the dvi to hdmi does work for audio I was using just it not to long ago. For the op I would try to install or unistall your motherboard drivers to see if helps. I don't think that hdmi to component would make a difference, it is more then likely a software issue, unless nvidia changed things from the 200 series to the 400 series and you need that extra cable

i had gtx 275 with just dvi ports

it will stream audio using a dvi(video card)->(HDMI)on the tv,

you can get the spdif cables anywhere, or even source your own cables from a spare case with header wiring,

if you want to buy i beleive EVGA.com website has it in the parts section
found it!

First of all, as mentioned, you need to get that internal SPDIF cable.

As for your sound card, I don't think it has a dedicated SPDIF out connector. I do know that it has the pins for a front panel connection. Two of those pins may work as a ground and SPDIF out. I'll try to see if I can find any specific info on that.

In the meantime, you could disable your X-Fi sound card, and enable the onboard Realtek audio. You would then connect the cable to the SPDIF connector on your motherboard (at the bottom just below the last PCI slot) to the connection on your graphics card. You should then have an HMDI Output option to select in the Sound properties or Realtek HD Audio Manager. Note - NVIDIA Control Panel -> Display -> Change resolution -> Connector - should display "HDMI - HDTV (Audio Enabled)".

**** EDIT: This thread may be of some help...

Guys, thank you so much for all the replies. I'm going to check out to see if I have the s/pdif connector already in my computer. If not, I'll check out my extra pc parts and see if I have one lying around. If not, I'll purchase one hopefully at best buy or any other local computer parts store.

Then I'll try B-con's method to see if I get the HMDI Output option to select in the Sound properties menu.

Or the video card?

For the video card, yes. I just updated it last night to driver "266.58" I believe.

For the motherboard, it's been about half a year. However, I looked at RealTek's website for the download drivers and it's still the same ones as before.

Update:

I called everywhere last night at BestBuy, local computer parts stores, Fry's and either people didn't know what an S/PDIF connector was or they didn't carry it.
Drove 1/2hr out to Fry's and the S/PDIF connector they had was not compatible to my video card--gtx 295.

So, I purchased this one:


Off EVGA's website http://www.evga.com/products/moreInf...0Hardware&sw=4 for $25 (2nd day air delivery).
Let's hope this is my issue...

The cable was all you needed ... why convert DVI to HDMI when you already have an HDMI out on the card? Anyways, you should be golden now. At least for movies and stuff like that. Games ... dunno if you care, but ... if you use the onboard audio, you'll probably only get 'stereo' not 5.1 on some games due to their audio being encoded in LPCM ... those spdif cables cannot transmit 6 channel LPCM due to lack of bandwidth. If you're hooked up just to TV you'll never notice though prolley.

If you DO care about getting actual 5.1 digital sound to the TV, and your sound card supports Dolby Digital Live ... then you for sure should use your soundcard for the connection to your GPU if you can.

The DVI to HDMI converter was explained in my original post. I had this connector because my prior TV was a 1st generation HDTV. The 1st generation HDTV's had the DVI connector on them. That's what my Sony had. And in order to connect that to hdmi, that was the connector I was using.

Now, the new TV I purchased has just the HDMI. The only reason I received sound before is because I had a sound splitter. One connected to my PC speakers, and the other was to the audio cables that hooked to the TV. The Sony TV had 1 component that was for the DVI & Audio cable connections.

I hope it does work when I receive it. I will check immediately and see if that's the issue. I definitely love watching movies from my computer to the TV; however, I will not be using the TV to play games. I stick to the 23" monitor for that
