EDIT: THIS IS ROUGHLYL HOW TO SET IT UP:

Ok man, I gotcha. Dude, DVI can also pass a HDCP signal. Ok...

So, http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.asp?m=100737720.

The spdif connector looksl ike this: http://xtreview.com/images/Gainword%...800%20GT06.jpg it's 2 pins.

READ THIS http://www.computing.net/answers/har...dif/57905.html

And then DO this: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/600/2
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.
