Help with GTX 295 with no sound on HDMI to TV

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I have been having a bit of a dilemma that I hope you can help me with or at least guide me in the right direction.

My sig. below is up to date as far as my computer components.

I have a GTX 295 video card. A few weeks ago I purchased the Panasonic TC-P46s2 flat screen TV.
I bought HDMI cables and set up the TV last night. I wanted to test out the quality of the HD movies on my TV from my PC. The image came through perfect, however, there is no audio coming out.
I've tried googling the symptoms, but there is so much information and questions and very few answers..

One thing I noticed is my Win 7 audio screen doesn't show my TV model. I only have the speakers that show up, my disabled headphones, and the SPDIF.
(It looks like this):
62510996.jpg

(And it doesn't look like this):
soundwork.jpg

I tested it over & over with my friend, but there was no audio coming out...I even updated to the latest Nvidia drivers for my card. No luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

P.s. An odd thing that I noticed is that my TV model doesn't show up on the audio display, however, it shows up on the NVIDIA Control Panel.

You may have to connect the SPDIF connector to the card to get it to work. I ran into problems with nvidia in the past with audio through hdmi and never got it to work. Check to see if the audio is being compressed in a way that the tv can't pick up,...

Thanks for the response.
Actually I don't have that S/PDIF Connector.

It's this, right?
ZT-88TES3P-FCP_Digital_Audio.jpg

I only know this because I initially purchased a GTX 480 that contained this wire/connector. However, when I traded another member locally, the gtx 295 did not have that wire.
Does the GTX 295 contain this wire?
Or is it something I need to connect on the audio/sound card?

im not familiar with the bfg 295s so i dont know if it has a direct hdmi plug in or you are using a dvi to hdmi adapter (like i was for my evga 295) if you are then thats the prob cause as i know dvi port does not carry audio signal then you might have to use your sound card to use your tv as a speaker source hope this helps

I was initially using the hdmi to dvi adapter on my prior TV because it was the 1st generation HD TV. And I did have an audio splitter--one audio wire connected to my PC speakers, and the other connected to the TV--and that worked.

However, I am talking about and HDMI cable itself. GTX 295 on NVIDIA's website claims that the direct HDMI connection produces both sound & image. However, I am only getting the image.

I will definitely check this when I get home and see if I have that connector. If I do, and it is connected, and it still doesn't produce any sound to the TV, what may be the issue?

Yes you use that wire to connect the sound card to the graphics card so that the audio goes out through the hdmi on the video card (I am assuming the card has hdmi out the back. If it only has dvi, I don't know if that will work.)

I know that when I was hooking up my uncles GTS 250 (with hdmi) to a tv, audio would not go out of the hdmi with the cable no matter what driver or settings I tried to use. This has been a problem on nvidia forums for a while now.....

This is exactly what it looks like:
gtx295-001.jpg

And you are correct about the consistency about this problem on the Nvidia forums.
The 295 is already an expensive card, and I really don't want to go through the hassle of buy another expensive card just to get audio.

My friend told me one alternate option I can do is get an HDMI to component wire:

It would be nice to just have the HDMI cable though...with image AND sound mad.gif

No you need a spif cable. 2 wires. that connect to mobo then the the 2XX cards. I got one i know . The 480gtx dose not need it now. The 295 needs it .or 285 260 all them need spif cable. They are cheap. 5 dollars is the most i would pay for one. Yes you can connect a dvi-hdmi connection on the 480gtx and have sound come out. I tried it then buddy stole the dvi-hdmi connection frown.gif , Geting the hdmi -composits Will not work , The Gpu is not geting any sound. It caant reporduce the sound. It needs a score, like though the spif connection , Like i said its only 2 wires. that connect into the side of 295.
