So at some point I gona have no choice but to start using HDMI out on PC to my HDTV. consider pretty much no HDTV has DP or DVI anymore few that do are way to expensive. So I started to play around with. Defualt windows drivers for HDMI out on GPU is 2 channel only and NVIDIA card are supposed to be able to do 7.1 which would mean DD if program supports it, SO installed the Nvidia HD AUDIO and when lookin at the device it say it only 2 channels?? so what happen to 7.1 it claims? 1.3 hdmi and high speed (cat2) HDMI 10gbs are supposed to be able carry and send 5.1/DD other issue i noticed is I cant have my Onboard sound and HDMI sound from the GPU at SAME TIME, which means I would have to change default sound device every time I wanted to use my HDTV which would defeat the whole purpose of 1 cable to rule them all imo is there not way to have both on board sound and GPU hdmi out sound play at SAME TIME.
