If your video card doesn't do HDMI, you can use the computers soundcard to ouput the sound - use RCA cables/SPDIF/Digital cable. As for the video card, since it doesnt do HDMI, use a DVI to HDMI cable (around $30-40 bucks). There are a multitude of options, you just need to look through your instructions for your TV.

Good luck

These your cards?

Newegg.com - EVGA 896-P3-1257-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked Edition 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

If so from looking at the pictures of it it should have come with both the DVI-HDMI adapter, and the SPDIF cable that needs to be connected to the SPDIF jumper on the card and the SPDIF connector on the motherboard; which on yours is here,

If you have the cable and the adapter, then once it is all connected properly and I believe set to SPDIF out in the Realtek controls (may have to wait for someone that uses it this way to conform), you should have both audio and video out over HDMI from the card.

Hi Stormy, unless I'm missing something, there's no SPDIF connection on that video card.

It's not going to work that way. Either the Video card will output the entire signal (audio & video) or it will only output the video portion. Hooking up the MB's SPDIF cable has nothing to do with this.

You are, that is how Nvidia did it. If you follow the link I posted previously it show how to connect it up with the 8800 and 9800 series cards. The GTX 260 isn't any different and unless it is in a different location than the one listed on Newegg the SPDIF in port on the card is here,

The card should have come with one of these adapters (look close enough you can see HDMI along the top of it),

HDCP-hdmidviadapter.jpg

and a cable like this,

HDCP-asusspdif.jpg

to connect between the SPDIF header on the motherboard or sound card and the one one the video card. Then when used with the above DVI-HDMI adapter allows for audio over HDMI with Nvidia cards.

Seems like this should be possible.

I posted this before, have you tried it?

Check any hidden output devices.
Right click on the Microsoft speaker icon, select playback devices.
Next, right click almost anywhere in the middle of the window that opens and select both "show disabled devices" and "show disconnected devices".

What devices are showing and which device is set as the Default Output?

Ok, you got me on that one...I see you can do it that way. However, Nvidia might call that an SPDIF connection, but it's not in the true sense.

S/PDIF - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
A common use for the S/PDIF interface is to carry compressed digital audio as defined by the standard IEC 61937. This mode is used to connect the output of a DVD player to a home theater receiver that supports Dolby Digital or DTS surround sound. Another common use is to carry uncompressed digital audio from a CD player to a receiver. This specification also allows for the coupling of personal computer digital sound (if equipped) via optical or coax to Dolby or DTS capable receivers. This only supports stereo sound, unless the personal computer supports Dolby Digital Live or DTS Connect
At any rate, will this solution allow 7.1? I've searched high and low but can't really find an answer, unlike ATI's solution which does do 7.1 and is stated.

I'm a stereo enthusist and use SPDIF Cables all the time.

At any rate, your solution does work. Sorry

My friend, done it, did it, past that, way far down the road,
Tommorrow I intend on uninstalling the Realtek audio drivers and software. See what W7 stock drivers do.

Did this at build,
1) DVI has no copper for sound, so the DVI>HDMI dongle will not pass sound.
2) the coax out will not work with just a left/right RCA splitter, to much impedance. Needs some kind of amplifier or converter.
If a mini stereo jack split to left/right rca works for older puter connected to HDMI input, and new puter with the PC input. Whats the difference?

On video cards that support it, yes it does,

9800GTX - no Audio over HDMI, please help - Guru3D.com Forums

NVIDIA HDMI Audio - Guru3D.com Forums

it is just that a regular DVI-HDMI adapter or cable won't work, you need the one from the card manufacturer.

As for it playing 5.1/surround, as I understand it as long as the source is 5.1 (DD or DTS) it will come out 5.1 on the other end.
