposed to have built in 5.1 but i haven't tried it yet since i haven't had the extra cash for a 50' hdmi cable to go around the room.

Is there a way to do both the onboard mb sound and the gpu sound?
