Yep I do have an optical in and out....But I dont really want to order a cable and use that as it is not really ideal....Was hoping to get sound working via the HDMI port?...Is there a way to disable the optical sound ports so maybe the HDMI passthrough for sound maybe kicks in?

Thank You

I am about to install http://downloads.guru3d.com/Forcewar...load-2419.html to see if this helps?...If I do go offline it will be very breif.

You have a picture of your card? Just found this,

????????????????

and a picture of it,

?????????????

and if your card is anything like that on (or even the 7600GT I used to have), there is no way that you were getting audio over HDMI as the DVI ports don't support it and there is no SPDIF connector on the card (to allow audio pass-through) like there is on the 8800 series and up,

Guide: 8800GT/9800GT/9800GTX Sound over HDMI (Now including Creative cards) - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net

(no idea why those Gateway links are like that)

I am going have to agree with stormy13, even if you have an HDMI out on the card there is no way to get audio through it with a pass-through connection.... So unless you are mistaken on the model of your card I am stumped.

Nope mine definately has monitor out,DVI and HDMI ports (3 seperate outputs) it was a Medion MD 8818 PC bought in Dec 2006..Could it be the driver is finding the incorrect graphics card?...

Nice that doing a search Medion doesn't even turn up that model (8818). Anyway a little persistant searching and I found this,

Aldi Medion media centre machine? - AVForums.com

rather nice of the guy in post #7 to copy and paste all of the specs for it. That said after looking it over twice I can find zero mention of that card being able to do audio over HDMI (and that card is very rare FWIW). The only thing it lists for audio is the following,

Quote:
Home-cinema experience:
8 channel High Definition Audio Out (Analog + S/P-DIF) For the digital home experience with optimum sound*****


The digital home cinema experience with perfect sound*******

*******Only when used with appropriate speaker systems (not supplied)
So unless the card has some kind of onboard audio of its own (like the ATI HD series) or a SPDIF header on it like the 8800 series (to connect to the SPDIF header on a sound card or on the motherboards onboard sound), I don't see how you managed to get audio over the HDMI connection.
