Windows 7: Recommend me a graphics card for pc to hdtv

Recommend me a graphics card for pc to hdtv

Hi all,

Basically cannot for the love of god manage to get my geforce 9400gt to play audio when my pc is linked via dvd to hdmi, thats another story though!

Basically i want a new card that is will transmit video and audio via 1 hdmi lead from my pc to my tv. I dont want to spend a fortune, somehere in the region of $80 max.

I dont play games on my pc so gaming not an issue, i purely want it to watch MLB.tv this season from the comfort of my sofa rather than in front of a pc monitor.

My understanding is that all things being equal i should be able to buy a standard hdmi cable for a hdmi - hdmi connection to give both video and audio, the same way that the Playstation 3 works.

Thanks in advance

Hi.

EDIT: Shouldn't your post read "via DVI to HDMI", which is the reason for having no sound through it.
