Will a DVI to HDMI conversion still carry audio? - Page 2

post #11 of 21
My GTX275s can carry audio through the DVI port to HDMI. You just need to attach the SPDIF cable to the GPU.

This will carry sound

For your 9400 to pass sound, you must hook up the spdif of the sound card to the spdif on the gpu. I'm not sure which 9400gt you have, so i can't be positive the pins are available on that card.

Thank you, exactly what I was looking for.

OK, since I have done this before let me clue you in as I see some misleading info here. YES. You can however, like its been said, an DVI-HDMI adapter will cure it. Some of the adapters needed are card specific though so keep that in mind as well. My 4890 adapter didn't work with my 5770.

However, you have Nvidia and this is different. I bought a Nvidia card for sound through put and I never got it working. But I would assume something like the adapter is needed.

A cheap fix would be a headphone to RCA jack to sound jacks on TV. But not sure of quality from that.

EDIT> Looks like Lost-boi said what I thought. Iirc, my Nividia card had to use the spdif cable. But wasn't sure til I seen his post, lol.

I put up a pic in the post above this. When you search Newegg or online, just look at the pics and see if all the pins are in.

Edit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882339207&cm_re=dvi_to_hdmi-_-82-339-207-_-Product

all pins are in.

whats the model of the 9400 and lets see if you've got spdif capabilities.

Model? It's PNY. Has S-Video, VGA, and DVI.

I'll just order that adapter and see if it works.

Does your card have this ? This little whit slot with 2 pins? If so, you're good to go. This goes to your spdif of your sound card or mobo. You MUST make sure you go ground to ground or you'll cause a problem.

Then explain why mine does. DVI can carry audio. I have DVI-HDMI into my TV and it carries audio. It'll depend on the card of course.

Oh wait, apparently my 9400gt won't make ANY sound. I can't be bothered to look in the case to see if it has it, so I think I'll just go with the plan below.

Alright. I'll get a regular DVI to HDMI converter along with what dealio has linked above, I have a double ended RCA somewhere.
