Windows 7: Problems with ATI HD 3450 Audio via HDMI

Problems with ATI HD 3450 Audio via HDMI

After uploading newest drivers, scrubbing my clean install of various generic audio and video codecs, drivers, devices and tools, I had spend about 4 hours of my life trying to get audio to work using a device that worked under XP MCE 2005.

Enough being enough, I weighed the costs and purchased a Galaxy GeForce GT220
for about 90 bucks at that local big box store. Sure I could have saved about $20-30 driving about 30 minutes each way in winter wet weather... I wanted audio over my home theatre system and I wanted it now.

First I downloaded the newest drivers available, installed the card, ripped out the default drivers and installed the new set.

Peace of mind, 7.1 sound, priceless.

I'll use that other card in my office where the silence of a passive card will be more appreciated.

Luck to others!

Sorry to hear you had such a bad experience with the 3450.... I am sure though that we could have helped sort it out.

Anyway, you got your audio and are happy so... :)
