Attach to your moterhboard. That should give you the ability to take any soundsource from the computer playin in AC/3 and port it your TV/receiver via the HDMI adapter cable.
Hope that helps! I need a cape
The DVI-HDMI adapter will carry the audio signal through DVI.
If you don't have spdif on your 8800GTS go here : http://forums.snapstream.com/vb/home...0gt-cards.html
for the fix. They'll have you edit the reg filed of the driver to make sure you can get video. Obviiously this will require you to have a seperate sound source. Make sure you get teh latest drivers, this issue may have been fixed.
