    Maybe stupid question but i just wanna make sure so...i have R9 380 and a monitor connected via HDMI no problems.

    Just bought a TV (well not yet im waiting for it) i wanna connect it to my R9 380 just to watch movies when im in bed, nothing else.

    Display port from gpu and -> Hdmi to tv cable should work right? The sound will work etc?

    Never done this connection before (PC - TV) so i dont know.

    I hope this dont mess with my taskbar etc.

    It should work just fine, I've got mine connected like that.
    1. Monitor DP-DP
    2. TV HDMI-HDMI

    Working just fine, but I would suggest connect TV via HDMI-HDMI to GPU and the Monitor via HDMI-DP to GPU
    Im not sure if using DP from GPU to TV would't interfeer with HDCP protocols
    If someone know better let me know.
