ok, this set up is to my VIZIO TV as a hdmi input to the TV from the graphic card hdmi output, video fine (great really, 1080 is awesome on a 46" TV), anyway the audio is inop, tried removing the drivers and reinstalling. not sure if i have to many drivers-realtek and the ati card drivers. i have seen where some say that the TV can't "read" the audio and you need a reciever-then why does my DVD player attatched to the TV through the hdmi cable not have this problem ( tried the same port and no luck, i have 4 hdmi port to choose from-and yes sound does come through the TV speakers for the DVD player.i have seen other posts but none "look" the same as mine so i have made a post here to see if you guys can help. attatched is my Everest file. not sure why the graphics card shows 2 times in the display below, however this motherboard did come with on board graphics,which i just did not use. this is my son's pc.

It looks like the card is supposed to the support of transferring both audio and video via the same hdmi connection. It could actually be the output on the sound card. It is built onto the motherboard right? You may be able to change the output to point to the hdmi port on your video card. First click start then click control panel.

If in Category View:
1. Click sound, speech, and audio devices.
2. Click Sound and Audio Devices.
3. Click the Audio Tab
4. Change the Default device: to your ATI video card.

In Classic View:
1. Double Click Sound and Audio Devices
2. Click the Audio Tab
3. Change the Default device: to your ATI video card.

If it is already set to your ATI video card. Then you may try updating the drivers on both the onboard sound card and the Video Card. Go HERE and put the information into the drop down menu's on the right.
